conned the wife

Recommended Posts

decided that using my torch with red toffee paper on the end was a PITA, so had a brainwave.

the outside night light! (240v 12w).

so when she was out, got her red nail polish and painted the bulb.

it looks fantastic.

i told her the bulb had gone and all i had left in the shed was an old red one from an electric fire.

You know, in the old days houses with a red light outside the door signified... well, I think you can work it out.

Now all fun aside...

I have long used a coloured bulbs on all my outside lights. I didn't do it for astronomical observation but rather to reduce the number of bugs flying about the doors near the lights. Nothing is more annoying than opening that door and having sixty gigazillion bugs fly in.
