The stupidest idea I’ve ever come up with :-)
Why not have a light net in the lilacs this winter, that would look nice. I really wish my brain could stop me when I try to think myself 🙂 As we all know this has costed a small fortune and to make it look less strange than it does I think I need to spend another fortune on light cords 🙂 🙂 But I have finally put it all up and the lights shine brightly in the rain 🙂
But naturally nothing comes easy and this was no exception. It started when I was going to connect the extension cable with the one I already have thrown up in the lilacs. It didn’t fit! It was just impossible to put them together and I know I have bought the right thing! It showed that those two small metal things that is supposed to go in to those holes in the other socket pointed in very strange directions. So I had to go inside and try to find a small enough pliers so I could correct that.
The wind was icy so it wasn’t easy to move my fingers after a while. Finally I could put them together and then I’m supposed to screw on a lid that is attached to one of the contacts. Impossible!!!! They have made it to small so the only thing I did was to damage the screw threads. So finally I gave up and taped lots of plastic around the sockets so that no water can get in to the electricity and I placed that package high up in the lilacs.
Then I only 🙂 have to place it up in the lilacs. Only a very thin and light person can place a ladder towards lilacs and not fall in to the damn thing so I just tossed it up as far as I could, guess if I was surprised when that actually worked 🙂 🙂 🙂 It looked really nice when I was finished, but I didn’t count on the strong wind turning. The lights in the top still sits where I’ve tossed them but the wind sort of re-arranged much of the rest 🙂 🙂 Can You see how the lights sort of shows a duckling 🙂 🙂 The beak points towards the cottage 🙂 🙂 🙂
I can tell You that I won’t touch those lights again until it is time to take them down 🙂 If the wind want my lights to look like a duckling who am I to disagree 🙂 🙂
Have a great day!
