In the dark ...

What could be nicer on a Sunday evening than an electricity power cut right in the middle of tea - bangs and explosions of light outside with the fireworks going off but only candles and torches to light up our life. We did however turn this unfortunate event into a fun filled evening with a card game by candlelight, lots of laughter and merriment and the odd glass of something sparkling for those who partake (not me i'm tee total). I've not laughed so much in ages so out of this disaster came some good. Power was restored again at midnight after i had gone to bed, so no stitching for me LOL

Hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed the firework celebrations if you're in the UK, wonder if tonight will be the last night of them, my cats certainly hope so.

How inconsiderate to have a power cut at night! We had one last week but at least it was during the day! LOL!

Hope the fireworks will settle down now but I don't think we've much hope. No doubt they'll be going off until new year.

Oooo brings back memories of the power cuts in the 70's when me, DBro & DSis were kids - loved playing games via candlelight. Sounds like you all enjoyed it. :0)
