When I was at my illness I used to find this time of year so difficult. Desperately wanting to be involved but not even being able to decorate our tree I was so weak. I bought a full size xmas tree for my bedroom because I spent so long there and barely saw the tree downstairs.
Now I'm better I still have to rein myself in a bit or I get exhausted! But I remember and cherish every year that I get to do all the things that I couldn't manage and would never manage again.
So I thought I would share with you my Christmas tree, fully decorated by me! My room is very small but I still manage to squeeze in the full size tree and who cares if I get a few bruises from there being a little less space!
I have no theme for my tree it's made up of ornaments that all mean something to me and I am terrible for adding to my collection! That said, there is a sort of theme....glitter! I do love a bit of sparkle.
These are a few of my favourites that I'll randomly talk about. So the treble clef is for my love of all things musical and singing (plus it's super sparkly!). Plus it's more relevant than ever now because this year I started to learn music theory and just took my grade 3 exam.
I have a big love of Disney too so there are a lot of disney ornaments on my tree. Pinnochio is a big part of my childhood and Jiminy Cricket and When you Wish Upon a Star, we're both of huge significance as I grew up and during my wait for transplant. This Jiminy is so gorgeous I love him!
