Well, it is really good that I can’t post smells on here! I am unclean! 😩 Today, our residential block had a planned power cut which we forgot about until the lights went out! This was just after I woke up but before I had had a cup of tea or a shower! You may have gathered or already know I am not an early riser. I also woke up with one of my headaches so was a bit more befuddled than usual!
Alice realised she couldn’t work at home without the internet so took herself across the road to the nearest free wifi cafe! I was going to stay in bed and rest my head until Alice sent me a text which said “”I’m sitting inside and gonna have toast too!” The word toast had me and then I thought of a hot cup of tea and thought “Sod it” got dressed without a shower or hair wash, collected my stuff together and followed in Alice’s footsteps. Two slices of toast and jam, two pots of tea, 3 Internet sessions for Alice and a good read later, I was feeling much better. We went back to check the power at 12:00 when they said it would be back on – no power! New time for power on 3:30! We grabbed lunch at “Subway” (yes, they have those here too!) and then headed for the library. Fully airconditioned, desks and power sockets available for free if you joined – which Alice did. Once we had settled down I enjoyed over an hour reading knitting books and Alice endured work.
Around 3 I decided to come back to the house and build some furniture for the new baby. I have been meaning to do it for a while but things have happened. I didn’t need power and I could let Alice know if the power came back on. It took me about 2 hours……..
Not the best picture of my IKEA chest of drawers. I definitely used skills handed down from my Dad. Organised and methodical meant I only made one slight error but realised very quickly and put it right with out wasting too much time. I am actually quite impressed with the improved drawer designs which are much stronger and have built-in support for the bottom of each drawer. The instructions were simple too!
I forgot to have a shower before Elsie went to bed and now I can’t until tomorrow morning! Never mind I will thoroughly enjoy one tomorrow!
