We had a powercut yesterday morming.  Instead of panicking I was rejoicing because that meant that the Mhinisteir couldn’t do ANYTHING! Wonderful I thought as the Mhinisteir has been overworking and I am very cross!

I also got reminded of the umpteen powercuts that we used to get in the Highlands of Scotland especially during the winter months.  The hot water flasks will get filled and we would just sit around until it was over.  Sometimes it would go on for more than 48 hours but you just learnt to adapt!  In some ways, it was exciting.
