A christmas tree with a view.

The Living room

The veiw from the window.

Bag of decorations and a note.

My contribution to the comunal Christmas tree.
I have the most fantastic veiw from my flat. I over look the river Mersey and Bootle docks. My neice Paige said she does not like the veiw because it is too industrial but I love it because it is the heart of Bootle and its birth.  I know my photo does not really do the view justice but if you look closely as I took the picture a ferry is sailing up the river.

Yesterday there was a knock on the door and when Colin opened it he was greeted by a bag of Christmas decorations and a note saying dress me. In the corridor somebody had place a rather misserable looking Christmas tree. I am very particular about Christmas decorations and as you can see from my home I like minamalism so I had mixed emotions about this tree being in the corridor. I decided not to be a bar humbug and ask for the tree to be removed and decided to do my bit of the tree very tasteful. The last photo is what I did with the bits from the bag. I did however return the gold tinsel to the neighbour whose bright idea this was with a note of my own saying "I do not do tinsel its very tacky". I have not been out in the corridor since so I do not know if any of the other neighbours have added to the tree as apparently we all got a bag of decorations and a note.  Watch this space and I will let you know.

What a nice neighbourly idea. I'm with you on the tinsel :-)
Your flat is looking gorgeous, you must be delighted with it.
