    added to my cv ... fitted a loft hatch and loft ladder... had to extend the hatch hole, so cutting through joists and re-enforcing them afterwards. loft ladder was easy tbh.

    Save our Christmas Songs

    well im struggling to think of any (pop) crimbo songs that arent shallow, schmaltzy drivel . (ftony the exception) . and tbh, i think its apt for such an enforced 'season of fun'. oh dear...i really feel for you having those inflicted upon you. "enforced enjoyment" ... we play those song, you are now allowed to celebrate crimbo, arent you happy now?...

    oh...and i bet those who are taking offence and playing the 'racist' card arent ethnic people, but white 'libtards' virtue signalling 'on others behalf'.

    Save our Christmas Songs

    im sick to the back teeth of most crimbo songs... "fairytale of new york" not only ISNT a crimbo song, its become a cliche, along with slade, wizzard, mariah, wham, etc. imho the biggest crime is that the snowflake generation havnt got the gumption, talent, creativity, to compose NEW crimbo songs. most of the crimbo songs we hear come from a 22 year period....'73 - 95. and its the annual reeling out of these 'classics' that has made them overplayed and has now destroyed their personal nostalgic value. addressing the original post... is there actually any evidence that those songs are being targeted by snowflakes? or is it just a couple of opinions?

    How fussy are you with your Christmas tree?

    when i were a lad...lol.. back in the 60's we used to decorate the 'best' room with garlands, the living room was decorated by us kids who made paper chains out of those coloured, gummed, strips of paper.

    do you get 'that' scent with nords?.. they are very attractive trees but i couldnt detect 'that' scent you get off norway spruce. as for the needles... yeah its a pain but can be avoided. buy your tree early, get it as fresh as you can... score the base by the bark exposing the cambium, stick it in a bucket and water it!. that does delay needle drop.

    How fussy are you with your Christmas tree?

    very... although i dont do crimbo, or try not to, my o/h does and insists on a tree. i like trees so ok... mine HAS to be norway spruce, picea abies, because thats what we always had when i was a kid (and liked crimbo) and thats the variety that gives off 'that' pungent scent, the smell of crimbo. im really fussy about the shape too, broad and bushy but not too bushy. i use the decorations ive used since i was a kid, and some bought over the years. i inherited my grandmas decorations after she died too. old decorations that have witnessed many happy crimbos. they are a variety of colours though so not co-ordinated.

    it took me nearly a decade. 'doing up' my house was something i did over the winter period when work was slack , so i lived in a mess for quite a time. but i cleared up by spring so the summer period wasnt bad. i tended to do a room at a time. i replastered because its old, i dry lined the outer walls to add insulation to my single skim walls. being willing to 'do it myself' and working alone self employed possibly added to the reasons why i voted the way i did in 2016...

    im not really crafty, but i can turn my hand to most practical things if that counts? lol. i built my kitchen myself, plus other sideboards/storage/wardobes . ive learned basic electrical skills, plastering, plumbing, and sorted several structural problems with my old house. id sooner do it myself then employ someone.

    my advice, especially if youre not a dancer (like me), is to get yourself alone in a darkish room where you can be undisturbed. just sit back, close your eyes, play it pretty loud - volume enhances the euphoric feeling , the shiver down your spine, trance gives you. the point about trance is that you dont need chemical stimulation to get high... the tones of the music does that.
