They say you learn something new every day, and today mine is that finding the perfect christmas tree is a lot harder than i first thought! My boyfriend is determined we are having a real one, but he's in the navy and isn't actually home til just before christmas, so whats the point in having a real tree he won't be able to fully appreciate? Having said that, to keep him sweet we went shopping for the 'perfect' tree, and let me tell you we were unsuccessful ! There were just so many, and each tree looked totally different, and trying to fit some of them into our flat would be impossible! (not to mention the 5 flights of stairs and no lift.) I don't really know what I'm trying to get at this post, i just thought id share my frustrating of finding our tree, i mean whats wrong with a standard artificial one we can use every year? Or is a real tree more significant?
