And the lights went out again!
So, this time, as they came back on I turned out my light, having turned off the electronic alarm and settled down to sleep.
Now this is whn I realised that my local council was signalling to someone.
My bedroom has a street light just outside the window - and for the next 1/2 hour the lights flicked off and on in a random pattern. I just wish I had learnt my Morse Code!
So, if this is my last posting here, it is because I have been taken off to Planet X .... send Dr Who ... or Piccolo to rescue me ... please!
