I can live without it.
I was watching some episodes of Big Bang Theory yesterday evening and got many god laughs and never noticed that the lights in the apple tree went out. I also never realised that the lights upstairs went out either because the electricity to the tv and dvd player worked as it should even though nothing else electric worked upstairs. It wasn’t until I was going to bed that I realised all that because I couldn’t see the way to my bedroom 🙂
The storm was howling outside and the rain was pouring down sideways towards the wall where I have one of my two fuse boxes, the other one is down in the cool cellar so I hoped the fuse or fuses that didn’t work were placed down there. Of course they weren’t, why should they? Life isn’t supposed to be that easy is it? 🙂 One good thing was that I when going down to the cellar that the timer that keeps the light on there for the few plants I have there during winter must be corrected, The big lamp shone even if it shouldn’t.
They made this cottage a bit bigger when they once upon a time renovated this cottage and for some reason they then placed another fuse box on the outside, they also gave me three new main fuses, so instead of only having three I now have six 🙂 and no one knows why 🙂 There was no way in h… that I would go out in to the storm to change fuses so I found my tiny flash light and went to bed instead. I could live here without electricity since I have my fire heated stove to keep me warm and cook my food.
The storm was still blowing hard this morning and it was pretty dark when I went outside to check those fuses but at least it didn’t rain until I controlled all fuses 🙂 I found one directly (I have that old kind of fuses that needs to be replaced) but the second was a bit tougher since it was a main fuse and all looked to be intact. I really dislike those tiny colored metal lids that are supposed to fall of if the fuse break but never does.
I managed to break one of the main fuses by not turning of the power completely and it turned out that I only had one more of those at home, so I had to place the new one in one socket and move the one I had replaced to the Finally I have power in my entire cottage again and tomorrow I’ll buy new fuses and throw away all the others I have at home since I’m not sure if they work properly. They have been placed in the fuse box outside for more than thirteen years now 🙂 This rarely happens here, one time in thirteen years before yesterdays fuse meltdown.
Soon I’ll start the fire in the stove again, noo need really since it is so warm outside and I already have had it burning this morning. I’ll make a pot of tea and something to eat and then I’ll go upstairs. There’s most probably nothing to watch on tv so I think I’ll watch some episodes of BBT again, is it possible not to love those people 🙂
Have a great day!
