I've got that. Won't be seeing it this year though, we're being grinches and not putting the tree up.

Can you not hang it in the window or something? Give it a spin and see if it disappears.

Does the door open...just wondering if you can get more in than you think

That would mean going up into the loft, get down the crate with decorations in it, find the TARDIS, hang it up and replace crate in loft. Nope, not happening especially if when spun it disappeared, that would be sad.. Sadly there is no opening door, major design fault in my opinion.

Indeed, you could have packed all the other Christmas decorations inside.

Plus, think of the advantages of sending everything forward to next Christmas - no need for loft storage!!

So far all I've got is a stunned silence, but I'm used to that.

Nice,

I'd like to pause to point out that at least one of those tweets in the article didn't reference a petty crime. £6.00 for a pint is outright robbery.

You must feel like you're from a different planet sometimes. We'll have to start calling you ET.

It's all the stranger because on the surface we appear to speak the same language. Only we really, really don't.

I get vertigo though, I'm not riding a bike up that high.
