.. yes you probably know this already, but I did something so damned stupid on Saturday I could have killed myself.

Our bedroom is very annoying in the fact there is one double socket in the room. and I’d put a long extension cable from it to power the telly and the Sky box. It’s been there for a few weeks, and I had been meaning to cable clip the wire to the skirting to neaten it all up. So on Saturday I decided to tidy up the cable.

I needed to feed the extension through behind two radiator pipes, so I took the top off the extension lead, and threaded the open extension lead bit through the first pipe pulled the wire through and took it through the second. As I did this the exposed connectors touched the radiator I was leaning on and made the radiator live.. I made ‘Gggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg’ noise, spasmed hard and was puzzled as to what had happened. Then I remembered, the extension was still plugged into the wall. I was fine, I had twitchy nerves in my arms for most of the day, and my heart was racing, but I was fine!




Still at least the cable is tidy now.
