    I was sat last night watching telly when I heard a fizzing noise then a crackling noise! Then saw the Christmas tree lights smoking! :shock:
    I'm so glad I hadn't gone out and left them on as I have done before! My memory is rubbish! :oops:

    Now I will have to take everything off the tree and start again as the lights are under all the other crap I've put on top! I shouldn't complain though it could have been much worse! :shock:

    Everyone don't forget to switch your lights off when you go out! But then I'm sure you don't need reminding not everyone's as dizzy as me! :oops: :rotfl:
