They have arrived! Cashmere Bed Socks

The count down to Xmas has started! I always aim to start my preparations early so as to avoid that last minute rush, but once again I can foresee myself charging madly round on Xmas Eve tracking down those last few bits and pieces and frantically wrapping presents into the early hours of the morning!  
 
With the nights getting chillier, our beautifully soft cashmere bed socks have been in high demand. I could not resist treating myself to a pair and now cannot imagine how I slept without them! They make a great Xmas present and come luxury gift boxed.

There may be a lot to be said for the convenience of an artificial tree but
I feel nothing can beat the nostalgic scent of a real tree. Here in Rutland it is part of the tradition of Xmas for us, going in pursuit of this year’s specimen from a local tree farm where we know it's going to be sustainable and trees will be replanted.

It amazing how long it can take to choose, what with us arguing the merits of each tree. But somehow once those familiar and increasingly precious decorations have been hung from its branches, that “too-wide” “too-tall” tree always ends up looking perfect in its imperfection!
