We've had loadshedding for 2 nights from 6pm and tonight we have POWER!
Thurs - 6 - 11:15 (I was so cold I waited up to have a proper hot mug of tea - the water wasn't that warm when I had my cup-a-soup for supper a few hours earlier)
Friday - 6 - .... (not sure because I went to sleep at 9.07)
I really can deal with it if they do it exactly when they say they will.
Then there's a point in rushing home earlier and not finishing everything I want to at work, heating food, etc.
But when you rush home and nothing, and then they just spring it on you whenever they want, it drives me nuts.
We're all tired of eating cold food, I'm tired of not reading at night and most of all, I'm super tired of not having a leisurely evening going for a little walk, making supper at my leisure, having to be concerned with food we can eat cold.
As I said, last night I went to bed at 9:07 (I was reading on the ipad for about 45 minutes before that), but because it was so early, I was wide awake at about 3:30 am (this never, ever happens) for about an hour... and then my nose started running (an annoying thing that happens to me is if I'm awake and lying down too long, my nose starts running/ I start sneezing, etc.), eventually went back to sleep and got up at my usual Saturday time, 8. So I'm knackered today.
The only good thing (really, the only one) is we all pile into my bed for bedtime stories and such, and I get to snuggle with the babies.
Work is behind, blogging is behind (I don't mind that), and personal tidying up and sorting stuff out is also behind.
So what are the rest of you doing about loadshedding?
Have you accepted it? Do you buy takeaways? Are you braai-ing? Are some parts of your life falling through the cracks?
