I want to put beautiful twinkly lights on the trees on my front lawn. DH has finally agreed - took 3 years of puppy dog eyes

However, am now wondering how to power said lights? Or am I being thick? There is no scope for feeding cables under front door etc. So how do you do it?

We post a cable through the letter box but use a special fused box to plug them into on the outside - available at B&Q and other DIY shops

Thanks Eaglewings. Do you not get a horrendous draft through the letter box though?

we do get some draft but are lucky and have a small inner hall that contains the 'wind'.

I have in another house put a piece of material over the letter box on the inside which helps

Thanks again. Idea of fabric over letterbox could definitely work. Saw the outdoor plug set up in Homebase today for around 5 quid.

Am v excited about prospect now!
