When I sorted the mail/junk flyers/pizza/ minicab cards from our mailbox on our return from holiday last Sunday a.m., there was one from Skanska informing us that the electricity supply would be disconnected in the Rotherhithe village, (I hate that name), area on June 19 from 08.00 until 16.00, for vital repairs.
We were told to switch off and disconnect Sky TV boxes, computers etc. and to turn freezers to their highest settings 12 hours prior to 08.00 today, to leave one light in the on position, so that we'd know when the power had been restored.
It is approaching 11.30 now, and the power is still on, I am typing this on an iMac, powered by electricity naturally.
Gee but it's great to be back in good old reliable U.K.
