I really want to put it up on the 1st. In Wellington there is a beautiful Xmas shop at the lovely old department store there. I worked in the Xmas shop when I had just finished school for a couple of months. Love it! Last year my mum sent me some of their kiwi themed decorations and when we went for our holiday it had just opened for the year & I got more plus some beautiful vintage look babooshka doll decorations. They're so pretty! The kiwi ones are so cool! An all blacks angel, little buzzy bees, kiwi baubles, a little metal sheep & kiwi with dangley legs, and more! But problem is with our plans to move plus we are going away for Xmas so df doesn't think we should put the tree up. I might take some decorations away & find a plant to hang them on where we stay or something.
