Power Cut

The power went off last night and stayed off until around three this afternoon.  I kept thinking "I'll have a shower now" or "I'll  watch some TV" or "I'll shred some papers to pass the time" and then realising that all these things were impossible. 

What I did do was finish Rose Macaulay's Dangerous Ages. It's another of her novels from the 1920s- and all about how frustrating it is to be a human being. I'd say she was depressed when she wrote it.

And now I'm catching up on all the cups of tea I missed earlier.
