Life Without the Lights – 12 January 2010





I said in yesterday’s blog that over the course of this evening, the lights would come down – piece by piece, wire by wire. They are being taken off the walls of the stairway where they have lived for the last month and a half, and are moving into a temporary home in Matthew’s empty room while he is at uni. From then, they’ll be packed away properly in the room later this week.


To show you what is left at 11:00pm this evening, I took a few photos of the destruction.

But, now that the lights are down, the video of this year’s show is up on the internet. I mentioned yesterday that I have had to split the entire video in half, in order to fit it on YouTube. Watch the two halfs here on WordPress or at See? I spoil you for choice…
