I wrote a post some days ago about how I was challenged to feed my family with £2 each for a day, and how hard it was. That challenge made me reflect on the little things we take for granted everyday. It can be easy to take the everyday luxuries we enjoy, for granted.
Many people are deprived of basic amenities. They have to go without things they would need for survival because they have no choice. This has made me think deep about how I would cope if I ever found myself in a situation where I had to go without. If I was stranded in a remote region, how would I cope? Well I am not sure how I would cope but I know what things I would miss the most.
Central Heating System
It is winter, so central heating is the first thing on my mind. I don’t know what I would do or how I would cope if I was stranded in a cold remote region without any gas cylinders for heating. I can’t even imagine that happening, it is a scary thought.
I would miss having a nice warm bath. The thought of not having access to a bath or hot water is horrible.
I would miss having a steady supply of electricity. I have not experienced a power cut in years. Not sure how I would cope stranded in a remote region with electricity.
I would miss having WiFi. I am always online doing one thing or the other, so having that taken from me would not be good. I need my WiFi like I need my air. I can’t function without it, plus it means I won’t be able to use my laptop, tablet or phone, if I have access to them.
Apart from missing all the things above, I would miss my home itself. I am a very homely person; you would most likely catch me at home most days. I miss my home whenever I am away from it for a period of time. I would miss my TV, my bed, my couch, kitchen, garden and everything else that makes my house a home.
