Let There Be Light

Have you noticed that when you take away all the twinkle lights you decorated with for Christmas the house seems especially dark and gloomy?

It doesn't help when 9 (NINE!) light bulbs simultaneously burn out.

Or that we've been socked in under a cloud of fog, then rain and now snow since forever.

So I went to Ikea and bought 5 lamps and a whole bunch of 100 watt light bulbs.

My living room? Is now obscenely bright and cheery; the exact opposite of dark and cozy. And the downside of that? Every speck of dust is brilliantly illuminated.

But if I wear sunglasses it's not as obvious.

We have 4 lights that need replacing in the living room. However, because this is Germany, you must have a special instrument to take the fixture off. Yes, you need more than 1 person to unscrew a light bulb here.
