I remember the jokes at me when everyone was helping pack up my house after the flood. “You have enough extension cords to fit out a …….” was the type of comment.
Yesterday my new little ‘spare / home’ cellphone beeped it’s last at me. The battery was flat. “WHERE IS THE CHARGER?” I yelled. I also flinched as I am the only person at home and I’m sure the cats didn’t go and use it elsewhere.
5 minutes later with the phone plugged in I looked at the array. 1 music centre, 1 ipod shox, 1 printer, 1 wireless modem for the printer, space for 1 screen and 1 laptop – all on one plug. So the feeble little two-outlet wall unit is certainly not going to cut it for me. And some days 1 or 2 hot trays can be on.
I looked around the kitchen. Washing machine, dishwasher (hidden for the oven and stovetop), fridge, kettle, slow cooker, microwave, hand blender. That room is even worse.
What happened to the simple life?
