Went up to 'WHAT' in Rogerstone yesterday to get a garden tool. Nothing! All gardening implements removed from the shelves, which are now full of reindeer's, Christmas lights, Santa dolls, trimmings, Christmas cards and all of the rest of that stuff.........!
Where did the summer go?!!
Meanwhile on planet earth, is it too early to wish you a mer................no, I won't do it.

Good Afternoon

Indeed Christmas starts early in our house! For many years now, at Christmas time we like to display the little light up houses, you may have seen the kind of thing in garden centres and the like.
It started off on a small scale, but each year we added a few more items and now have quite a collection, the predominant brand is called “Lemax”.
It is our hobby starting around now to “build” our village, a few hours at weekends and such like.
Last year it was in our conservatory having outgrown the table top. I also recently managed to work out how to post a video of it onto YouTube, Taff would be proud of me!
Friends and family visit to view it, the kids love it! they put a bit in our donations tin which goes towards buying children in hospital gifts at Christmas.

If I’ve done it correctly the following should link to the video... apologies for the quality but should give you an idea.

Think it's on again now. Young Gavin has said students can go home for Christmas - but they may have to self isolate...... yeah right.

Good Evening Sully!

Thanks for your appreciation!

That video was last years effort, we have nearly finished this years village, final stage is the “snow”.

Hopefully I’ll post a video of this one too, in due course. We enjoy doing it, and it’s a kind of hobby now, the planning and placement etc.

I look forward to seeing ot Phil! Recently divorced and a last minute move before Christmas last year affected my ability to decorate. This year at least I'll have decorations on my tree :)
