So the tree went up... no problem there, then the lights put in place... no problem there, then we turned them on...
Eeeewwww!!! You could hardly tell they were switched on, talk about a dim light - very disappointed with the lights on the tree :( So we had a conversation that went - 'Oh, they are not very good lights are they' 'We should buy some more... didn't we say that last year' 'I thought we had bought new lights' 'wait a minute' opens another box of Christmas bits and hey presto found another set of lights. Yes we had bought new lights last year and I had forgotten to mark the box and separate the outside lights from the inside lights...lol!
So once the lights on the tree were replaced and turned on to double check we hadn't got it wrong again...hehehe, this is what our tree looks like :)
*sigh* I love a pretty tree, I could look at it all night!
