Last night we had a couple of power cuts.
During Big Brother the lights went out, the telly went off. It all returning about a minute later. Big Brother was very amusing.
Then shortly after 10 pm I was sitting in bed reading when the lights went out again.
Everything went off: lights (inside and outside), clock radio, even my book disappeared!
Jane and I were going to go out ram-raiding and looting down at the Anstruther harbour, but we were feeling a bit tired so just stayed in bed with our Mini Maglites and battery-powered radio.
Then the radio went off: the battery had died.
