Power Cut

We had a power cut yesterday morning. Ailz rang the supplier to ask what was going on and they said it was pre-scheduled and we ought to have received notification. Well, we hadn't. They said, Whoops, sorry, and we'll send you some money to make it better.

If we'd received notification we could have made preparations. As it was we had to drive into Paddock Wood to buy hot drinks.

One of the worst thing about a power cut is my mother's stair lift left starts beeping and there's no way- short of employing a sledge hammer- of getting it to shut up.
