These photos are slightly grainy and irritating as none of the cameras around the house seem to have the capability to take a decent photograph of fairy lights in the dark. Not even the SLR ! You know it's desperate when your phone is taking better photos than the rest of the devices put together. This year is the third year I've brought the 'travelling tinsel' into school and the second year that these fairy lights have joined the adventures. I haven't got any proper photographs of their travels yet, since there is really no appropriate time to take decent photographs in Fifth Year and it has got to the stage that my friends threaten to go inside when I wrap the tinsel and fairy lights around the railings outside at lunch ! Shocking ! In saying that, I still hang around with the one friend who always insists on wearing the combination, which is all fun and games until she also insists on spreading it out around her table. In music class. With the lights left on. I sh*t you not. This then turned into forty minutes of me wanting to bury my head in the table. We are yet to be told to switch them off. Most probably because if you exclude the secretaries' office and a few classes, our school's idea of Christmas decoration only extends to a big crib in reception and a large light-up metal tree in the quad that always gets knocked over in the wind and a sphere metal light-up figure, which we all refer to as 'the onion'. On occasion, one may be kind enough to compare it to Cinderella's carriage.
So that is tonight's slightly festive post.
Have you decorated your room for the holidays yet ?
