Charlie took this one.
This is a Barbie Christmas tree that her childminder gave her last year. S’s son works and Woolworths and gets hold of all manner of discount toys and tat. Charlie decided yesterday that it was time to extract the tree from the deepest recesses of the glory hole and set it up.
As you can see,it’s pink, feathery, and comes with its own set of flashing lights (the batteries are recharging) and pink glittery baubles. She stole the tinsel from the real tree.
Still no news about the house up the road. There is still a 24 hour police watch on both front and back doors, and the flat is still sealed off.
