On the plus side...my house is spotless

Can you imagine...housework...with no electricity....
sweeping.. mopping... wiping down...
dishes washed by hand....clothes washed by hand...

I need a rest....

We have them all the time in the summer here.
It always reminds me of the power cuts when we were children.

Good luck tomorrow Shaz, got everything crossed for you.

Its a nightmare for me cuz at the minute the house we're in is completely electric...Private renting u see n its something they didnt think to mention. even when we asked who the gas and electric suppliers where they kept us waiting.

We had a power cut few months back stayed off for an hour then kept flicking on and off.... until like 11 at night.... I dont keep candles because Andrew is severely allergic to wax bee's honey etc!!! so its safer tht way jus incase bambino's got his dreaded curse too!!


LMFAO lease is up in august and im goneski!!!!!
