Why have I not been on the computer?

Sometime between Thursday night and Friday morning there was a power cut. I don't know how long it lasted for but by the time I woke up the power was back on so, what the heck, off I went about my business. I had a good day, spending the morning at college and in the afternoon I had an appointment at the hospital and then I went and did the weeks shopping.

Then I got the last bus home at ten past five,getting in at quarter past six.

And when I got there - no electricity - again.

It's my fault that I don't have a torch, or any means to get by when there are power cuts because they happen everywhere, to everybody.

But it doesn't happen quite so often to the rest of the population as it does here in Hillswick, Shetland.

And is a reason given?

Or perhaps an apology?

No, never. There is no sound of them improving the electricity supply either.

Wonder why?
