Friday 2 power cuts, one 2 and a half hours long the other just under an hour.

18:00 it is now dark and we are enjoying fish and chips.
22:00 Electricity company have no idea when the power will be back, Alex
has been in bed but the temperature in his nursery is dropping steadily.
00:00 Alarm on the battery powered baby monitor go off, it is only 14 degrees in his nursery, so we bring him into the main bedroom and close all the doors.

06:50 Ring electric company, still no idea, if we want a generator we have to ring back.
09:00 Ring back no generator as they are digging up the road looking for a faulty cable.
09:30 Pack up and move next door, there power is out since this road works started this morning.
Find someone 30 mins away who will take us in and spend most of the day on phone arguing about the availability of electricity generators.
The people who took us in are friendly and we go for a nice lunch etc.
06:30 Electrify Co. inform us that work has stopped due to a gas leak. Nice people offer a room for the night.
06:50 Drive home and in the dark pack up everything Alex
and we need to survive the night.
07:20 Car is loaded up, engine is running and ... the lights come on and the most of the estates house alarms go off.
Is it fixed ?! hmmmm the lights are flickering at the moment ...
