The Manky Lampshade Competition

Posted on: 28/10/2011

What’s that saying about cobbler’s shoes?

If you’ve got a lampshade like this (yup – it’s mine) at home, enter my competition and you could win a truly gorgeous shade worth £95.

You’d think my house would be full of gorgeous lampshades, no? I wish it were! When we moved into our brand new house nearly 4 years ago we had T, who was 2, and R, who was just 4 months old. After getting the house sorted, we had to get a load of new lampshades (new builds have loads of light fittings and I detest bare bulbs). Suffering from severe sleep deprivation and running on nerves, we cowered like startled deers in the extremely bright lighting department of John Lewis. After trying to feed T a Tampax (it did look very similar to a fruit bar), we had to get out of there pretty quick smart so I asked the assistant to give me anything… anything at all. And so we got beige! Here’s that beige shade now. Still there. In the hall. Gathering gunk and dust around the inner rim. Looking manky. There’s no excuse.

Same in our household – hardly a lampshade, just to busy to complete lampshades for the clients!
