Ignoring fire safety for fun and profit

I’m arranging, improving, and organising the mini-office. I’ve taken massive wattage light bulbs out of nearly every fixture in the flat and replaced them with enviro-nice low-energy bulbs. The mini-office is getting a lovely rice paper globe shade and as I was taking down the existing, plain shade, I noticed a little tag inside it that states:

MAX 60 WATTS

The landlady had in a 150 watt uber-bulb! Goodness knows if she typically used such mega bulbs, or if she was just over-illuminating the property in order to tempt potential residents. ‘My what a bright and cheerful place…’
Dunno, but I feel a tiny bit safer now. 🙂
