Woe is me.

Got up this morning to fine the circuit breaker for the socket lines had tripped, unplugged every thing but still wouldn't stay on.

Emergency sparky on his way, why do these things always happen on weekends and bank holidays?
It is so annoying, I had a day of dyeing lined up.

Off to the hospital tomorrow morning, deep and everlasting joy. I will be sure to take some knitting.

Yesterday was a mixed bag for weather and today looks like carrying on in the same way.

Dinner will depend on whether and when the power is restored, I have a gas hob with an electric oven. I am toying with the idea of a bottled gas oven and fridge. My lovely neighbour has let me put an outdoor safe line from his house to run fridge and freezers, and most importantly the kettle. 
My next purchase will be a kettle for the gas hob, I had one in Tydd but left it by mistake.

Ben was full of himself this morning, so eager was he for his walk that we were back home before the time we usually leave.

I am enjoying listening to the pay row at the BBC, now we know how Chris Evans can run a fleet of luxury cars.

On that cheery note I am off to drink my tea and get myself ready for the sparky, whose arrival is imminent.

  1. So sorry about the electric problems Pam. Good luck.

  2. I had the same problem with my electric a few months back. The tumble drier in the garage had blown up so although I turned off all sockets in the house, the electricity still wouldn't come on! Luckily my BF knows electrics.
    When we move we'll have to deal with gas bottles and oil!!!

  3. Oh no Pam....what a pain up the rear.
    Hope all is sorted now and you are up and running again-x-

  4. It never seems to fail, that things break down or go out at the most inopportune moments. Somehow the tank on our front toilet got cracked, and it leaked all over the bathroom and hall floor. I have no idea how that happened. It's lucky we have 2 bathrooms. It got replaced by the landlord.
    Hope the electrical problem was not too serious and you're back to having light and appliances that run.

  5. Hope your electricity was restored. Apparently high winds cause a lot of power cuts here so we are looking at alternatives in readiness for the Winter.
