WEEKEND IN PICTURES
This past weekend, Paul and I finally bought a Christmas tree - a Nordman Fir. When we finally managed to track some down, my initial response was, "...they're so small?!" I guess I've become accustomed to huge trees a la National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation: trees so huge, they barely fit into your living room. When I was a kid, I remember going out to Christmas tree "farms" and cutting down ginormous beasts of a tree.
Anyway, I finally managed to take photos of the flat I moved into in October.
Here's the bedroom.
This is the wee "extra" room off the kitchen. The futon pulls out into a comfortable bed, or so I have been told. Currently, the room is being used as Paul's "dressing room". See Paul gets up before I do and because he is such a sweet boyfriend (or rather, because I am a beast when woken from a deep slumber), Paul gets dressed and ready so as not to awake me from my dreams of unicorns, rainbows, marshmallows, and sunshine (thanks, Bob)!
Living room - with electric fireplace!
The Christmas tree, which I finally got around to decorating this evening! Also, Paul's feet/slippers in the foreground. MOTHER - note that I have not opened your gifts (see large green package to the right).
