I'm not sure yet getting the tree out of my loft is usually a bit of a faff, there's no ladder so I usually have to balance on the top of my banister. This year I'm pregnant, so balancing anywhere, especially on a ledge the size of my foot, and the top of my stairs, probably isn't a good idea!! OH isn't back from uni until Dec 15th, which is much too late, so I'll have to find/bribe someone else to go up there!!
I also have the issue that I have no space in my living room for it! We had to move everything around to fit in the dining table and our new sofa. So the only real space would be in front of the window. But then it blocks the (very little) light we get, and blocks the radiator too, which means no tree chocolates! And I think it would block the view of the tv from the sofa too!

Sorry to totally change the subject.. but luci and bump - i noticed in your sig your daughters name is evelyn... do you pronounce it eve-lyn or ever-lyn. Do people tend to pronounce it wrong?

If I may butt in I have a relative called Evelyn and she says "Eve-lyn". If you wanted it to be Everlyn, maybe you could actually spell it like that? Otherwise she'd probably be forever correcting people haha. I don't know though, maybe other Evelyns say it your way!

Since moving to the US 8 years ago we have been putting it up the day after Thanksgiving, so we will put it up on the 24th November.

We say Ever-lyn. Her reception teacher called her Eve-lyn a few times, but DD soon corrected her! Now we don't have any problems with people saying it wrong
