Good Saturday Morning Friends,
A busy day here today as we prepare for the arrival of Paul's Parents, Lucy kindly took me food shopping yesterday, it was her first experience of doing a BIG food shop, those trolleys that fit onto your wheelchair aren't really big enough for a family shop! We managed though, with a precariously stacked mountain we made our way very slowly back to Lucy's car....a Mini....Challenge no 2 ! We managed to fit it all in, including the wheelchair!!
We had quite a lengthy power cut when we got back from shopping, it really made me think of how unprepared we are these days for them. When we were younger I remember that we had a special cupboard in the Utility room where we kept things like candles, matches and torches, batteries etc. for emergencies like power cuts. I always remember them being quite exciting, I think my Dad always made them fun to prevent us from being scared, he used to make funny shadows with his hands on the walls. We have had a few little power cuts of late so I think that I will look out all of my big candles, find the torches and have the batteries altogether, I also have a portable power bank for my phone, laptop etc. and keep them in a special cupboard in the utility room just like my Mum and Dad did.
