The electricity company is sending someone round but they insist it can't be anything outside the house, and we'll have to pay. I have a sneaky idea it's got something to do with the street lighting, but they say that's impossible.
Do any of you clever people have any ideas?
Can't comment on the timing but those trips 'wear' I believe - become more sensitive over time. Could be that.
It happened to us a fair bit when it rained and the local electric shop sent a man around who spent at least an hour identifying the problem - a damp junction box somewhere in the house - and fixing it.
That cost 30 Euros - so worth it.
