So Pat got up at 6 on her birthday so she could see Gwilym before he left for school

I was lying in bed reading a book on my phone. Scuttling noises from the hall.

"No, they're all down. No, everything seems like normal..."

The electricity had blown the trip. I got up and gave it a try. The trip wouldn't stay on.

"What did you turn on just before it blew ?"
"The kettle and Gwilym's heater"
"OK, go and turn them off."

The trip stayed on.

"Now put the kettle on"

Clack - the trip blew. The kettle's duff. Poor Pat. No early morning birthday cup of tea for her !

Weeell, it doesn't look as though her devoted husband would have brought it to her in bed anyway, does it????????

Not, of course, that I would be one to cast nasturtiums!
