Lit up like Blackpool Illuminations!

June 20, 2013

We often get comments about the house being gloomy. I’ll be honest, it’s a pet hate of mine, as I actually don’t feel the house is particularly dark. It’s got skylights all over the place. Anyway, that rant is for another day!

Anyone who did feel the house could be brighter has gotten their wish. Paul, the House Manager and Andrew, the Conservation Officer, have gone round the whole house replacing all the bulbs with the most up to date LED ones. Previously we could only use half the lights, as energy costs were sky-high, and they weren’t the brightest bulbs anyway.Now every bulb is lit and the new bulbs are a revelation in illumination. And to boot, even with every bulb lit, we’ll still be saving energy. That’s what’s known as a win-win situation.

Paul changing the bulbs in the Drawing Room. Of course, if your Paul, you call them lamps not bulbs!

The only worry now is that visitors will be able to see the dust! Of course we are very conscientious house keepers here, but we are only 3 and can’t get everywhere every day. Hopefully they’ll understand.
