I have been looking forward to watching the Olympics. We have put up with a TV that has a horrible brown smear over a third of the screen for about nine months. Yesterday we passed the TV shop in Cirencester and somehow we just drifted in - as you do!! We came out with a brand new TV - so we were looking forward to watching the Olympic Opening Ceremony.
Disaster - this morning we had a power cut. According to our electricity supplier there had been a nasty emergency with power lines catching fire at a farm near us. The chap I spoke to was rather gloomy about reconnection times. I urged them to "hurry up" and fix it before tonight. I received a slapped wrist for not worrying about potential injuries - quite right too. Happily the power is now back on - phew!
