So much HAPPINESS in my life today!
Joy! Our kitchen ring main has died. I was heating up hot chocolate and heard a fizzling sound, and the microwave stopped working. So did everything else that runs off that ring main.

Like a Sensible Person Who Understands Electricity, I went to the fuse box. Where I found that the kitchen ring main fuse had not tripped. I flicked it to off anyway, waited a few seconds and back to on, but there is still no electricity to the kitchen. Richard reckons it might need a new circuit breaker.

Even better: the fridge/freezer is plugged in somewhere behind itself, and it's too damned heavy for me to move. So I can't actually unplug it and move it onto the downstairs ring main until Richard gets home from work.

Also, because this month's period decided to turn up early, I am having PMS during bleeding. Which is just not fair, because I feel awful physically AND mentally at the same time.

The period being early is actually not a bad thing because we're camping again this weekend, and it would be good to have mostly finished bleeding before dealing with portaloos. But I am having really bad self-hatred and urges to be dead - which is just great. Don't be alarmed, I know I'll be fine in a day or two. This happens pretty much every month, just not normally quite this badly. My PMS fucking sucks.

Grrrr at the PMS weasels. And the doubling up of PMS and bleeding. Sodding Bodies. It's probably too much to hope that it will mean everything reaches an end more quickly.

Which is all a preamble to sharing that my brain is now so used to people cut-tagging period stuff as "TMI" that I decoded it as "Timeofthe Month Innit" X)

Hope one or the other of you have got the electric back in action.
