Something nasty under the floorboards!
We have all the lights working and full power! Hoorah! Mind you it took most of this morning for the two electrickery fellows from the gas company ( don't ask!) to trace the fault which they eventually found under the floorboards in our bedroom. Not risking a hernia by moving our massive oak wardrobe they asked our permission to saw through the boards and fiddle around with the wiring running between the joists. It was fascinating hearing them shout instructions to each other as they tried each socket in turn to narrow down the place where the fault might be. Obviously a good problem solving exercise for them. Anyway,it got sorted and now we can listen to the radio, download, watch tv, do the washing, boil the kettle and make ice cubes all at the same time! You just take these things for granted, until they suddenly vanish!
