No electricity since last Wednesday! No hot water, no home cooked food, no fridge. It’s been terrible! I’ve had to go and charge all my stuff and bath at my mum’s house plus we’ve had to buy tons of ice for the meat in the freezer. Hubby has been going crazy without any TV or Xbox. The worst part though is not being able to cook. We’ve been living on take aways and I don’t even feel like eating food anymore.
On Sunday we got a notice from the council to say we’ve still got another 5 more days of this to go and so we decided to buy a generator to ride out the situation. With Hubby at work its been up to me to lug the big thing outside, fill it up with petrol and get it started. I’ve had to have a bath twice today cos of spilling petrol on myself! Plus these things are freakin expensive, I hope we can claim back for all our expenses. There are tons of wires all over the place running the fridge and TV and cellphone chargers, etc. I’m quite fed up of this situation. And apparently well be on an ‘unstable’ line till the end of March after which they will set us up on a new substation.
On top of all this I’m pulling out my hair with frustration at having to sit at home. I’ve been waking up my normal time so that I don’t get lazy but 12:00 I’ve had a bath, cleaned the house, did washing, cooked, had breakfast and been job searching! The afternoons are left to reading but that makes me sleepy so I pace up and down the house trying to keep myself awake. I don’t want to get into the habit of sleeping late and waking up late. I hope this doesn’t go on for too long!
Thanks goodness my sister lent me her laptop so at least I have contact with you guys :). How is ever7one in blog land anyhow?
