Oops, it was yesterday evening, 23rd March. So I need to talk to everyone at home and see if they are up for our own Earth Hour sometime this week.
When I lived in a small studio in Paris I was very money conscious, ie I had nearly none. I made sure that only 1 or 2 light bulbs were on at one time, maximum. Now I can look around me in this kitchen and see 8 burning away. 2 sets of 3 spot lights plus 2 single brighter lamps.
Even with all these lights it seems difficult to see properly at the table sometimes. We did a jigsaw a couple of nights ago and I was really peering at the pieces to see them.
