Won't be on here much for a few days. EDF have struck again! Mains cable cut through while they were connecting a newbuild. They cant (or won't) tell us when we can stop using this noisy generateur!!

When EDF were replacing the main cable and gear to our hamlet they just turned the power off for the day, fortunately we were at Geoff’s at the time. bounce

That's not good timing, is it? Does this scupper your grand opening ceremony?

My original reaction was to spot that there was some land that you hadn't yet built your line on. But then:

Did that fox pay to get in, or was he a gate-crasher? Cool

I saw something, but i was thinking of a cat behind the fence, needed to look more at it to recognize a fox (too many cat we have and had maybe).
