We went yesterday (with the wheelchair!) to get replacement bulbs for our verandah lights, as mentioned they only sell them with the Christmas lights. While we where there we had a look around the festive decorations and other things, even though we are always moaning about how soon they come into the shops! But as it was a half hour drive, and we were having a bit of an outing we thought we'd make the most of it, so had a good nose around as this shop has a huge selection of stuff, for every taste.
It's incredible what people will spend on Christmas. The only things we like are the 'traditional' style of decoration, the glitzy gold and silver just leaves us cold. We even bought a couple of christmas tree decorations that amused us; who could resist this little reindeer?!
We also bought all 8 of the light bulbs they had on display - it's only a matter of time before they discontinue them, as with normal household lightbulbs. We all have to buy energy-saving ones now, you know the sort where you switch them on but still can't see anything because they take half an hour to warm up!
