Day 11: And now I’m sticky

I saw Carmen to day earlier tied up in a ball of Xmas lights. I think she’s excited.

Day two of the tree process. I got it stood up and screwed down but after handling that would for so long everything was sticky. Still, after sufficient time had passed I was satisfied that I could make it stand up straight at need.

So on to the lights. I feel if I maintain focus that I will see progress tonight with an estimated completion time of around the 17th. Then it will be on to decorations. Barring any mishaps the tree should be done in 2011…

Still the neighbours threaten to interfere by popping over and “helping”. Stupid neighbours, don’t they understand there is a schedule! And Pete is no help, always whining on about kittens and puppies and tequila…

But no time for that! Back to work… And of course the wine…
