The electricity went out on friday night.  Not because we hadn't paid the power bill but because a storm the size of Australia hit New Zealand and light struck something it shouldn't have.  This is really unusual for Auckland to be powerless but luckily for me I was a little prepared.  The bedside cabinet has a wind up torch, the pantry has a supply of candles for such occassions and a lighter and finally as it was diner time the bbq was ready to be used.  Nothing like a little preparation really.

So after fumbling around in the dark for a little time, settling the children and finally locating the candles dinner could be organised.  I then realised that an hour had passed and we had no chance of knowing when things would be returned to normal and there is nothing less desirable than going to be dirty.  Finally, at 7.30pm I was feed, showered with nothing to do and by 8pm was in bed asleep.  Boy I must be tired.

So in honour of our power outage here are some pages.
