thought i could resist the lure of the fairy lights, but it's getting darker earlier and earlier lately and goddamnit it's my birthday grin

anyone know where i could pick up battery/solar lights today (off tomorrow so no time for post)? we've got most chain stores around here, have searched what i think of as most obvious places, found some possibles in b&q and argos but both are coloured/colour changing and i really want just plain white.

Could you try a garden centre?

Sainsbury's? Picked up some solar fairy lights there earlier in the year.

Maplin do white solar ones, I think they are £30

The ones I got were white, btw.

ooh sainsbos is worth a shot, thought about garden centres but our local one is a chain and they don't have any fairy lights listed on their website. quite poss they'd still have some but want to avoid wild goose chase if poss as i still have all the packing to do today (although from now on i will have my box of essentials all ready to go...)

hah no i draw the line at don't have room for bunting wink

a question about solar lights - will they only turn on when they think it's dark enough or can you tell the when to turn on?

my solar lights only turn on when it gets dark!... but when ut's just getting dim, i've turned the solar panel face down... and voila!lights!

my birthday too! today! happy birthday!
