Well Wednesday wasn't too bad after all. I knew in advance that there would be no power for most of the day, so I was able to prepare myself. I don't know about you out there in blog land, but the thought of being without my laptop and access to the internet sends a shudder down my spine.
I managed to hang on and not light the fire as it was a beautiful sunny day, the sun warmed up the south side of the house. I finally gave up reading my book at 3pm as the small print and low light was giving me a headache. I took myself off to the local supermarket and did a bit of non vital shopping. When I got back an hour and a half later the electricity was back on hurrah!
