Today is one of the days in November which I most look forward to. Took an hours' bus ride to Ikea to select my tree!! But am very pleased. Missed the first tree which was selected by the lady in front of me in queue. That was a lovely one but nonetheless, am excited.

It will be delivered only next week as I took advantage of the one week free storage. I would love to have it earlier but one week in cold storage will keep it fresher till Christmas.

I love live trees and will never go back to artificial ones. Unfortunately I have started K & A on that path as well. Hehe. We got them a tree last Christmas as a surprise Christmas present. And A has decided that they will start buying live ones starting this year. Just waking up to the fresh pine scent in the morning reminds me each day that Christmas is drawing near and since we have no snow or cold cold weather, we can only make up for it with the smell of Christmas. :)

The thing about having live trees in our hot and humid Singapore, is that we have to try to keep them as far away as possible from sunlight or any heat source. There is, fortunately, a corner of our house which is just perfect for it. In my dad's house, his tree did not last at all the first year they got it as it was just beside the balcony where the sun shone all day. But also, he, being very sensitive to smells, did not enjoy the lovely pine scents. Said it gave him a headache all day. Ha ha.

So have to wait a week before tree is up. :)
