Adventures In Lighting

So, remember how the light in my flat burned out?

Yeah, that was 29 days ago.

It took me that long to fix it. I know.

It's because it's impossible to reach the light from any of the stepladder/accessable furniture combinations that I could come across. Other than dragging my chest of drawers into the middle of the room, which I wasn't keen on doing as it's covered in loads of crap, and I couldn't be bothered to move it.

What's a girl to do?

Well, thankfully a girl got a new fabulous dressing table delivered from eBay, so she could get rid of her old desk, but thankfully she hadn't gotten rid of the desk top and, as if by magic...

It's the world's least safe climbing device! Especially when you're standing on the top rung, and you realize that you have to reach behind you to get the lightbulb, and it seems a bit wobbly for a minute.

But, just when you think all is lost...

Ta da!

Isn't it pretty? I'm liking this whole lighted flat thing. I think it might catch on.

Oh my gosh!

You could have broken your neck!

Isn't there anyone you could have called on who has a ladder?

Even if you had to pay $20 dollars to have a handy man come and put a light bulb in, it would have been better than maybe ending up in the hospital.

Sorry the Mommy in me came out.

Well thank God! At least you didn't fall. Let's hope this light bulb last a long long time!

How ingenious, love your climbing device. Perhaps we can enter it in the extreme (as in how extreme is your attachment to your limbs) sports show. Desperation leads to boldness and turns that girl into a daredevil.
