Power cut turned out to be our fuse box but only discovered on the way out of the house.
Powercut so got washed dressed and packed suitcase by torch light. Then car broke so borrowed jane’s. Good start to week.
a bizarre beach where you dig your own hot water pool at low tide and then sit in the sweltering hot waters naturally coming out of the ground under the sand.
there’s a weather bomb on the way tonight apparently. just got the emergency sever warning emails from regional emergency management
it’s cold outside. and it’s even colder inside. putting on a wooly hat to eat sunday lunch. then off to friends house for warmth

whilst on the way to a work meeting i saw this stuck on the wall outside a cafe. much better than anything i could have thought up.
