So today I had a plan. Get up really early, do my chores, sew for two house take grand daughter to music come back and sew all afternoon - what do they say about best laid plans.
So up early - check. Animals given feed and love - check. Laundry on - check. Garden watered and loved - check. Beds done and house tidy - check. Just about to jump in shower at 10 to 8 when daughter calls out from the shower - there's no water..... So have a look the power is out. We are on tank water so no power means no water, no toilet, no cooking, no heating can't even open the garage.
Quick call to the energy co, they ask me 5 times if I have checked the switchboard - yes, they will be out within 4 hours but it will cost me $51 for them to come...do I have a choice.
So an hour later the biggest truck I have ever seen, complete with cherry picker on it and two men knock at the door. They tell me there is a crew working down the road and there will be no power for the whole day should be back on by 3pm 4 at the latest and they are sorry they forgot to inform us. I thank them for coming and shut the door GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.....
This is my second full day of no power in three week. I normally don't like to whinge on my block but just a minute let me drag my soap box over.............
To my electric company - would it kill you to let me know so I could be ready and fill the bath and the kettle so I could at least get a drink and go to the loo and maybe open the garage so I can get my stuff out - oh and I'm not paying you the $51.00 for coming out.
So to cheer myself up I have joined Wendy for FNWF (what a wonderful hostess).
I have been working on finishing the blankets for my upcoming stall..
Don't they look snuggly. My puppy is in the background standing guard in the bean bag...
I then started putting Santa together. He big guy put on some pants we have company..
I was going great guns until this..
I think the power company booby trapped my hot glue gun because it got me a beauty!! I think I will put a line through today and take me and my boo boo on my finger off to bed.
