12 May 2010
As part of the work for my kitchen I've had a new consumer unit installed. Until now, quite unbelievably in 2010, my house ran off two fuses - one for lights, one for sockets, and I believe some bakelite was involved. But it worked, and I don't think I've ever had to change any fusewire. (I'm possibly the last person alive who knows what fusewire is.)
But this took me back to my childhood, childhood , childhood. Above the fusebox in our house was a card of fusewire, and there was space to note the name and address of your local electrician. In that space my sister had written "Daddy", which it makes me happy to remember.
