Twelve drummers drumming

As it’s 12th night tonight, I suppose I should extract my digit and finish taking the Christmas tree down. I already stripped the decorations off just before dinner, but I think I might leave the lights on it when I pack it away in it’s box (it’s a plastic tree).

This year’s timely activity on the last day of Christmas is a distinct improvement upon a couple of years ago, when the tree remained in the corner of front room till the end of February – and the garland on the mantelpiece stayed in place all year! Luckily they were both plastic too, else they would no-doubt have turned quite brown and started to smell.
