Bloomin computer. It decided to stop in the middle of me typing yesterday - just shut off as if there was no power.
Checked the plug fuse, the socket - all ok but the 'puter would not turn on. Grrrrrr.
So I left it and took Karen and the kids out for a cream tea for Mothers day. Came home to find we had a power cut..........so re-planned what we could cook using the gas hob and the microwave. Fired up my generator that we keep for these occasions. Only to find it has decided that it will no longer run the microwave without flashing a red overload light at me.
I managed to run smaller items and charge some lights up for overnight use but turned the gennie off before it got too late and annoyed the neighbours. Got the kids to bed by torchlight and read books by torchlight.
The power eventually came back on after 9 hours - around midnight
Now I've woken up to find there's a gale blowing and it's snowing. On top of that it's Monday
The plus point is that after taking the case off the computer and wiggling wires, it seems to be working - but for how long I don't know
