It was only for a short while, an hour and a half but we had a power cut today. I’m probably like many other people in that, it is not until your electricity supply is unavailable that you realise what a dominant feature this is in your life, especially when you work mostly from home and online.
No wi-fi, so you can’t find out what is going on, no washing machine, only twenty minutes left on laptop and worst of all no coffee! It’s strange how isolating it can feel when you can’t get online.
I do like to watch or read about people who have gone ‘off grid’ and some of them seem to have such wonderful lives but I’m afraid these one and a half hours have shown me that, I am nowhere near ready to attempt such a lifestyle.
