Yesterday evening I was watching tv and then took Willow around the garden on her harness. When I came back in, hubbby had come in the room and switched the tv off. I couldn't find the remote to switch it back on and when I asked him, he came in the room to look for it. There was 3 of us looking on the floor, the shelves, under the throws, in the kitchen (?) and anywhere else daft for at least 5 minutes! Then my daughter noticed that Kai Ruki was asleep on the arm of the armchair and wondered if he had lay down on it - yes, there it was!!!!!
Early evening, we had a bulb go in the downstairs toilet which tripped the lights RCD (it was still light then so didn't realise straight away. Easily fixed but when the casing was removed from the light (the bathroom style glass bowl round the bulb) we were surprised to find a spider's web containing a number of desiccated large spiders Yuck!
Later we were just getting ready to do the cats supper when all of a sudden the power went off. Checked no problem with our RCD & the meter had no information visible (its a smart meter) so seemed to be a problem with the supply to us although other houses around had lights (odd). Difficult to tell about all of them as it was late & a number of them would be asleep & lights out. The street light on the edge of our property was also on. Reported the power cut via my mobile & it seems we were the first but as we were talking to the operator a report from a nearby road came through that they'd got some street lights out. So got text updates & eventually we got power back around 1:10 am. so had to go round the house turning out the lights, TV etc & reset the alarm clock. The engineers had gone to the sub-station (according to text we got at 0:42 & must have reset their equivalent of an RCD as our neighbour who'd had power woke around 4 a.m. to discover their clocks flashing & needing reset so I suspect that all the power (apparently there are 3 different cables feeding our area hence why only some properties & street lights).
