Bah Humbug is up and running for another year folks. Suppose I shall have to drag my weary body up the loft ladder soon to retrieve the pre lit Christmas Tree that I purchased (at great expense) last year in order to outdo the neighbours and give them something to look at in the dark evenings (mid afternoon at the moment).

Bah Humbug to the lot of it :twisted:

Our xmas decs are going to stay in the attic where they have been for the last 10 or so years, when & if my Wife asks if I'm fetching them down this year I give my usual reply which is "I will fetch them down if you put up and decorate the tree & the house & take it all down after new year" that's why they've stayed in the attic all this time......... Bah! Humbug proper or what? :evil: :evil: :evil:
