    A little candle.
    So Iím still not done and itís just rolled over to Christmas Day.



    The tableís cleared at least. Thatís not normally finished until just before dinner. So thatís a win.
    Really really need to hoover but itís midnight and the hooverís very loud. Donít think the neighbours will be happy with that.
    Iíve finally fixed the candle stick. Well the holder I should say.
