Inspired by OscarLucinda I found a way of having a tree without it being mauled by little hands. This tree was the only living thing in our backyard.. and I pulled it up. It was a very ugly garden tree, but makes a great Christmas tree!
In other news Gus is obsessed with our toilet. If we ever leave the door open he's in there like a flash, washing his hands in it. YUK.
