Lady Sparky!

I am so impressed with myself today!

We have a light socket that broke a few months back. It’s one of the main lights in our bedroom.

I’ve been reading and writing in semi darkness since then… there was a new lamp holder needed. Wires and everything to be reset… it needed an electrician! No way we could sort it out!

Then I found a spare new holder at my in-laws, and my father-in-law was ready to sort it out for us, 2 months back… but he forgot!

I reminded him yesterday and he took apart a light holder at their house to see how simple it was, reassuring me that he could do it.

So I figured if he could do it, so could I! 

This evening I switched the leccy off at the mains, grabbed my stepladder and managed to change it, wiring and all, by myself!

Now I have light again!

Seriously, I’m so chuffed with myself! Not one electrocution episode either! 

Go me! 

Any tasks you have dreaded doing, only to astound yourself later,by doing them?

    😀 cool beans ^^

    lately been looking for a new apartment (daughter can’t visit me where I presently am); the hardest part was calling that first broker and being all ‘business-like’ 😛 but it’s easier knowing why
