I wrote 14 papers, plus 2 larger projects and oodles of reading.
Despite the fact that it was more work than a 2-hour class should have, the class was absolutely fascinating, and I so enjoyed the teacher! I don't mind doing the work when I'm learning something.
Anyhow, I've been doing some small projects over the last month when I've had a few minutes here and there. One was a nightlight for the kitchen.
A nightlight in the kitchen is SO useful if someone gets up at night (to get a drink or go to the loo). It's amazing how just a little bit of light in the kitchen helps us to get around at night downstairs. We often have overnight guests, and I don't want them to stumble over a cat in the dark!
I cannot remember where I got this idea for a cheese grater light.
Maybe on Etsy:
But I've been carrying this idea around in my head for quite a while!

Also, I found the end off an old extension cord, and Dearest Husband soldered the wires together for me:
