All this wonderful technology but where do I plug it in? I am writing this sitting in bed and I look around my large bedroom which I also use as a study and look at all the wires and plugs. There are 4 wall sockets and each one has an extension in with up to 5 sockets. To my left I have plugged in bedside lamp, landline phone, electric blanket, tablet and mobile phone charging, I need to unplug something to use my electric manicure set,or epilady, hair dryer or the latest hot brush I was given for Christmas. My kindle is abandoned as I now have an app on my iPad.,
I have a tv, with aerial and Now tv box, laptop, with printer, wifi modem, desk lamp, electric tooth brush charger, electric radiator, occasionally used in winter but in summer I have an electric fan and mosquito plug in which needs a wall plug as it has to be upright so no extension lead there.
In the kitchen I am not so techno but have an electric kettle, toaster, oven, dishwasher, one hob ring, and fridge but my best tools are a variety of sharp knifes and a potato peeler,
I won't bore you with listing all the other electric devices we have as my point is what happens in a power cut. My mobile Phone is useless if not charged and although not a great user why do I panic if I have to do a short journey without my phone? How did I have the courage 20 years ago to drive across Europe phoneless?
Stayed with my daughter at Christmas, her internet signal is so weak, we had to resort to playing board games and talking to one another and enjoying DGS doing magic tricks and taking the dog for walks. Great Christmas.
My point is are we too dependent on electricity and so many wires and plugs.
