Thought it was about time Douglas (our potted Christmas tree) started to come in to get used to the inside temperature before the outside temperature plummets too much. 

He’s in the dining room which, without the fire being lit, is probably only a couple of degrees warmer than outside anyway – so he should be fine!!  We’ll keep an eye on him over the next few days, and then he can take his place standing on the chest of drawers in front of the window and be decorated.  It would be too hot for him in the lounge with the log burner going, and in any case there’s no room for him now – he’s grown a bit since last Christmas! 😉
