Still, after pretty much anyone in the Team Site had poked, kicked and cursed the damn thing, we got it up and running again. After that, and a couple of beers shared with the security officer - we really deserved a beer, or at least so we told ourself - I got around to Decorate the Tree!
Back when I grew up, I used to look forward to decorating the tree almost as much as I did look forward to opening presents. These days... well, I think I enjoy it more than the presents! And while I did get to decorate the 'real' tree when I was on leave, it's still something special about doing it on the proper day for doing such things - in other words, on the day before Christmas Eve.
And yes, it's true even if the tree is 60 cm tall, made of genuine plastic and comes in a card board box...
Just slightly beaten up after the airline's gentle handling...
...although it's hard to break plastic.
A green bottle brush?
Well, vaguely tree like green bottle brush.
Lights are working.
Not the largest pile of ornaments, but then again it's a tiny tree.
There is a certain order to how to do a tree; after the lights, tinsel goes on.
The tree got balls - tiny little balls.
