Robin climbed up the ladder – and down comes Christmas. All those twinkling lights that were so carefully strung along the fence, they’ve now been unhooked, rolled up, and put away. The Christmas decorations and wall-hangings have been taken down, and the photos put back on the wall where they belong. My pretty snowy village scene has been packed away, as have the various Santa’s who were hanging about the place. Everything has been put away in plastic crates for safe keeping, then with a bit of effort and the odd grunt or two, hauled up those narrow stairs into the loft. Until next Christmas, when we will do it all again.
