Default I'm back

After being in the 1930s for a few days! Due to Storm Arwen which hit the north of England on Friday night. We were without power for 3 days and nights. No heating, no lighting, no phone, no mobile signal, no wifi. Just a coal fire and cooking over the fire. Not a fun experience after the first 24 hours.

I am sure others were affected too. We still have people in the area who'll be without electricity for another 3 weeks. But thankfully ours is back on now - fingers crossed.

Pip is in the room with the coal fire so I sat up late and kept the fire going for him at night because the temperature was sub zero otherwise. Mind you he must be very confused as it was dark most of the time - apart from torch light - no lights going on and off.

Positives were - we played monopoly and listened to the radio a lot (something 21st century teenagers aren't in the habit of doing).
