    Cheers Nige - I might also be sneaking in an illuminated Santa into the equation - pushing it with 9 fairies and one Santa?

    Don’t forget to use the bottom of the plug, as well as the top!

    As much as I have nigh on embraced led lighting in general - it can never emulate tungsten and candle light..imagine the picture below with led lighting, it just would not work.
