There's no escaping Xmas...

...anywhere in the world - more or less - but especially in Paris, chic shopping capital of the world. Our local supermarket had the Xmas chocolates out on display on 24th September, but we've waited a respectful couple of months after that before putting our decorations in place.

I have to admit, I'm not wild about Xmas, and was lacking inspiration for the decorations (and motivation to shell out a fortune for them). In the end, a cheap option was discovered (Ikea!) and I just sort of chucked it all together. No tree this year (remember last year's?), but plenty of red shiny things.

Oh, and whilst shopping for something else entirely, I came across the final touch, and couldn't resist. These little critters will be there to greet you every morning of the holiday season with their sweet, loveable, made-in-China-ness. Cute, or cheesy? Frankly, I don't care. I think they're cool.

Happy holidays to you all!
