We've been prettifying the house and garden with nice lights - there's much more scope here with a big house and garden. After we put up a few, we heard the previous owner traditionally wound lights round every single tree in the garden (well, that's not happening!) but I think we're holding our own as the village has its own Facebook group and the self-appointed mayoress has congratulated all the inhabitants this week on their festive hygge.
So far we've down the hedge and the house, and we've added a wee flowery tree too outside the turret.
The kids are still working on Thomas to acquire this for the flagpole - let's see who wins that one.
