Ah the joys of rural living!
On Tuesday morning Amy was woken in the early hours by various alarms going off, triggered by a power cut. Still no electricity by getting up time but once reported the engineers came out really quickly and they were reconnected just after nine. She said: "Apparently a tawny owl was dead underneath the big box thing and it had fused. Poor Tawny. The man says it would have died instantly and it happens sometimes. Thank goodness for the rayburn and the ability to make tea!" A morning without tea just doesn't bear thinking about.
