Once I had got Joseph into school (made it on time by the skin of our teeth), I ran home (well almost - I did walk fast) and opened the aforementioned gleaming box of delights.
I wanted to share with you the excitement of opening the box, complete with shredded bills within. Can you guess what it is yet? I think the writing on the box gives it away!
Yes, I decided to hell with it - I'm just going to get a new lamp. I bought it online on Tuesday and yesterday it came - quick eh? Now, if a lap can be gorgeous, then it's the most gorgeous lamp you have ever seen. It emits daylight and everything. And is fully adjustable, as every angle poise lamp should be. I want for nothing. Well maybe a large vanilla slice, but you can't have it all.
Thank you to everyone who kept an eye out for a lamp for me, including Emma, who even did a little search ! You're so kind. Blogging friends are just the bestest!
Love, Clare x
