Christmas tree lights – Agggggggggghhh! I must have used just about every swear word I know – and I have many in my vocabulary! It took me 3 sets to find the ones that worked. Most annoying was the one that worked on the floor so I spent ages criss crossing them around the tree, making them all fit beautifully at precise intervals… when I went to switch them on a third of those dammed little bulbs failed to light. I got the spare bulb packet out and started replacing, but still nothing. They all had to come off and I started again but this time with Michael Buble’s Christmas album and a tumbler of mulled wine to improve my mood.
