Good morning all
3.7C last night .... and what an odd evening that was! We'd just settled down to watch tv when the lights went out! There had been engineers digging up the pavement nearby earlier in the day - we looked out of the window and saw floodlights, vans, compressors and men working. OH took a torch and went and had a word - they said it would be up to 3 hours! We wondered about the frail elderly gent next door (he has carers visit regularly during the day, but it was past their last usual time) then fortunately we saw that his daughter was there - she visits regularly - so that was ok.
What to do for three hours? Playing Scrabble by torchlight didn't really appeal so we went to bed. The lights came back on around 10 o'clock and we woke up - turned things off and went back to bed - at least I got the early night that I'd planned.
