We had no electric all day yesterday! Why? Well they where replacing all the poles and cables along our road.
We where toasty warm though and had plenty of warm drinks and food due to our Rayburn! But when it came to light, well that was one thing the Rayburn could not supply!
Back to the trusty candles, the girls agreed it was fun, I think bearing in mind where we live how fortunate we have been not to have more blackouts! It took me back to all the power cuts we used to have in the 70's!
Then it got us thinking, having watched alot of period dramas, as I do love a 'Period Drama'! Thinking specifically of the BBC's Cranford where they limited themselves to just one candle! How did they sew, or read with just one candle as you can see we lit up our table and although it doesn't look like it, we had a good light to read and playgames by!
It does look so pretty too!
