 Good morning dear Blogger friends. Friday is generally my day off. This morning I was up at 4 and started to clear out my wardrobe: changing from summer dresses and shorts to winter tops and jackets. 

I also did all the household cleaning as when Thandi arrived at 7.30, I wanted her to start ironing, which she has done. We have plenty of linen to be ironed and she is the expert! 

While I was cleaning the bath and basin, I looked up and saw that my light fitting was very grubby. It was full of dead bugs and dust. Knowing that once I pulled the stepladder to under the light, I would need a star screwdriver to remove the plastic fitting and wondered where I could start looking for the lone screwdriver that I knew I had - somewhere! 


 I remembered a natty ladies' toolbox that I had bought way back in 2006. Now, 16 years later I had use for it. LOL! 

My ladies toolbox 

The gap above the jewelers screwdrivers, has the caption: electric tape. Someone, over the years obviously removed this item. Other than that, my toolbox is in pristine condition, showing the lack of maintenance work I do in and around the house! 
A photo of the exposed light which I will use as a guide to the electrical shop in town and buy a spare
Maintenance manager extraordinaire! 

Now, midmorning, I'm enjoying a cuppa while writing my blog post!

I trust you are all having a great Friday.
