Carlo the Electrician sent Warwick the Electrician to the Sow's Ear to fit some lights today.
The Danish teardrop light which I bought last year was finally hung. It is in the room that Son #2 and Son #3 share.
This bedroom is in its un-renovated state. It is always in a state of disarray. Always. And if it is tidy, it only lasts a mere few minutes.
The new light doesn't look fabulous at the moment, but it will. When the room and ceiling are painted in our signature bright white and we re-arrange the decor in the room, it will tie in much better. You must have faith in me.

Below is an image of the old light fitting. The shade was just an el-cheapo white plastic thing which, from my perspective, just highlighted the ugly compact fluro light bulb. At least now, the bulb is hidden from sight.

Warwick also fitted the exterior lights which I ordered on very short notice. I ordered them yesterday afternoon via email and picked them up at 6:30 this morning from the electrical store. Lucky I'm an early riser.
They are just small and simple and the light is ambient. The ceiling is yet to be completed in terms of painting and other finishing off bits, but at least we have light out there in the meantime.
