Gone are the days of just popping to the pound shop when your light bulb goes and having to remember whether it was a bayonet or screw fitting.  Oh no, there is so much more to buying a lightbulb nowadays.  We have all become more energy aware and light bulbs are now designed to last […]

Getting Hygge

As the last of the summer sun shines have you reached that point in the year where you are psychologically and physically preparing yourself for the autumn and winter months ahead?  Then it’s time to get hygge!
