Power Cut

It’s not until it goes away that you real­ise just how much you rely on it!
This lunch time just as I was set­tling in to do some work while watch­ing Forest on BBC1 our power went. It had pre­vi­ously gone dur­ing the night as when I woke up my alarm was flash­ing and show­ing 4.30am, mean­ing I had slept in and missed church. So just as I am set­tling down for work the power goes again. Fine, I thought I will go make some lunch, only one prob­lem, our cook­er is elec­tric, doh! So Unable to eat or do work I was left stran­ded, over to Lucie’s and they don’t have power either, double doh!
It just made me think exactly how much I rely on elec­tri­city. I need it to do most things, my work on a com­puter, to cook for myself, to see by (it was get­ting dark when the power came back on) mod­ern day life pretty much relies on this stufff to func­tion. I had a plan to go into town and do some bits and bobs which need doing, only one prob­lem, without power I can­’t get money or pay for things! The world pretty much only works with elec­tri­city, kind of a scary thought!
