Just did my first mains electrics today!

Just did my first mains electrics today! OK it was only removing a broken light fitting (yes of course it was me that broke it), but it involved actual screwdriver against 240v mains cableage. Turned the power off to do it, had to really as the only screwdriver the right size that I had was the leatherman I got as a gift for being Andy's best man1. All metal, no insulation, HARDCORE!

BACK from IKEA, in one piece, only light arguing. Bought soft furnishings as planned and a few bits and pieces unplanned, of course. Total bill 150, could have been a lot worse.

Out to Escondido tonight, should be good. Mexican though, we're sure to be the only people in there...
