This is so interesting AND challenging because I kid you not We HAVE A HOUSE LIKE THAT IN OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD TOO!
How can that be??
I thought a bit about this, and decided that is was about different notions of space.
In my fave new book Spatializing ltieracy research (so so good buy it now) it talks about discourse communities across local frontiers.
This is one such.
It is a discourse community that spans regional frontiers, that of Christmas.
it is a set of visual signs which join across the diasporas in which we live.
This links to the subject of my new edited book, which is Crossings, local and global and multimodality.(from the local to the Global ed. Pahl and Rowsell Multilingual Matters 2005).
The new research tools we must use all link to this.

Yes, I agree that is what all these athings are about. Since I blogged this photo, I have had feedback from lots of people, expressing consternation that a house near them is like it too.
The people who live opposite my blogged house have complained to the council!
There is lots to be said on it I think.

OK, that's my house there and I hear the voices, 'Come on out quietly, we've got you blogged!'. It's just like a wash-off tatoo: it's not really skinart, permanent make-up or tongue-piercing - but you should see next door's plan for an extension, that's like major surgery!

I think it's really great. Your road is normally so drab. If I had the time...I'm sure Jax wouldn't mind if it happened here.
