The Christmas lights have been put up today on the lamp-posts in our area!…..and we haven’t had Hallowe’en!
In a time of financial strictures and fuel poverty, I think there are probably better and more pressing uses for the money. And why were they putting them up on a Sunday?…..was there an extra-time bonus involved?
They are pretty when switched-on, but I think I would rather see the footpaths improved or a special payment to OAPs to help with fuel……there are many other more pressing needs.
Now we have only to look-out for the first Christmas tree in a window!
