We didn’t have a real tree last year – long-time readers might remember we’d just moved into our house and with boxes everywhere and two unsettled cats, I couldn’t face daily pine needle hoovering as well. I bought a very lovely paper tree from John Lewis, but it just wasn’t the same. So hooray for real Christmas trees and the constant hoovering/daily bauble collection due to naughty cats/fear of electrocution when you water it with the lights on that comes with them!

For our Christmas tree outing, I went full festive and wore my Christmas jumper for the first time this year. Rob wore a matching one but did not allow me to capture the moment in all its seasonal glory, sadly.
We didn’t have to go far for our tree – a 30 second walk from our house is a beautiful shop called The Fruit Stall, which sells fruit, veg, flowers, herbs and – at the moment – amazing, locally-sourced Christmas trees. Rob heaved our chosen one onto his shoulders, I got a cinnamon hot chocolate from the cafe (I wasn’t much help, tbh) and we wandered home singing carols. It was quite insufferably jolly, actually.
I wrapped up way too warmly, but when you’re picking out a Christmas tree you might as well go the whole hog, amirite? My fave thing about Saturday’s outfit is this brilliant bobble hat sent to me by the aptly-named Bobbl – the ‘bobbls’ are INTERCHANGEABLE, guys. Why hasn’t anyone done this before? I think it’s a fab idea and I love my navy version with a natural bobbl for subtly stylish days and a bright orange one for LOOK AT ME days.
I’ve got a Bobbl hat and two bobbls to give away to one of you, too – take a look at my Twitter for your chance to win. Merry Christmas!
