The C Word

Yes, already. Over the weekend huskyteer and I went to look at the Christmas wonderland at the garden centre. We shrieked over some of the merchandise on offer but the things which made us go ‘Eeuw!’ rather than ‘Hee!’ were *plush reindeer heads*. Yup, sad decapitations to fix on your wall in an old-time yuletide spirit. Some of the displays were nice, though. I’ve always had a weakness for little light-up village scenes like this one.



Here’s a silver Christmas



and here a red one.



The Santa on the far right is doomed to climb forever up and down his treadmill ladder.
For people who hate tradition, there’s this cinema theme.




And much, much more, including far too many owls for a person who's watched Twin Peaks.

In other news, after some frantic reading and reviewing, I've just started Claire Tomalin's biography of Dickens. I may be some time.
