Hi, everybody. OK, so I'm going to show you my Christmas decorations.
OK, so da daaa! Here's my Christmas tree. It's not the biggest tree, but it fits perfectly here. And it stands up straight, which is a miracle. They don't normally do that, so I'm quite happy.
Let's have a look who we've got. We've got this lovely rabbit in his tartan jacket. I've got quite a lot of animals, as you'll see. Down here, right, this is the Christmas dinosaur. I actually made this one years ago. He's got this, like, shiny sequined jacket. And that's why he's near the disco ball, there, obviously, having a Christmas dance, and he used to have a present here, but unfortunately he's lost that gift over the years. But we keep him because we like him.
Up here we've got, er, here's Cat. That's another homemade one. That was from the days when I had no money, was really enthusiastic about Christmas, but obviously I had a lot more time on my hands than I do these days. Don't do much sewing now.
Oh yeah! Aaah, this lovely penguin! Umm, this was a present from one of my students when I was a teacher at the British Council in Paris. So thank you so much! That was about 15 years ago. If she's watching, your penguin is still with me, thank you so much.
Here we've got these beautiful sardines. I like those. I like the, erm, because I live in Barcelona, I love the connection to the sea and the Mediterranean. Those sardines that just glitter in the light.
And, right OK, this is the last one that I'm going to show you. Erm, and I don't actually like this one. You'll see why. OK, can you see this snowman? I think the reason – I find him a bit creepy and I think it's because he's got these, like, human eyes and mouth. I find him a bit weird, so I just leave him at the back there, hidden.
OK, so, this is my Christmas tree in all its full glory and I'd love to hear about Christmas decorations or decorations in your house if you've got them where you live or if you've got them in your town.
