The collection of tree ornaments we have are ones that we bought from our first Christmas together.
There are others that were given to us by my Mum and each year Stuart and I buy at least one ornament to keep the tradition going. We tend to go for the reds and golds but there are some others that have special meanings to us.
A Spode china Millennium bauble which always has pride of place, and a gold bell which has a picture of a Border Terrier on the side,which we bought the first Christmas we lost our lovely Monty in 2008.
We also have a lovely set of the Lilliput Lane tree decorations as Stuart collections the lovely houses, and especially the snowy and wintry ones.
The decorations that we had when I was a child are still in the family, making their way to my home after Mum died. The original fairy that was on the trees I recall from my childhood is part of those decorations.
As a child we used to have chocolate ornaments on the tree which I was never allowed to have until Christmas Eve, and then not all in one go!
