Christmas snowflake light

Probably the closest we'll get to snow this Christmas, what with it being Australia, and summer. And we've had a few too many 40degree+ days with summer barely begun.

You know the whole digital photography thing is getting to you when you're hanging around in a department store Christmas section waiting for the snowflake light to shift colours to the one you want to photograph...

My favourite Christmas lights come from Ikea - a small string of fairy lights with a 3-battery box. So you can wear them - or give them to small children and watch their faces go aaaaaah!

It's time to replug in the house's fairy lights - it's after 1 December. Maybe tomorrow (it's a modest array, but nice). Today was a Rumpelstiltskin day on the computer, and my wrists are very tired and rather achy - particularly my right (mouse/touchpad) hand. The straw isn't gold yet, but it's on the way.

(with fairy lights).
