    Oh no

    Is that a dishwasher, or if not how did the washing machine break a dish? :confused:
    It broke a dish in the cupboard next to it. The bodger also did the kitchen and my dad put things in the cupboard, not stacked very well, mainly big things on top and small on the bottom. :s

    Also, palindrome.

    Not very good idea, that. Usually, smaller items should be on the top and larger ones in the bottom. Like a pyramid.

    Oh dear, that bodger really is/was a bodger!!! :eek:

    I know, my dad isn't very good at organisation.

    I know, though it is fun discovering things, such as the extension being a few inches lower than the rest of the house so you have a step between it and the original house. :eek:

    I know, he really was. But we will end up with a normal house at some point.

    That's good. At least you can say that the house if different, and unique.

    We need to upgrade the lighting in the attic - those twisty looking bulbs really don't give off much light do they? :rolleyes:

    Plus, we'd be able to count from -1672 to -1,000,000 faster than the time taken for a nasty twisty lightbulb to reach full brightness.

    I know we can, and it is a nice house which is good.

    I know they don't have one in my room, though if you leave them on they do give a decent amount. :rolleyes:

    I disagree (see above)

    The only time the twisty bulbs are any good is if you leave them on for ages, and don't have a dimmer

    1)They take far too long to turn on
    2) Most of them are not dimmer compatible
    3) Turning them on/off dramatically shorten their lifespan
    4) Equivalent wattages stated on the box aren't really true - especially for the older styled twisty bulbs. For an example, a 11 or 12W twisty does NOT equal a 60W standard bulb (you're closer to a 40W bulb)
    5) These (twisty) bulbs contain mercury!!! If the glass is broken, the mercury is able to escape into the room.... not good!

    This is the guide for if one of the twisty bulbs (technical name = Compact Fluorescent or CFL) was to break:

    You also have to take them to the recycling centre to dispose of them at the end of life - they can't be thrown out as you'll then end up putting the mercury into landfill!

    I think it a newer one, but I didn't know about the mercury. I think I might try and pinch one of the nice lights we have and put it up.

    May have to turn the electrics off first though.
