Amidst th'encircling gloom

I'm so fed up with living in a perpetual cloud here and needing lights on all day, that I've put up my dresser lights to cheer things up. As you see, I haven't the knack of photographing this sort of thing but they look jolly. And they cost me 50p at the market last year!

Lovely.
Going to put my "all year snowflakes" on now
Thank you and good plan. Hope it cheers you up, too!
Bah indeed! These vintage ones seem fine. I have another vintage lot, picked up old but unused at the market, which I'll save for Christmas. I know lots of people have lights up all year; don't know why I'm so puritanical about it.
Ha ha!

I feel sentimental about that. Strange.
So pretty and cheering, what a good idea - I like the extra sparkle it gives to the china. I know I've got a set stashed away somewhere...
Go for it! Must draw the curtains now...
They are lovely!
Certainly cheered me up, anyway.
Good! How to spread cheer; I must remember.
Ooooh pretty. I love fairy lights.
Can't beat 'em. I remember when we got our first ones (they were huge in those days) and how magical they seemed.
Very pretty!

It's so gloomy outside, I am tempted to put the Christmas lights out early.
We need light!

Lovely - very Nigella!
Ha ha! Of course, today we have brilliant sunshine.
Pretty. Sometimes we need all the little things we can get...
Absolutely! You always make your flat look so nice.
