Christmas preparations

For Christmas, I take the family photos from the mantelpiece and replace them with tea lights in all sorts of candle holders - stars and glass, tin and red beaded ones. The tree's not up yet, but the mantelpiece is changed over as of a couple of days ago. There is something meditative and beautiful about thirty tealights flickering in the darkness. Outside, I've turned on the timer for the fairy lights so they come on each evening - a modest nod to the season, my fairy lights, but a pleasure nevertheless.
