Contrarily it is the very dark nights over the past week that have shown up just how dangerous it is outside my front door. I do already have a movement sensitive light on the corner of the bungalow and that shows up the path to the front door. What I need now is a light on the wall by the door itself which I can switch on to order either when someone rings the doorbell or when someone is about to leave the house. It does not need to be movement sensitive. What it needs to do is to show up the dangers of the step down on to the path itself.
When the electrician came to assess the work he told me that the wiring in the bungalow is really unsatisfactory. I can't explain why = it is all too complicated but it has resulted in my asking him to check it all over, replace the fuse box and do anything necessary. Another job needing to be done. Each time I start a job I find that more needs to be done. Hopefully it will be done before Christmas.
Just for fleeting moments today the sun came out
and each time the mist miraculously melted away. What a difference the sun makes. It was suddenly brighter and warmer. Then it all went again.
Is anyone else in the UK watching 'Inside the Foreign Office'? I am and am finding it interesting but I can't help wondering whether it is really possible to make such a programme without the characters acting rather than being their real selves when put in front of a camera. Some of the remarks they make don't altogether ring true to me. Maybe I am too cynical. If you are watching it what do you think to it?
