Well that escalated quickly, didn't it!!

It was still summer at the weekend and now this.

Sorry folks, I may be letting the side down but can't be fagged with the old harden up pills and warmer PJs; I've gone straight for the heat pump instead.

Don't worry - the heat-pump is on in our house now.

Luckily we have electricity to run it - not everyone in Auckland does tonight.

I know it was pretty widespread; we lost ours last night and was off for about 10 hours. It came as a bit of a short sharp shock and good warning to stock up on batteries, candles and such like because we were taken a bit by surprise.

Hopefully most are back on by now.

Our electricity went out just after 10pm last night. No idea when it came back on, just grateful it did.

Our heatpumps are on. Not impressed with this Antarctic blast.

The temperature where I live is forecast to go down to a chilly 11 degrees overnight.

I can hardly believe that I am complaining about the cold.

Yup. Wife couldn't take it any longer and changed the heat pump from 18 degrees cooling to 23 degrees warming this morning. Was only 8 degrees when I walked down with the lad for the school bus....Bloody Baltic!

Lol. Still got the pool heating on (was maybe over-hopeful of an Easter swim) and yet feeling like lighting the log burner in the week. Auckland, eh?

Yes, I know.

It's certainly turned notably cooler. So far this evening I am coping with few harden the f*** up candles alight but think it won't be much long before we see the heat pump come into action.

No way. Not had any heating on for weeks and not even had the heated blanket on
Had to sleep with a leg and arm outside the duvet again last night as it's just too damn warm to be fully immersed.

Heated blanket? Harden up.

Are you in menopause?

Ha Ha no it's the wife. She likes to get in to a warm bed. I think it's way too hot when it's on.
