If you could see my parents home at Christmas time you would understand why. I am not talking about "Griswald family style" ugly tacky fairy lights, I am talking about the white twinkly fairy lights that make you smile. Others may disagree but I believe, as does my passionate fairy light loving mother, that fairy lights should be out all year around. Why should a room just be pretty and twinkly at Christmas time?
Even as I write this post my fairy lights are on, twinkling above my kitchen sink, beckoning me to do the dishes - urgh. Admittedly this does not make me smile but that's beside the point people! :)

So mock me if you will, but put up some white fairy lights for your next dinner party or even better, in a tree in your garden and see what happens. Even the most dreary of character will be guaranteed to smile approvingly. If they don't, they should leave your house immediately- I am not joking, out the door! Chances are they don't approve of gorgeous tea light candles or second helpings of dessert either ;)
And so ends my first week of blogging :)
Have a great weekend.
