This is not a countdown…


Although, as you would guess, I am not going to get caught up in countdowns, over this past weekend I have noticed that festive spirit is being pressed upon us from all sides. Santa arrived by RNLI Lifeboat to our own little coastal corner on Friday night, greeted individually by almost every child within (what appeared to be) a twenty mile radius.

Apparently this triumphant arrival entrances the town every year, and festivities over the weekend sanction [our] immersion in seasonal activities.

School fairs have been visited, nostalgia satisfied, craft making/shopping opportunities explored.

Thus inspired, we embarked on that other mammoth undertaking. Festive adornment of chez nous. So. A mountain of spangles/baubles/trimmings/lighting brought downstairs. A tree unearthed.

Furnishing re-arranged.

Tree assembled/decorated.

Lights not working.

Disillusionment. Dejection. Deterred.

Festive spirit tonic required.

About xtrekki

OK - I've been doing this for almost a year now and have still not mastered the mysteries of blogging!! WHAT are widgets? What are tags? Where on the dashboard do I find them or an explanation of how I can get them to work for me? In other aspects of my life I am fairly sharp. I could certainly be advisor to Hercule Poirot in unraveling his most impenetrable of cases. So - why oh why can I not figure out how to manage this bloomin' blog???????

      Some poetic licence at work here methinks??
      Only 1 small set of lights malfunctioned – not the larger set for the tree. But I understand that ‘lights not working’ was true (ish) AND is almost a prerequisite to any story about putting up a tree so probably forgivable not to have elaborated???

Looking forward to hearing from you...often!
