The power is gone!

The fuses are fine, the houses on either side are fine, the bill is paid and there are no dead possums sizzling on the wires out the front.

I have called an electrician and he promises to be here within the hour, which promises to be expensive. Luckily, we rent, unluckily, I will have to fight to get the money back, luckily, I write the BEST letters outlining rights and responsibilities and if our estate agents cannot be arsed to give proper emergency details for their preferred people on their website or letters, then they have no grounds for complaint.

But my computer was not fully charged when everything went, woe! Am torn between writing until it all goes and saving everything up for now and reading by candlelight in the interim! We are well supplied for torches, batteries and candles ;-)

Next time I nearly impulse-buy one of those solar chargers, I will remember this day and grab it so I have an extra charge on hand!

Good idea!

Or maybe you can generate your own electricity *imagine Brammers generating electricity using a bike*


Anyway, I wish it gets sorted out soon!

That's how we used to power our bike lights! But yes, I am eyeing the rowing machine to see if there is any way to generate meaningful power. The electrician is here, at least!

EEEP indeed, hope the electrician fixes the issue swiftly and inexpensively.....

He's here, so there;s hope for the fixing, though probably not the cheap part ;-)

have you noticed that the power always goes out in the most inconvenient times? It never does it when, for exapmle, you're away for dinner, or when it's the middle of day and it's not needed.

Hope it's fixed soon!
