At the weekend I helped my mum take down all the decorations. I will most miss the tree. I liked to bob the baubles and watch my refection wibble about. Josie will most miss - mum had put some of our cards in a display thing and Josie liked to see it she could jump over it without knocking any cards down. She couldn't but that didn't stop her trying. So she will miss that.
It's very sad when Christmas ends. Mum was cheering herself up polishing off the Christmas biscuits. I said Josie and I should cheer ourselves up and polish off our Christmas treats but mum said no.
Mum did go through all our cards and some special ones have been put by and will be made into new cards and/or gift tags for next year. That makes Christmas 2013 feel not so far away and I felt better knowing that. The flat looks very bare without all the glitter and tinsel around.
Mum says we will have to find some new ways to keep happy. Hmm.

I'm sure you will, Toby, you're very inventive. Still, at least there are still more treats to finish off! Just bide your time: they keep better than mum's biscuits.
I miss da tree too.
We don't have a tree mum reckon I might try and climb it our cards are still out Grandma goes to take them down and something comes up. A picture of me in my Christmas hat stay up all year Grandma thinks it's cute and doesn't want to take it down and lose it.
Toby, I loved our tree but it disappeared on January 1. I told Mom it's customary to leave it up until Three Kings Day. That reminds me: Don't you British eat a special cake with a crown on it on Three Kings Day? Did your Mom bake one of those for you? Maybe with a tuna filling?
