I usually wait until December to put up my tree but decided to take advantage of my open day today. I am trying to be very self-sufficient so was proud that I got the tree into the house and set up all by myself.
Then came that moment when you plug in the lights and hope they all work --- didn't happen. Only the bottom half lit up. After "messing with it" for a while, I got exasperated and called my handy-man. He came over and it was fixed within 30 seconds!
The problem? The tree topper plugs into one of the light sockets and I hadn't pushed it in hard enough!
OK, so the tree lights are ALL on and it's ready to decorate mañana!
