It was another hot and oppressive night last night. Sadly Hubby’s plan with placing the fan in the hall on oscillate didn’t materialise as
1) there was no socket in close proximity,
2) the extension lead was snaking across vital points of access (ie. the loo door)
3) it was difficult to get past it to go anywhere.
We have therefore resorted to Plan B (how ironic this last line is)
In the cottage and our previous two homes we had ceiling fans in the lounge and major bedrooms. Even if we had them running all night they didn’t run up the electric bill, and the three of us weren’t chilled.
We’d priced them last year and were gobsmacked at the cost so ended up buying the free standing one that has now been replaced. I had that going last night for about an hour to cool Maggie down as well as having the windows open. She was extremely restless and Hubby let her out at 1am. She started to eat grass, so we thought uh-oh, she’s going to be poorly, but she came back to bed and I made sure the fan was blowing in her direction but not at her. She fell asleep until just after 5 and seems quite content this morning. It’s still muggy though, but rain is forecast for later.
Hubby got on the internet this morning and has found a ceiling fan that is not too expensive, so it is on order and we are awaiting confirmation of stock delivery. He’ll put it up in the main bedroom as we’ll still have the free standing one for the lounge if needed.
It’s a Plan…………….. and we all know what happens if we plan anything!
