When we were young

You know how the older folk always say “When we were young …”  I was thinking about that tonight as we were once again blessed with being the chosen ones to go without power.  

(Which I must say is driving me nuts, since they seem to “save power” exactly when it’s time to make lunch / dinner. When people are on their way home and traffic lights are kinda important to keep the traffic flowing.)

My folks used to say “When we were young there was no electricity

Now we will get to say to our kids:  “When we were young we always had electricity

Sad that, don’t you think?

    A little perspective can make our thoughts go a long way, can’t it?

  2. Hmmm … I think my son will be saying, “When we were young, others always had Xbox or Nintendo or Playstation — but not me. Your grandparents were sooooooo weird that way!”

    A power cut every now and then is fun in a way – on Xmas night we had one for about an hour – we played Trival Pursuit by candlelight. But not sure I could deal with every day – and as you say at mealtimes.

  7. I am so tired of power cuts!!! Yesterday it went off at 8am and only came back on at 13h00!!! I only have so much I can do without my PC or printer or scanner … extremely frustrating 😦

    I hate the power cuts especially when we are at work.
