How HappyLamp was born (from the ashes of a 6£ Tesco lamp)

It did not take long to realise how bad this cheap lamp was for reading in bed:

The incandescent tungsten filament in the 20 watt bulb irradiated, surprisingly, quite a lot of light, but the ceiling was enjoining that light much more than I was.

I needed to pierce the shade of the lamp to shed some light on my end-of-the-day readings. And then I was struck by inspiration. I did not want just a lamp with an holed shade. I wanted a HappyLamp (with a holed shade).

And this is the story of how HappyLamp was born.
