I just found these on Amazon UK, just what I need for my workshop.

Interesting! When I moved to France in 2001 I made up 2 banks like this. However, my long term philosophy was to "go French" , so bought a very large number of French plugs and changed the lot. At the same time my daughter was moving house and summoned Dad for Diy work in the UK so I had to make the same thing but English to French!

I made a few back in the UK ready for the move, but I needed two more for the workshop. All my power tools have UK plugs, including my modelling ones and I am starting to use them now I can't do much else with this lockdown.

I have purchased a couple of electrical/electronic items that arrived with a UK plug. Each time I opened up the plug (one or two screws to keep the top and bottom together, and each time, lo and behold, inside I found the cord was actually terminated on a French 2 pin plug which was snapped into an adapter.

Of course, this won't work if the plugs are truly molded in place.

Copy the "title" of the product and insert it in the search line for Amazon.fr - it will pull up the same product on the Amazon.fr site so you can order it from France. (Actually, it picks up the same thing and similar products available in some cases from the French Amazon warehouse and thus with slightly quicker delivery.)

And say thank you to the workers who are required to keep up the same pace without the necessary safety in place.

Exactly what I did when the delivery guy dropped off my order for cat litter (not from Amazon, from Zooplus) just inside our gate. And what I shall do tomorrow when I go pick up my order from Jardiland., on the way to do grocery shopping (where I will also say thank you to the person working the till).

I haven't had any deliveries for a while, but saying thank you is normal, at least in my book.. Now of course I make a real point of saying thank you for everything you are doing for us and take care of yourself/yourselves.

I always say thank you and have a good day, I think that's just basic good manners.
