I have been asked about the Ott-lite. When I ordered from the USA I thought it would be relatively easy to get an adaptor that would plug in here and then allow me to plug the US fitting into that. How wrong I was. I can get ones for plugging into the US system - even Asda (Wallmart) sell them but they are for UK people who will be wanting to use them while they are on holiday in the US. What do US citizens do if they come here on holiday???? May be I would get them in the tourist areas like London, Stratford etc but Long Eaton has obviously never had a visiting American lol. So my US Ott-lite is still sitting in its little box waiting for an adaptor. However as I was really quite upset about not being able to find an adaptor my DH decided that I should have ordered from the UK in the first place and went ahead and ordered one. Actually the one he ordered is brilliant it has a flexible neck (same as on the magnifier) where as the one from the US is more ridgid. I am not sure what I will do yet, if I can find an adaptor I may well keep the other too as it is a lot lighter and would be ideal for taking with me when I travel. So my great saving didnt turn out as I hoped.
This week I have been awarded two . One was awarded by Tammie and one from Elisa.
I am supposed to award 5 people and here are the 5 I have chosen.
Erica - at Bits of My Own
Brigitte - At Brigittes Place
Chiloe - Chiloe's Corner
Cyn - at Cyn Stitches
Lisa - Lisa's Stitching Addiction
I do not think there will be much stitching done for the next few weeks as school broke up today and Oz will be staying with Granny & Grandpa on and off for most of the holidays. He will be arriving shortly so I am now off to get ready for his arrival.
may your frogs stay in their ponds (and may mine stay there too)
