Christmas comes but once a year and we love it. We put the lights up with great joy, only to find half of them do not work and so it’s a trip to Homebase or maybe even an exciting visit to the local garden centre where you can buy anything naff your heart desires.
Then come the delightful decorations, some of which may have seen better days. So … it’s a trip back to Homebase to replenish the stock and then off for another exciting trip but this time to the recycling centre to discard the less than perfect.
Once up, everything looks very Christmasy – oh b …… er! – a light has gone so we will have to rewire that section of Christmas lights. I fear yet another trip to Homebase coming along. What jolly fun!
