Christmas tree?


This is the set of spanners that Keith bought to use on the Camaro when he's working on it. Since he bought it, whenever it has not been in use, it has been sitting on the dining table, together with an assortment of other tools, sprays and tubes of noxious materials. However, Keith has great plans for these spanners. He has decided that, next Christmas, they would make a wonderful Christmas tree table decoration, once they have a few bits of tinsel thrown artistically over them. Considering that this is the man who, before I met him had a 7 inch 'Christmas tree' consisting of a few wires with lights on them and a 'Christmas wreath' nailed to the wall which remained up till the following year, I consider this to be probably one of his more reasonable ideas.
But that still won't stop me putting my foot down with a firm hand when next Christmas arrives.
