Cor, isn't it dark over there?

We just had a blackout.

I say 'we'. In fact, other people just had a blackout. I could just see them having a blackout (that covered half of Bristol apparently) but still had enough power to blog about it.

Suckers, you should live on our side of the street!

Still, my heart went out to them with their little candlelit urchin faces pressed to the window watching me sip a cup of tea from my electric kettle while standing under enough spotlight wattage to cut through mild steel and idly flicking through channels on the TV. Poor, poor people.

I'll go round and lend them a lump of coal later on to keep warm. I'm that kind of thoughtful person..... ;-)

Next week it will be you. Better eat all your TV dinners before then.

Oh...I think you're almost saintly Red! And if you looked really close at those tiny faces pressing in...I'll bet you could read their lips uttering the words...'you bastard'....

gb - indeed, so I've stocked up on candles, coal and a hundred Cadbury Flakes. I should last three, maybe four, days before I need to go and get some more Flakes....

Sweet Cheeks - ah, so that's what they were saying! :)
