It all started yesterday when I decided I would buy me a new swish lamp for my room. My energysaver daylight lamp (bulb) which cost me £10(!) had blown after only 2 months of use, so me not a happy chuckle. I have had this happen before, so even though David had tested the lamp by sticking two prongs (commonly known by electrical engineers as a multi meter) into the lamp with it plugged into the mains (whilst I stood by covering my eyes, waiting for David to do his" Oh, dear, I'm having a pretend electric shop judder"), and it was okay - are you still following this? I couldn't pass up the opportunity of spending money with the ligitimate excuse of it being for the 'greater good of the business'.
Anyway, I managed to get a couple of normal bayonet daylight bulbs, but could I find a normal lamp that would take a 60 watt bayonet bulb anywhere - no I couldn't! Everyone I came across were with halogen or screw in ...screw in - excuse me, but when did we get transported to the 19th Century? And believe me, I tried Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Next, Wickes, B & Q, Argos and T K Maxx and probably some more I can't remember and no luck. I came home downhearted, and then remembered that the daylight bulbs that I'd bought were no good as my lamp was a screw fitting too! Aaaarrrrggghhh. So please, this is an appeal if anyone knows of anywhere I can get an angle poise style lamp which will take a 60 watt bayonet bulb, I will kiss you forever!
