Poor you - I was thinking myself lucky that I only had laid-back Sunday plans, and that it didn't matter that I only had unironed clothes to put on and couldn't wash and dry my hair.

On a birthday that would have been no fun at all.

You don't realise how much you need electricity until you lose it!

Not a birthday but a wedding anniversary. Our 19th... and neither of us remembered till my mobile phone diary 'pinged' to tell me. This was at 2.30pm so we decided to go and have a meal in the Dolphin. Of course they weren't serving so we ended up with olives and peanuts. Just like the olden days........ except then we couldn't afford the olives.

Very sorry to hear about the power outage. I'm in New York City and had my birthday yesterday. My wife, two sons and I ate dinner outside across the street and listened to a quartet playing beautiful music. It was extremely hot in NYC yesterday, however, and the electricity system was seriously stretched.

We are about to move back to the UK and will be living in SE26. Previously, 6 years ago, we lived in Camberwell, SE5. My wife is English and I'm Irish. Our lads are 3 and 6 and will be attending local schools.

We are very much looking forward to the move and meeting many of you. We should be installed by the end of July, all things going to plan.
