Yesterday we replaced some lightbulbs, so our world is a little brighter now. We went up to Asda to pick up a few bits and pieces we needed (including the lightbulbs.) We also washed some more walls and ceilings, and I even had another go at the kitchen floor which is definitely looking better than it was. Ian's cousin Alison came round for tea last night, I was a bit worried about how it would go, because she used to come here all the time when Marjorie was here, and this was the first time she had been round since February, but all seemed to go well and it was an enjoyable evening. Today Christopher is going on a geography field trip to look at the coastline, but otherwise I think it will be a quiet day. Tomorrow we have an informal parents at Birkenhead, so that willbe fun!

Well it sure helps, today is rather dismal weather wise, and it doesn't seem to have got light properly. With Winter on its way this is going to get worse before it gets better! Real winter weather will be here soon, when you no longer need an excuse to curl up with a good book and a warm drink, because it's the only sensible thing to do! Yay!!

mrs health and safety here making sure you haven't put light bulbs in that are too much for the rating of the light shade.

Re: watts
Thank you for your concern! We have replaced the bulb in the bathroom, which diappointingly hadn't lasted long, and followed Andrew's recommendation to knock the house power off before we did it.
One of the wall lights in the living room had failed and we have replaced it with an appropriate 60w candle, which is safer than what was there before.
We bought one replacement for Chris's room, a 30w tube which I thought was fluorescent bu turns out to be incandescent. Now we know it's the right one, we can buy three more of them for him.
While we were doing more work in the garage, I also discovered that the light in there works, something I realised I hadn't actually tried before.
As for coffee, ask Viv.
