In a bid to be environmentally friendly and do my bit for a sustainable Christmas, I bought some solar lights that you plant in the garden. But hubby won't let me put them in the garden because of the danger of them being nicked. So I've got a lovely pile of boxes in my hall way.
I've had my eye on solar fairy lights for some time but they have been extremely hard to come by, and very expensive. But today, I found them for sale in a big local department store and bought a box of 139 lights.
The beauty of these is that I can string them high up on the roof to prevent them getting stolen - or at least, I can get hubby to climb a very tall ladder and string them high on the roof!
So now I'm happy - I can have as many pretty flickering Christmas lights as I like strung about the house without worrying about melting the Arctic ice cap. All I want now is someone to invent one of those big Father Christmas arrangements out of solar lights. If you know where I can get something like it, please let me know.
