middle of the night. Or at least that is the case where I live

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.

No worries lovely, thanks so much for joining in, hope you have a wonderful dayDelete
I hate having no power, last year all the power poles in my street were replaced which meant days of having the power turned off. It meant forced housework for me as my computer only works if it is plugged into the wall!!Delete
Oh gosh Ann that must have been awful.Delete
Whenever we lose power I really do realise just how horrifyingly dependent I am on technology. It's really quite depressing. Happy the power came back on and I hope the rains bring some relief for you all up there! Have a great weekend Rhi!ReplyDelete
We have a gas cooktop and hot water - BUT - somehow (I think it's just the hot water) has an electric ignition so STILL doesn't work when the power goes out! WTF!Delete
We have gas oven and cook top and solar hot water, not that we really need hot water up here at the moment. The thing that gets me most about no electricity is the peace and quiet.Delete
Oh man! I would have got very cranky with her!ReplyDelete
We had power all last night thankfully! I get so frustrated when it's out like that in the middle of the night
Cranky wasn't even the start of if Jess, let's just say she was lucky there were no forks handy and I was too lazy to walk down stairs to get one. There was maintenance apparently that needed to be done, we were notified about it a week or so ago but naturally I totally for got all about it.Delete
Now that's blog dedication. Even if my kids woke me at 3am, I still couldn't be stuffed to put a blog post together!!!ReplyDelete
Hope you catch up on some shut eye over the weekend!
I had been asleep for about six hours by that time Janet so my body thought it had to stay awake. Figured when the power came back on I may as well use the time wisely. I hope I catch up on the shut at lunch time!Delete
I always keep a super stocked freezer and fridge, which means whenever there's a power outage my thought turns to all the cooking I will have to do with the defrosted meat. Not fun in a heatwave either :)ReplyDelete
yes I worry about that as well. Thankfully though we have a few good hours of no power before that has to happenDelete
