A late night.

It’s 8.55pm. I’m just leaving for the day.

Late.

And hungry.

Very late.

 Quite hungry.

The reason is that at 2pm today there was a loud bang and the power to 14 caravans went off. The fault is on an underground cable that was installed just 3 years ago.

Since 2pm we have been racing around buying extension leads like crazy (so good for B&Q’s profits… 14 leads at £20 each) and we have rigged up a temporary supply to the affected caravans.

Enough supply to run a couple of lights and the fridge, and more importantly watch tv.

Not enough to boil kettles or run hairdryers, but hey – a bit of power is better than none at all.

We can get some new armoured cable on monday morning when the trade counter opens, and it will be interesting to find out why the new cable failed so soon.

Original cables in 1975, lasted till 2003.

New cables in 2003, lasted till 2007.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !
