Both in good nick!

One was the ready-lit, plug in, type - it comes in two halves that you clip together, and a stand. Lights and cones, but you can add your own ornaments.
This one looked robust enough to be stood outdoors!!

The other was a self-assembly kind of thing, two "trunk " pieces and the lower ones had "branches" but there are also removable branches on wire hooks that you can add to fill it out.

Ive sometimes seen Christmas trees, large or small, in charity shops. I intend to snap them up!

Next year's theme was going to be Angels, but I might switch to Narnia :-) now that I've got the beginnings of a forest.

Was chatting to neighbour last night and noticed she still had the lights on her two small trees in the garden. Made a joke that she was late taking them down and she said she liked them so much she is leaving them on all year. A nice subtle Christmas reminder every time I arrive home in the dark

Working from home this afternoon for the first time since before christmas (using the desktop & not laptop pc) and my christmas desktop background was still up. Almost felt a shame to change it. That has to be the last christmas related item left in the house all stored away for another few months.

Work Christmas Party tonight Looking forward to it - even though there will be no Christmassy elements to it. Except for me, I have a gold sequin dress and at 7 months pregnant, I look like a giant gold bauble
