Talking recently to someone who lives out in the bush where there is no electricity, and water is obtained from a borehole and pump, I was thinking how grateful I am for electricity that is there when I turn on a switch, and for water than flows out of taps when I turn them on. How much more difficult would life be for me without these conveniences I so take for granted (and complain bitterly if they stop functioning).
That somehow led the conversation to holiday homes for rent (always a cheaper option than a hotel for a holiday) and how the papers were scoured for ones with “all mod cons”. That being short for all modern conveniences. Back when I was a child, that meant more or less, running water, functioning electricity, a radio and a stove with oven and plates, a fridge and if you were lucky an electric kettle and a gizmo for making toast. A telephone was also sometimes provided.
Driving home that evening I wondered quite what the description “all mod cons” would mean today.
So that’s the theme
All mod cons
