As I picked up the mail this morning I found a card lying there. The electricity man come to check the meter and I had not heard his knock (the bell has long been bust). I suppose I did not hear this because I spent two minutes hoovering a path through the dust around that time and that deafens everyone, especially the chap below who works nights. It's a giggle though!
I noted the card informing me he would return tomorrow morning, between 8-12 am. As I intend to be on a bus by 9:15 I may miss him. Now this is interesting to me as normally I check my own meter and send it in online, today was the company attempting to ensure I was not cheating them.
His problem is made worse as the meter is not in the house but in the basement entered around the back. My downstairs neighbour will never answer the door, he would be awake when this chap called, so he would not be informed of this.
However the card helpfully states that I can mark the details from the meter on the card and leave it where the electric man sent to check the meter can see it, a normal procedure right enough, however he is supposed to read the meter himself! So to ensure I am not cheating them I fill out the card normally and leave it for him! Brilliant!
If only banks were as helpful...
On the start of Windows 10 there is an 'app' that tells you the weather. On mine today, and indeed I've just noticed it remains there yet, the weather informs me the temperature is 65% and 'mostly sunny.' When I first noticed this, in between the WiFi disconnecting for no reason, the thin rain was coming straight down as it had been for some hours. It has restarted again, without the thunder, and will continue most of the night the BBC weather man claims.
Where I wonder do Microsoft get their info from?
Tsk! Now I click on it a change has arrived the temp has gone up to 67 and it is now, mostly cloudy.'
Someone must have stuck their head out of the window.
The reason the weather has deteriorated is because I have a wish to visit Camolodunum tomorrow. I must change my book voucher even though I bet there is nothing I wish in the only store open to me. A walk through the shops, in spite of the women using them, is a must, and then home to iron shirts once again. Scots schools have begun to return I believe, down here they are always a month behind. We have our last kids activity on September 5th, that's four Saturdays away, so I suspect if I don't get the earliest bus, 9:15, I will meet the brats spending folks money. It is possible the rain will keep them indoors.
