The Lockdown Diary - DAY 54

Twix brownies and race night.

A further bonus in that the cinder toffee (apparently a Welsh term; the English call it Hokey Pokey. Apparently England is easily confused with New Zealand and I was Welsh in the 70s in particular) is a firm favour with all, including Mrs C, who isn't a big chocolate fan but does love the more routine jellies and sugar-based stuff.

#51 started with the zombie apocalpyse.

At 4.30 to 5am, we lost power. I assumed one of the appliances had tripped but when I actually got enough light to check the fortunately very accessible board, all were intact. The alarm, however, was extremely upset and was wailing away.

After a few minutes I noticed the early-rising builder who lives opposite was on the drive looking about, and the tone of our alarm had changed -or had it? I went outside and shared a few...
