blackout! 23 April 2013
We had a power-cut and blackout last night and that hasn’t happened for a while in my life. Took me back to Ireland in the 70s to be honest and the fact that a mirror can only double the amount of flame in front of it so if that’s one candle then you get the light of two candles but that’s really not a lot. Like any use of mirrors, I have found that you need BIG to get BIG. Anyhow, it was all very exciting here on holiday. We were in the hotel’s seaside restaurant hoping to eat some nice fresh fish but ended up eating a cold meal of salads with my mum by candlelight and it was magical. Reminded me of when my brother and sister bring my mum away with them on a weekend jaunt and they tell me they all agree it’s very romantic!
