Christmas Lights Progress So Far – 17 December 2010


It’s 02:18am on Friday, 17 December 2010. Tomorrow is our ‘open house’ event where we are throwing open our doors to our neighbours and friends. Dad spent last night in ‘the recording studio’ using ancient AREMBE tech (because all of my gear was lost and what I did have to hand “wasn’t working properly”).

This evening, or last night, or a few hours ago… (I get so confused. I mean 9:00pm on 16 December). Anyway, the final adjustments were made to the computer program, and the control box was sealed. The lights are now ready to go, all we need do now is decorate the house. That’s today’s job.
