So if I haven’t been around as much as usual the last few days it is because we have been having hectic power cuts!
On Thursday we had no electricity for six hours! And on Friday none for four hours.
This wasn’t part of the scheduled load shedding, but something must have broken, like at a substation or the transformer – whatever.
I usually make a thermos of hot water before a scheduled power cut, so at least I can have a cup of coffee. However, with these long unexpected outages, I was left high and dry. I had to resort to drinking plain water. I know!
Even though these days (because of rubbish internet and power cuts) I usually prepare my posts in advance and schedule them to publish the night before, it sill affected my blogging abilities, since during the day I read and I comment on other people’s blogs.
And it’s not as if the moment the power is back on I rush to my laptop and start blogging away! I do have other things to do also. (Like rushing to the kettle!)
The next thing I’m wondering is: After 10 hours of power cuts in a 28 hour period, what food will have gone off in my fridge? And will I remember this a few days from now, when the expiry date is fine, but the food is iffy?
