A Shameful Lack Of Foresight

I wrote that I was going to have a special series this week, on ‘some of my favourite things that really cost very little.’ I didn’t think that idea through very well. I scoured the house for more cheap goodies, and came up with nothing of interest. Oh well. I can’t imagine I’ve ruined anyone’s Christmas with my lack of foresight.

Yet, advice is free, so to those Aucklanders planning on viewing Christmas lights on Franklin Road, please don’t. The streams of traffic are very annoying to those of us who want to drive along Ponsonby Road after dark. The best lit house in Auckland isn’t there, anyway. This one on Sarsfield Street in Herne Bay kicks Franklin Street’s arse single-handed. And no crowds.

whilst it certainly has lighting in abundance, I fear it's completely lacking in style..

Thank-you for your comment, Drew. Did you know that irritability can be a symptom of a worm infestation? May I suggest a visit to your local chemist. Merry Christmas!

Thank God my kids are well passed the stage of wanting to do the christmas light run is all I can say. Yay for teenagers! (can't believe I just said that lol)
