Lights going up!

We started work on our lights last week outside, we got most of them done but the weather turned rainy and windy here so we haven't been able to finish yet.

The weather is supposed to break tomorrow so we should hopefully finish before the rain comes back (again sighs) on Tuesday.

I have worked it out that we have over 3000 bulbs in our collection now. I would probably buy more but we are definitely almost out of places to plug stuff in lol.

We sadly cannot put many lights on the ground, one year we had rogue carol singers turn up, we said no and they ripped a snowman light off and cycled away on their bikes with it

If we get it finished tomorrow I will gladly take some pics and get them uploaded providing I can get my phone to connect to this computer which now runs Fedora Linux.

Take care Everybody, 31 days until Christmas! (UK anyway for now)

Good luck with that - we've had horrendous weather as well. Hope it clears long enough for you to get finished!!

Our weather hasn't been as bad as what it has been in northern England and Scotland... I feel so sorry for the people that have had their homes destroyed in the floods... for many Christmas just wont be very good

Just taken a couple of pics and will take more later.




Above: Ice Skating Snowmen



Above is the front of the house, it is of a very low quality, my phone has a 3.2MP cybershot camera but it's not great in the dark.

I will try to get my stepdad to record it or take better photo's he has a nikon D40./
