There's was a party atmosphere at my house
the other day with my teenagers .
The reason was that Mums tacky lamp
had finally broken and had to go !
If you know teenagers you can just picture
the eye rolling when I needed to use my lamp
and to make it just a little more interesting I
would always say "hello pretty birdies"
as I turned it on .
This was guaranteed
that I would get an eye roll and sometimes
the bonus prize for me was the big huff
as they left the room sooooo embarrassed of their mother !
Well I fixed those kids of mine .
I cut the cord off and took out the light fitting
so I still have my tacky but very pretty little birdies .
