Toujours toi.

POWER CUT GAMES
-
Firstly, let me tell you... a power cut as an unfortunate event is a standard experience here in Malta. 😑 It occurs at least a dozen times per year for as long as 2 and even 6 hours. 😒
I still don't get why an island with so much water, wind & sunshine can't get its own source of electricity, but that's not the point. 😉
-
With so many time spent without electricity per year one has to have his Power Cut Game strong... like really strong. 💪 Generators, multiple external batteries, candles, other independent sources of light... you name it...
☝️You better have it all at your disposal when the "lucky hour" hits in order to actually continue the everyday life with the least amount of discomfort. 😥
Now, believe me, with the baby, it becomes even more important and therefore stressful.
-
For instance, when recently the power cut hit again, we kind of freaked out for a moment... 😨
-
Just imagine... Suddenly, we are in the dark... No light... baby starts to be anxious as she can't see anything around... The temperature in the apartment is going down few degrees per 30 minutes as the heater is not functioning and there is no central heating in houses in Malta... We expecting our little girl to become hungry very soon, however, there is no electricity to prepare food or even to boil some water for the milk... And the list goes on. 😫

☝️😊 Luckily, on that day, after a minute we've realised, that we have everything that we need not only to be sufficient during those couple of hours but also to have a pleasant and even somewhat more magical evening than any other day. 🙌🏻
-
And few nifty gadgets with are just a must have for such occasions.👍Just look at that battery-powered EVE lamp from Elgato brand which has turn into a mysterious egg full of magical light (it can change colours as well by the way). Look how stunned and amazed by it our little one is! 🙌🏻

It's Not an Ad anything like that, but man... I am so glad I bought it for the BBQ evenings and power cut moments like this 😅. It has created an opportunity for those couple of hours without electricity to become one of the most memorable family evenings of the entire winter. 😄💙

Because real love is messy and often painful, filled with as much dark as it is color...
.
.
Context: It's kind of cheesey (to be honest) because these are just leaves I collected from under a tree down the street and this is such a simple concept but when I was spreading this out (around Valentine's day last year), I was thinking about (and feeling pretty intensely) all the pain that love brings with it. Specifically about the back-to-back deaths of my dad and father-in-law just a couple years ago (to cancer and sepsis respectively) and the darkness their departures brought not only to me but to my family. Yes I miss them but I was contemplating an even heavier reality - my mothers are widows. And in light of this intimate fact, the sobering reality that not all Valentine's days are joyous. When we invite real love into our lives, we also invite real pain...
