Barry’s seasonal work
Every December, Barry’s self-imposed task is to replace the batteries in the Christmas lights.
No matter how many rechargeable batteries we have, there never seem to be sufficient. This may be on account of my desire/need/compulsion to add ever more light arrays.
If there should happen to be a power cut, we would still be able to find our way around, thanks to the blazing LED-powered candles and other light-emitting devices.
Of course, if the power were to be off for more than 24 hours, we would be in dire straits, because of an inability to recharge said batteries. We would then have to resort to wax candles and torches, always supposing we could remember which ‘safe place’ we had stored them in.
