A weird start to the day.... Updated

The bedroom light only came half on and remained very dull.

The temperature outside when we got up was 1.7C and the red light was on the boiler - it was off. Even though we hadn’t got the heating switched to come on we had no hot water:(

Switching the tv on it came on and off continually before finally switching itself off:(

Then the electricity came on/off several times before finally going off for a few minutes! Alien invasion, Electro Magnetic Pulse wave??

After breakfast, DB tested all the tv connections but couldn’t find anything amiss. We called our emergency line on boiler servicing and the boss himself is coming soon. Switching the tv on it decided to work and is still working at the moment, phew!

I started our bread, DB took Ruby for a walk before going out and I am waiting for the repair man...

Boiler fixed, the fuel pump was leaking onto the coil, who knew! Bill to come:(

Chipped windscreen needs replacing now, more expense...

  1. How strange! We have frequent power cuts but they only last a minute or less usually, and nothing flickers on/off like that. However, our smoke alarm did go off yesterday morning, for no apparent reason (it's done that before). Definitely aliens about, I think!

    1. So far, nothing else has happened, fingers crossed.

  2. That is very odd. Could be aliens, I suppose .
    No problems here - yet!

  4. Hopefully you are done with the gremlins messing with your house. Glad the boiler was fixed so promptly.

    1. Hopefully so. We won over him going kitchen unit shopping with his wife!

  5. Wow, very strange. Hopefully everything will work correctly now. Ouch on the windshield repair.

    God bless.

  6. We often have similar power cuts, apparently due to birds on the overhead lines.
