    I keep finding firework debris in the garden. A rocket fell right between the greenhouses and there's bits of plastic and chemical soaked cardboard all over the place. I still haven't properly fixed the broken pane in the greenhouse roof after a rocket broke it a few years ago. It's not helping my generally bad Monday mood after getting very little sleep last night :| At least the rocket had a good plant support stick attached to it. Every cloud...

    There's a house near us which didn't take the lights down after last xmas. Mercifully they've not switched them on for a while .

    I hate how anyone not complying with a social convention is seen as miserly. Not wasting my money decorating anyting with sparkly plastic tat.
    I'm pretty sure plenty of folk celebrate Diwali, and Eid, and Yom Kippur and all sorts of other stuff. I don't get involved with any of them, nor christmas either
