How was your Earth Hour...

Well I must say I was a little disappointed in the response...

As it turned out I went out at 8.15pm to pick up Kait from her friends, and pick up Butter Chicken on the way home for her late dinner... so by the time all this was done it was 8.35pm as we were driving along Fergusson Drive towards home. We past many houses with their lights blazing, Burger King and all the petrol stations were in full blaze of lights... and we were saying together "shame on you". Then we passed a few houses that you could see the 'glow' of the television - though no house lights (yeah thumbs up)... as we were heading to Silverstream, I said to Kait now I wonder if the 'golden arches' will be off - and YES they were - Well done McD's and right next door was the Mobil petrol station in full blaze of lights - go figure - when we got home we raced upstairs to get the matches and candles out, though have to admit we did leave the TV on to watch "Dancing with the Stars" - no quilting done :( - though it will be interesting to see the Late News on TV tonight to see how the rest of NZ went with the Earth Hour.

Hugs

Hey Julz,
well done on your hour of power - or lack thereof. Good on you - we did the same last night, whilst a lot of houses nearby didn't bother, tuff huh, but at least some of us bothered
