Powerless

Standard

 

Today we had a day without electricity whilst planned maintenance was carried out In the village.We knew about this in advance but it still came as a shock to the system. We carefully filled a flask with hot water before the outage began. Three minutes after it started we decided to have a cup of tea. Obvious result no more hot water.

Then I had a bright idea .I could use my iPad as I’d duty fully charged the battery. But hold on no WIFI as hub switched off. OK I thought I will go and play in my craft room. Hand sewing seemed a good plan but I needed to iron the creased fabric. How quiet everywhere was no radio playing no hum of the fridge no noise. All I could hear was bird song and the odd vehicle in the distance.

I did some cutting out, gluing and playing with paper. Oh and I actually read a couple of magazines a very pleasant change from reading blogs but still no cup of tea! So this is a taste of “living off grid”.
