G'day all - 'tis a bit on the windy side here - not much sunshine either.
Friday shopping run this morning which I'm not looking forward to. Our local Morrisons are altering their store, which includes using part of the car park for constructor's site cabins, and another section for some sort of huge refrigeration plant. Result - about 20 car parking spaces lost until the alterations are complete in October

Weird morning! Woke up, glanced at the clock, 6:45, turned over again. Woke up again, the clock was blank, looked at the mobile, 7:30. Through to the lounge and kitchen, some things were working, others weren't, even things off sockets in the same room, no lights at all. Asked my neighbour, his electric was ok. Checked the fuses, all fine. Was going to ask my neighbour if he knew a decent spark but decided to try switching things off first, maybe narrow down the cause of the problem. Went to switch the cooker off and noticed the clock on it was flashing, same with the microwave, everything had sprung back into life again

That’s where your going wrong, you need to make impressions in plasticine then press the coins in, makes a nice mould, fill with water then freeze.

Perfect crime as the evidence disappears 🤣

Will get her in later tho’

Meanwhile I have a nice warm fleece, a comfy garden chair and a glass of Shiraz- sitting out, keeping an eye on her and enjoying the evening.
