Light fittings

A light fiting

When people sell houses in the Czech Republic, they sell them without light fittings.

I can’t really understand this practice (it’s the opposite in New Zealand). Sure, if you have some chandelier you are especially fond of, then by all means you should take it with you when you move. But everything?!

In our house, (I’ve just walked around and counted) we have 43 light fittings, and that’s not including the two flats.

Actually, it’s not really correct to say that we have 43 light fittings. Now, after six months or so we have quite a few nice light fittings, but still a lot of bare wires sticking out of ceilings and walls.

We’re working on it. . .
