I'm a fan of fans and cool breezes

I have a fan in the lounge room to create a breeze on hot days....

and on hot nights I've been dragging it through to the bedroom and adding an extension cord, so that I can run it while I'm sleeping.

But I've decided to bring in the spare fan from the back porch and set that up in the bedroom instead.

Ta Da!

I laid the extension cord along the open doorway ....

and fed it up behind the door to plug in by the bathroom mirror.

then I taped the cord to the floor so it wouldn't kink up and trip me in the night.

Because I didn't want to land face first here>>>

Can you imagine explaining a forehead bruise shaped like a toilet rim?

Anyway, it worked, I haven't tripped over that cord at all.

I have, however, stubbed my bare toes on this.
ah phooey!


  1. the painful price of keeping cool

  2. Maybe you need to stuff some pillows around the base of that fan to protect your poor little toes in the middle of the night.

  3. Can you position the fan on the other side of the doorway as it is in a very dangerous position between two doorways.

  4. Wow, what an immaculate joint. Did you clean up for the photos?
    I was splashing my face with water one very hot day and the seat fell and hit me on the head.

  5. Delores; not too painful, but I did hop and swear a bit.

    Susan; the real answer is to not have coffee after 3-4pm so I don't have to get up in the night. My feet have got used to stepping a little to the right now anyway, so all is good.

    Windsmoke; the other side of the doorway is another door, leading out to the back porch.

    R.H. Immaculate? thank you. I didn't clean up, it's always like this. Try splashing your face from the shower rose instead, or put a little water in the sink.

  6. I am a fan of fans myself - and in fact of any way of staying cool. I am glad that you have eliminated the tripping hazzard. Hot weather coming again soon. Sigh.

  7. Ah yes, the toe: a device for finding furniture, especially when it's dark or you're in a hurry

  8. Elephant's Child; I'm a safety girl.I plan on eventually dying with never having broken a single bone.

    Kath Lockett; it wasn't even dark! I stubbed my pinky toe within half an hour of installing the tape. I'm used to stepping a little wider now, so it won't happen again. I hope.

  9. Your place is lovely! I hate tripping over fans in the night, too.

  10. Happy Elf Mom; thank you, I'm happy with it. I hate tripping over anything, especially when it is in plain sight and I should have seen it. And avoided it.

  11. I'm always bashing into the bloody fan, I've kicked it so hard that the end bits fly off! Whoops!

  12. I guess that is why we had our overhead fans installed many years ago and believe you me they work a treat.

  13. Fenstar; you need to retrain your feet to avoid them.

    Mimsie; overhead fans would be great, but it won't be happening here.
