At last, with 10 days to go before Christmas we finally have a Christmas Tree up.
I assembled the “tree”, then left the room while the children tackled the box of decorations. I think they did a particularly good job. My favourite bit is their use of a “Happy Birthday” crown that Miss Boo brought back from a birthday party earlier in the week.
I pulled out the nativity scene I’d hand made from modelling clay back last century. It’s showing a little bit of wear and tear, but I just love the expressiveness of these figures.
When I first made it I always had in mind to go back and make more figures in later years, but when I tried my hand at a shepherd the next year I just couldn’t get it to work. The knack or muse had passed.
If I don’t see you again before then, may you all have a blessed Christmas.
