Wanting to get some photos of the last of the Christmas lights I set out with my minder (David - who was worried that someone might mug me for my camera. Note the concern was for the camera, not the person being mugged...!). This tree is decorated in Burbage every year, and just before Christmas they have a carol concert around it. The lights on it have lovely colours, but because I'm perverse, and also on something of a monotone kick right now, I prefer the black and white.

We then did a quick detour via Hinckley so I could get some pictures of the High Street at night. you can tell hideous sixties architecture at a glance can't you? Do you see that second row of lights across the road? Well that building on the left is where I work. It was originally a house and used to be owned by a nineteenth century author called Charlotte Brame who was apparently the Barbara Cartland of her day. Trivial fact of the day!
