#233 Electricity

Kudos to Thomas Edison. Because tonight, the first night in our Sea change home, as we waited tensely with fingers crossed that what the electricity company said was correct and that we WOULD get power in a matter of hours, it grew darker, and then our fast food of schnitz and chips arrived.

And so with baited breath, I went to the meter box, flicked the switch… I heard some kind of connection, and hubbie yelled from inside “we’ve got it!”

Relief. Happiness. Exhaustion.

We are so happy! And with the house too.

What a simple luxury. What a life-changing necessity.

And then I went through the house madly switching on all lights to make up for lost time…
