PS. I have about 6 old mobile phones kicking around, all of which are pretty ancient & not even worth sending to those money-for-your-mobile companies… anyone have any suggestions what could be done with them?? Or do you know of any charities that take them for recycling purposes?
What would you have in your Winter Survival Pack??? My mum has been snowed in for 36 hours plus now & had no electricity for almost the full 36 hrs… it’s back on now thank goodness. Unfortunately her entire village is electric only so she couldn’t go anywhere to get warm & she couldn’t cook. She has survived on tuna rolls & cheese on crackers!
Luckily she has plenty of magazines & books to read & two puppies to keep her entertained & warm. She had a torch & plenty of candles luckily and blankets so she did manage. The electricity was on for an hour and a half yesterday morning so she managed a cup of tea but I think I’ll be getting her a Thermos in case it happens again. And a battery run radio, plenty to keep entertained, paint, wool, puzzles etc. and plenty of tinned fruit. I’m glad the electricity is back on I was very very worried, but she is ok 🙂
