The tree's up

This year I did the whole job while Mrs. Elbeno tended to mini-Elbeno. It's looking good this year, in the dining room rather than the living room where little hands run amok. We have finally retired some of the original cheapo filler ornaments we bought when we first got the tree. This year we toyed with the idea of buying a new artificial, ready-lit tree, but they are quite expensive and they are mostly white lights only – I like coloured lights. And it's not that hard to string lights, just time-consuming. This year we have 700 lights on the tree which gives me some left over to decorate my cube at work.

Two ornaments have made their debut this year: the obligatory “Baby's First Christmas” (thanks Grandad & GJ) and the pickle!
