Wiring socket to switch

Hi everyone,

Hopefully I知 posting in the right place.

I知 in the middle of doing some wiring and I知 a little hesitant.

Can someone confirm if this is correct please??

I知 putting in a new socket where there was one already. I知 also adding a switch which wasn稚 here but when I bought this flat there were some cables left to install lights further down the wall.

Basically the Live neutral and ground are coming from the breaker to the socket. I took 3 other wires from those 3 places on the socket and put the live in the top of the switch. Then 2 lives from the bottom of the switch to the lamps. The neutral and ground I attached to the neutral and ground which goes to the lamp ends (there are 2 lamps) Does that sound right?

I知 in Poland so these are European switches/sockets.

You're posting in the right place but it looks like you are cramming wires in area that is too small.
An electrical box has a limit to the amount of wires you can bring in.

I see a cable in and a cable out in the first picture.
Two blues, two browns and two grounds.
Is that power in and out or power in and switched out ??
