We had a power cut yesterday. It lasted for ages. Can you imagine how much fun a café (or a shop for that matter) is with no power? It was also dark. Really we should have had torches to give out to our visitors so that they could find their way around in the dark.
So what was the first thing we did when the power came back? Do you think we took care of our lovely visitors or quickly vacuumed the floors in the shop (which really needed it after having sofas and other large items of furniture thrown around on them earlier in the day). Oh no. We put the kettle on and made coffee for ourselves. It´s frightening how not being able to have a cup of coffee makes you really, really desperate for the stuff. What´s the phrase? - "absence makes the heart grow stronger". And that coffee tasted very good indeed.
I shall now return to the painting of walls. Hope I get it finished soon. It´s getting slightly depressing wandering around in my painting outfit the whole time. I yearn to put on clothing without paint stains.
Onwards and upwards!
You may be surprised to learn that the photo below does NOT depict me painting the walls. It is someone else, somewhere else. Pity. Nice wall.
