A miracle?

The thing that gets screwed ont o alight fitting to hold the lampshade cracked.

I rooted about in my shed and mandrawer as I thought I must have saved a similar item as 'you never know when it may be useful'.

Sadly This failed.

I trotted off to my local B&Q expecting to have to buy the whole unit, but there it was, with one of thaose angelic glows coming from behind it giving it that angelic glow (then I remembered I was in the lighting section) - a 'short lampholder skirt' for 78p.

Other than my local ironmongers which is an awesome place - overheard ' do you have any mole traps',  'yes, which sort would you like?' - I can't recall the last time that I was able to by a component part instead of the whole unit, and neither did I have to buy a multipack of it.

Who'd have thought that it would be called a short lampholder skirt?  Sounds like the latest fashion or something.


Beat that someone!

AsI wrote this I wondered why I hadn't gone to the ironmongers in the first place...
