Lighting: always a tricky issue in a house. I don't think we've got it right at all, but I've finally got a rise-and-fall light installed over the kitchen table. We'd had the same low hanging shade for years, and it always seemed to be in the way, shining in our eyes, or hitting us on the head, and it was driving me crazy when I was sewing. We were well overdue in getting an adjustable one. This is the Brigitta light from John Lewis, in cream metal with a simple fabric cord. It has a pulley at the top, so you can adjust the height to suit the task: eating, sewing, homework etc.
I've been cutting back in the garden and I rescued these buds, hoping they might open in the warmth. I quite like them as they are though.
Have a great weekend.
