Uploaded my entry, settled back on the sofa with the dogs to watch a little telly and kaboom! Power cut. Wonderful.
Thank goodness for Ed again. Bill and I snuggled up in bed with him and a DVD. We watched this film called Spartan which Bill thought was good, and I thought was a bit wooden and only so so.
A call from Cara in the morning indicated that BrightHouse was without power too, but no sooner had Bill taken the doggies out for walkies than she phoned back to say all was well and to come in to work.
Dragged myself out of bed and got dressed in the dark and off we went. I had a couple of illustrations to do too so I was earning as well yesterday. Hoorah!
Was very proud of myself last night too. I pulled out a pseudo kilt skirt I bought online last year while I was still totally confused about American sizing. As a result it was somewhat huge. But not anymore! It’s now totally adjusted and wearable. I also decided I didn’t like the metal buttons it had down the front so replaced those with six little red felt flowers and some beads. Cute!
Oh, and an announcement for Daddykins. being both a Radio 4 Bore and a Douglas Adams fan he is probably already well aware, but…
Tuesday 21st September is not only the day Sy and Mel make a return visit to the UK, but more importantly it also sees The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy return to Radio 4 at 6.30pm. It’s a brand new series starring some of the original radio cast. Excited? You should be. I just don’t know how they are going to top, or even match, the inspiring theme tune from the previous series.
Doo dooo diddliddle doodoo, doo dooo diddle doo
Don’t forget your towel.
