Right now I’ve no idea what caused today’s power failures (
a fault with the National Grid?), but I do know that if we hadn’t stopped off for a cuppa, we’d have been among those on a tube when the power cut out. Instead, we got to walk half way across London in the rain, unable to get on the overcrowded buses, before eventually forcing our way onto one in Islington. Got home at about 21.15, soaked and cold. Funny to think that only a week or two back everyone was wilting in the heat.
Listening to Radio 4, and it sounds like things are still a bit of a nightmare in town so perhaps we were lucky – at least we got home!
