6 days no power and two small kids plus a renovation = no art


Well i am on the other side of 6 days of no power ... we had bad storms here on friday and stuck without power until last night. I thought my feet were going to freeze off!!! not to mention go completely mad as we were in the middle of knocking a wall down in our living room and have two small kids to bathe, feed and entertain for the whole time with no TV!!! arghhhhhhhhhhh

if we had had heat i dont think it would have been too bad .. but it was absolutely freeezing !!!! ... luckily our lovely neighbours had power and let us come and boil the kettle and leech a bit of heat off them at night .. but they have a 10day old newborn .. not an easy time for them either.

Anyhow we survived ... we were much better off than some.. some people had flooding and lost family members and their houses and livelyhoods... what was drought one day was flooded the next .... we scrapped by with our tree falling down on the neighbour's house but no damage done ... a nice reminder of the little modern conviences we have like a fridge and running hot water!!! and lights at nightime ....

so needless to say no art done !!! i have a backlog now of design work to get done so hopefully i can post some art soon !!!!
