Chilli lights in the conservatory! along with solar stars & battery operated copper wire lights!
In the living room a jack daniels bottle illuminated with fairy lights & broken glass!
I think at Christmas my house is visible from space! x
Space, now there’s a thought, wonder if those extra terrestrials are looking down on us carers and staying:
you first, no you first, no I’ll go after you -
no chance I’m not going down there in the midst of all that confusion xx
We have been having foul weather, rain and very grey for a few days but to my surprise my lights are still working. I have added a few battery operated ones for 'special occasions' and if you use rechargeable batteries, they are not too expensive.
Just do what suits you. I have standard fairy lights, colored ones, star shapes and some funny little spiral things.
I did lash out and bought one of those things that picks up the grotty stuff on the floor and gives it a mop as it goes.
It is a superficial clean but it cuts the time of sweeping and mopping the hard floors down to one job instead of two. I find it helps keep things looking reasonable in quick time so is very useful. Of course it doesn't do things like the skirting boards and corners very well but I like that I can use it daily and it tends to make my weekly clean a bit easier, it doesn't like grouting between the tiles much but I can deal with that. And it picks up pet hair!
It is battery operated, uses very little water so the floor dries very quickly and I am pleased I bought it.
