Power cut fun

Or what to do in total darkness.

(That's darkness with a small d not the band)

Power was cut off last night by a fire in the substation, it took them 2 1/2 hours to get a generator hooked up to supply us with juice. DS has always liked turning off lights etc. and playing "power cuts" but if last nights whining was anything to go by, the reality, he has discovered, is not as much fun.

We tried to keep them occupied, DW got out the percussion instruments and I got my guitar, DD loved it and DS did at first but for him the novelty wore off. It does worry me that he is so dependent on telly to have fun, but last night also revealed that he doesn't really watch the telly as such, but simply keeps himself awake using it as an excuse. I think if we'd put him to bed 8 - 8:30 he would have been spark out.
