...by 9am yesterday morning.....

... I had phoned 999, tackled the fire, listened to the sirens as the appliance arrived, greeted 6 firemen and resisted the urge to have a VERY stiff drink!

Everyone needs to get a fire extinguisher and, more importantly, know how to use it.

I've signed up for Shimelle's 'learn something new everyday' class - yesterday's entry is going to be a goody don't you think!
Today I learnt how to tackle a fire while phoning 999!
But, I also learnt that when you are there in the moment its not as easy as you think! NOW, I realise I should have grabbed a towel and smothered the fire while Sarah next door was throwing water at it - she was a star!
Thank goodness we were both in - look how close it was to the house! shudder... could have been much worse if we hadn't been in. shudder.
I don't like to think too much about the 'what ifs....'
