Hmmm, not bad I say! Our household's two bits of savings are also there. My husband and I went for a walk to the beach, rather than sit in a dark house or stare at each other gloomily with candles. (Yes, we are that age when candles are not romantic, only dim and gloomy!)
I was amazed at the number of families on the beach, and also realised that there's this whole world of post 8pm activity in my neighbourhood that I am unaware of.
So, Earth Hour made me -
1. Save power
2. Chat with my husband
3. Enjoy the cool night breeze and the crashing waves
4. Live without internet for an hour
5. Check out the social life on the Thiruvanmyur beach
Maybe we should do this every month!!
And it doesn't matter what the sceptics say, switch off those lights and give the cynicism a one hour rest too!
