Darkness all around

So here I sit, in the dark. As usual. No really, this time it's because Jr Her's bedroom light broke and needs to be replaced.

The issue is, the way this old house is wired, is that the lights are piggybacked sort of. That is, the lounge light is connected to the hall, which is connected to Jr Her's, which then goes to the bathroom etc etc. So, from her light onward is in darkness.

Ever tried to put make up on in the dark? Interesting...This office is now only lit by the computer and running lights of the printer, battery charger, external hard drive...you know, all that stuff.

The landlord came over today to have a look and he is supposed to be getting an electrician in tomorrow because Him is off work for the day. Guess we'll see what happens hey.

We have been having an interesting spending spree lately. Aside from Jr Her's new light, a fluro at that, she scored some much needed winter clothes, new shoes compliments of her birthday money, and today she scored a new TV in her room. Well, the one from the kitchen is in her room with the DVD/Video combo player. That's because she cleaned her room without being told today.

We bought ourselves a new digital camera though. It is a Pentax and was only $129 for an 8.1 mega pixel we thought was okay. We also bought, (God bless interest free!) a new (but vastly inferior to our old) home theater system, as the other just didn't work properly anymore. And a HD set top box. Now, hopefully, that's the last of it. But hey, when Him decides he wants something, who am I to tell him he can't spend his own money, that he works six days a week to earn? Wouldn't dream of it.

Oh, and I have uploaded a couple of photos of the reception, just for something to look at....
