Mat: "what are you meant to be reminding me thing morning, Holly?"
Holly: "Lights!'
Mat: "which means?"
Holly: "well, lights!"
Mat (sighing): "which means?"
Holly: " I need new bulbs for my lights"
Mat: "and what do we need to do to GET new bulbs for your lights?"
Holly: "something I don't want to do which is why I didn't mention it"

But of course, girls all LOVE going shopping...

Of course they do. I know Holly (my one) is absolutely thrilled with the idea of going furniture shopping for the new house. She's been looking forward to it for ages...

Heh, complete aside, one of her sets of lights were 'gone' because you guys found a light switch for them I didn't know existed actually on the light fitting instead of the switch outside the room—still need some for the bedside lamps though as I stole that one for mine when it went.

So congrats, you've found a light switch for us and I just changed the bulbs pointlessly ;-)

Ah -- we spent ages looking for a light switch in there, and couldn't find the one outside at all. Sorry about that...

tis us that should be sorry, you forget to do things like "the light switch is here" sometimes with guests, the whole house is setout a bit weird, my room used to be the office, Holly's room the "master bedroom" and there were no doors up there at all, very inconvenient...

No, it's fine -- we've stayed in that room at least a couple of times before, so I'm not sure what the problem was this time...

I did tell him not to mess with those...

Not that I was any better at finding the lights, being blind and all. But being blind also means I was pretty unbothered about finding the lights and was happily getting ready for bed in the dark.

Oh well. At least next time you'll have light bulbs without having to go shopping?

Shoulda thought of that before you grew so tall, then, shouldn't you? It was nowhere near my forehead. :p

I'm a good height, it's just the bedrooms that got small

Hmpf. Apparently DW interprets anything in angle brackets as HTML, even when the text in them says Norma Desmond.

And by "looking forward to" he means "outsourcing it to James who made the mistake of saying he likes this sort of thing without necessarily knowing it'd get him volunteered to come along with me so I don't go crazy and run away and have to sit on the floor forever."

Pfft, everyone knows that light-bulbs are a boy-thing, so only boys like shopping for them.
