We don't spend a lot at Christmas, have a artificial tree that is about 20years old and all the decs to go on it. That's the only decoration we have. Don't have to buy presents. Only food is the turkey all the trimmings, gateaux, homemade mince pies, homemade christmas cake and pudding. 2 bottles of sparkling wine to go with the dinner and pudding. Usually have a Australian brand but it's getting more difficult to get it. @Fat Controller hope you can get someone to go into the loft for you, maybe a neighbour.
