sure do!!


we didn't bring any over when we came, so the first christmas I bought loads of cheapos from the chinese bazaar - about 1 euro a set

6 years on they're all still going - and I've added more each year - even musical ones - flashing ones - you name it!!

I'm going to get a couple of sets of white 'rice lights' this year

That's a shame he could have helped Li with her screwing, he seems to be turning into a lightweight lately
