Mind you, the deccies came as a surprise and he managed to get himself stuck! Just tinsel and lights and my precious santas (too high for him to reach!) - easy to rebuild without baubles.
It was so pretty, I turned the lights off and stared at it for about 15 minutes :-)
No pressies underneath yet - I am not going to tempt fate! Those are still locked in a cupboard!
24hr update - it's still standing, a bit battered, but still standing. Tinsel is still intact (mostly), ancient Canadian Santas untouched and the lights still work! And the feline demon seems to be beginning to lose interest [x's fingers]
But I am still bending branches back into shape where he has slept on them - being a big little ginger fluffball!
48hr update - the tree is still standing - just. Sadly, Charlie has noticed the Santas and two of them ended up on the floor (luckily undamaged). The tinsel is a mess, the tree is all bent out of shape and the lights are becoming knotted.
Two things I said to MB (safely back from his travels) as I stubbornly bent the tree back into shape, replaced the tinself and recovered my Santas.
I am going to have my Christmas tree if it kills me!'
'These Santas have hung on a Christmas tree for over 40 years - they will hang on it this year!'
