Weekly Blog No 103 – Cancer Update/Lighting

When I’m having a good day, I will try to be very productive. My level of productivity is nothing to what it used to be. However I’m very realistic too, therefore I don’t have any expectations in regards completing tasks on a daily or weekly basis. 

Following my appointment with my Oncologist last week, there could be another cancer surgery in the not distant future. This will be my fourth cancer surgery to date. Nevertheless this all depends on an additional scan and surgical meeting. My body had been through enough trauma already. Let’s see what happens. 

I had a Neurology appointment this week due to a recent development of migraines. They only thing that appears to kill the migraines is  either Coke or Pepsi. My Neurologist has prescribed 2 new meds to combat the pain. I have to give it a few months, if that is unsuccessful she has recommended an injection to the head. I would like to avoid that one to be honest. 

In the meantime, house renovations must continue. I’m looking for lighting at the moment and I want to find something unique, compliments the interior and achieves the desired effect. My first port of call is an external light, most properties in the U.K. will have a wall light outside the door. I’m looking for a porch light that hangs down from my open porch ceiling. I want to light up my entrance door and not the street as wall lights seem too. 

Bathroom lighting is my next goal. I want good lighting near the vanity mirror. Excellent lighting for make up application and when Mr Zebrakat is shaving would be beneficial. I will have an appropriate ceiling light as well so that both options can be used.  I’m considering something spectacular for the hall entrance and maybe wall lights over the stairs, like I did in Canada. It is an added feature to the walls that don’t usually accommodate anything.

The kitchen will have a combination of island lights, a suitable lighting fixative over the dining table and downlighters. I did like my lighting arrangement in my Canadian home. I was only using the lighting in the space that I was using. 
In the living room I’m going to remove the existing wall lights and just go with razzmatazz light fitting in the middle of the ceiling. I want to create an ambience of coziness with table lamps rather than a room full of bright lights whilst was tv.

I’m still considering our bedroom and the other rooms lighting options. I don’t want do bobby basic, as I believe lighting does finished a room. In my Canadian home everyone would comment on my lighting as they enter. It’s the smaller things that draw your eye, not necessary the wall colour.  

If anyone can recommend retail stores with amazing lighting please do.

  1. Finding lighting is so hard, have you any reclamation places near you, you could maybe pick up some stuff that can be converted and quite unique. Good luck, and I look forward to seeing the end result.

    In the bathroom we have a big mirror which is surround by LEDs, it is heated and touch sensitive😃 Xx
