Normal connector block is fine, just make sure it's rated for at least 6a.
Black is neutral and red is live.

Any other questions mate, give me a shout.

Also, strip back the cable a bit so that you can connect the earth core up as well, especially if you have a metal fitting going up.

Some nice naoto fukasawa products being released by muji over here later this year. Miles better than most of the dross on the market










Shame the rice cooker isn't going to be available in UK

Want to fill an alcove in my living room with Vitsoe shelving, but i think its looking like it'll work out too expensive, are there any other similar alternatives?

How do you know about the upcoming muji drops Pops? Insider contacts?

Feel like I've been waiting forever for muji to have a decent bedside table option that'll match the Ash beds. They use the oak benches in store but they don't look like they'd actually be any good as a table in reality.

I bought one of these toaster during my last trip in Japan.
Really happy with it, and I paid it about £30.
I might pick up the rice cooker in the future

Just read about it on a design blog Brahms. It got quite a lot of press coverage.

Let's hope that ilse Crawford collection is better than her version of the centenary Robin Day recliner

Could anyone recommend a wireless HD transmitter? I am converting a bedroom into a study and am looking to mount a TV on the wall but not keen on running cables etc.

Anyone got experience in this?

We've just laid the following flooring in our living room:
http://www.diy.com/departments/colours-rondo-dove-grey-solid-oak-flooring-112m-pack/237617_BQ.prd

The aftercare from B&Q is non-existent/clueless, and the joiner who fitted it doesn't seem to want to make any suggestions either.

Do I need to be sealing this with something? Or can anyone recommend anything to give some protection/keep it looking good, without darkening the finish?
