Although last Sunday was the start of Advent, we traditionally decorate for Christmas over the first weekend of December, which is also when we usually celebrate Liz's birthday.
It went faster than it sometimes has, as we'd managed to do a thorough clean and tidy during the week, which meant we could get straight on with actual decorating.
