Wednesday

A very quick post as I want to save the laptop battery ... we've had a power cut since yesterday afternoon. I thought it was as a result of Storm Gareth but a neighbour has said that it's due to something that workmen in the next road have done. I have no idea when it will be sorted but the sooner the better ... no heat on a cold windy day isn't much fun.

I managed to get out yesterday and buy some more boxes for the bedroom cupboard ...


... (apologies for a really grainy phone photo) ... there wasn't a great choice of colours so I opted for four with matching handles, the thinking being that I can easily cover them to make a matching set if I want to.

Back tomorrow, hopefully with power restored!

    1. The power is back, the heating is on and I’ve been able to cook a hot meal. I have the laptop and phone charging, just in case.

  3. Glad to read that the power is back on and you are warm and everything is OK. :)

    Those baskets are lovely! They don't have to match, I think. You can have them alternating, one of each on the shelves, and it will look as if you meant for them to be that way!

    1. Thanks Bless. At some stage I have to cover the shelves and I’ll decide what to do then ... I have an idea brewing away in the back of my mind 😁

  4. Very glad you can now cook and stay warm, we are so completely dependent upon external services for our lives, sometimes makes me wonder what would happen if there was a serious breakdown of (insert appropriate catastrophe). Do you have gas in your house or is the cooking all electric?

    A couple of Christmas's ago we had no heating for 11 days which was thoroughly horrid, but thankfully the LX was alright and we have a woodburner. Without it I don't like to think what we'd have done.

    1. I have all electric for cooking so that I could get home insurance ... I have no sense of smell so couldn’t detect a gas leak and a leak monitor wasn’t sufficient. Strangely the gas boiler for the heating didn’t prevent me getting the insurance. However the heating has electric ignition so once the power had gone and the temperature eventually dropped there was no ignition to restart the boiler when the thermostat called for heat.

      I honestly don’t know how I’d manage if there was a catastrophic event affecting the utilities supply. It doesn’t bear thinking about!
