Power to the people!

We've just spent a fun (ha!) few days since a huge storm tried to tear our house apart on Sunday afternoon. We only had our power restored at about 3am today, which made for two very dark and unpleasant nights. Mum and dad saved the day by letting me use their house as a base yesterday and letting us use their stove for the past 2 nights. We did lose pretty much everything in our 2 freezers though, which was a bit sad.

Anyway, I'm SO glad to have the power and the phone back (not to mention the internet!), but so exhausted from all the to-ing and fro-ing and cleaning of the past couple of days.

Xander has been left with a fairly severe fear of rain / storms though - he cries if he gets wet in the rain now, and tonight he grabbed my hand during dinner when he noticed it was raining and said "pray... God.... rain" because he was scared!

Hugs to Xander. Katherine is the same :( She just clings to me, everytime the sky rumbles. Hey and I think we are going to the same daycare centre next year :)
