Things I know about being disorganised and power outages

Apparently the best time to work on these beauties is the
middle of the night. Or at least that is the case where I live

This week Things I Know is brought to you care of a power cut which went from 10.02pm Thursday night till 3.34am Friday morning. Because apparently you don't need electricity when you are sleeping. Which I might point out could well be true if you didn't live in the tropics during the build up. Thankfully though prior to the black out the very first rains of the season bore down from some rather black clouds that passed by making everything a bit cooler than what it has been of late.

Anyway being the largely disorganised being that I am, coupled with the fact that it is school holidays, I naturally didn't have a post scheduled before the power went out. Thankfully (or not) Lovely awoke at 3.08am and lay there yelling about how hot it was without the fan on. She then moved on to how dark it was.

Somehow I refrained from strangling her, or repeatedly stabbing her with a fork which quick frankly I think is a rather major achievement. Instead I calmly sat with her in the hope she would nod back off to the land of sleep. All the while going holy toledo batman I haven't sorted TIK for this week.

Just as I made the decision to get my phone and use the remaining 30% battery to see if I could do a rather dodgy make do post before the battery went flat the powers that be took pity on me and returned electricity to my humble abode (and the entire suburb). As the computer automatically came on as well (on account of me forgetting about the notified power outage and it being turned on when the power went out) I took it as the perfect time to get this post out. I mean 3.59am has to be good for something doesn't it?

Zany has now joined me which means I know it is well and truly time to wrap this baby up.

I know that I will be back at a more reasonable time and share some more things I know over at Making Time to Make it Matter because this week I really wanted to share the things I know about hanging with lots of kids during the school holidays.
