This week I'm posting about two favourites, because I was all set to post about George, but then we had a number of massive storms here on the Sunshine Coast. We were very lucky at Chez Sunshine, no damage at all and not too much rain either, but lots of areas on the coast had damage. Due to this we were without power from 4.45 pm yesterday until 10.30 am this morning. So my other favourite thing is electricity. I miss it when I don't have it. Without electricity we have no lights, no computer (aaaaaggghhhh), and worst of all no water. No water to flush the toilets or have a shower, we live on acreage so no town water, it's all stored in tanks and needs a pump to get it to the house. No aircon or overhead fans when it is 24 deg C (75F) at night to cool you down and 33C (90+F) during the day. So now that my electricity is back on, I LOVE electricity. Fingers crossed the forecast storms for this afternoon and tomorrow are not as bad.
(I was prepared yesterday, with buckets of water and bottled water for drinking, lots and lots of candles, and a battery powered radio, so it wasn't a complete disaster, and we went to my parents house for a shower this morning. I've just bought a big bag of ice, just in case, and stocked up on more batteries, and I'm now charging the lap top, iPad, cell phone etc so we have something to play with if it happens again this afternoon.)
I want to finish on a high note and what better way than to watch the one and only George.
He is scrumptious and I just love these Nespresso ads.
Thank you everyone for coming to play on FTF and I'm really looking forward to seeing all new FTF's next year.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Have a lovely break and take care,
Here's the link back to Quilting In My Pyjamas.
PS A long overdue thank you. I completely missed mentioning that her awesomness, Shay came up with the name for my Wonky Owls, so thank you so much Shay, you saved me from going bald, tearing my hair out trying to think of a name.
