Lighting our lives, the supplement

Lighting our lives or boring the pants off Victor.

Should one of our lamps fail, and as Craig suggests they always do at the wrong time, then we have spares, in many shapes, sizes, wattages, bayonet, screw, frosted, clear, incandescent,  fluoro and halogen. I promise, no more about our personal lights for a few years.

    1. A bit like that for us too Diane. R's toilet lamp has blown and I have to go to the shops tomorrow to get the right replacement, a fluoro 7w screw bulb.

  4. I used to keep that many spares and not just globes, but now I don't bother, I have a half a dozen, all the same. All my fittings are bayonet so that makes it a bit easier.

    1. River, I suspect there are some globes there that will never get used, maybe they were for old lights. But you can be sure if throw some out, one would have been exactly what was needed.

    1. Fen, while I think of it, I managed to fritz our first remote power board and we had to buy another. My fault. I plugged four lamps into a power board and the the power board into one socket of the remote power board. It worked ok for a while, with only one button to push to switch four lamps on, but eventually it cooked.

    2. Ha ha well that's something I won't ever try then. Those remote boards aren't cheap!
