    well it was like being back in the blitz last night, not that im old enough to have seen it,Dartford and the surrounding arears were cut of from the rest of the uk with vandalism to a electrical sub station 65,000 home effected,Power slowly coming back on around the area but Dartford still in the dark.
    The kids thought it was the end of the world not being able to watch TV or play xbox and what no computer.
    So we had to sit and talk to each other, which turned into playing chess then a few games of cards, Then when it wasn nice and dark outside we lit the candles and told ghost stories.:eek: When we finaly went to bed at 10:30pm the two boy were to scared to sleep in there bedrooms so slept in there relative doorways where they could see each other with the light from there mobile phones.
    The worst thing was we have no gas cooker so we had to boil water on the BBQ for a cup of tea. well that was day 1, it is now day two and we still have no power.
