So I don’t know if I have mentioned it before, but I live in a teacher’s housing apartment block on the fourth floor (right at the top), and my next door neighbours are a young family with a 3 year old girl (or somewhere around that age). She loves to collect ‘things’ when they go out and every time they return from their outing, she places whatever she found on the staircase wall-thing that is outside both our front doors. Normally it is various sizes of sticks, pieces of plastic (usually orange in colour) and little rocks.
However, this evening I come home from school to find the most gorgeous little pine cone Christmas tree sitting there amongst her collection. I immediately grabbed my phone to take a picture as it put such a smile on my face, and I love the fact that I will see it every time I leave my apartment.
I am now quite tempted to add my own Christmas ornament to her collection just for the fun of it, but she might have this whole thing masterfully planned as to what gets placed where, so maybe I won’t. 😉
