Morning dramas + Firemen

Posted by AJ Blythe at Thursday, January 07, 2010

What a morning! Our fire alarm went off this morning for no reason, and every time we tried to stop it, it would just start again - with our renovations we have to have them hard wired into the electricity grid by law, so not as simple as removing a battery.

We couldn't see or smell anything, but didn't know if it was in the roof or somewhere out of sight, so had to call the firies! So there we are, standing on the footpath with sirens and lights flashing, and the whole street coming out to stare at us *blush*. Firies couldn't find anything - they think it was dust in the fire alarm system itself.

My day has been thrown, so not sure I'll squeeze my writing time in. Sigh.

Pity this bloke didn't show up. Wow, you'd be inspired to write all afternoon, eh?!

I know Mon. Would've brightened up the whole episode for me ;)

Oh Anita

You and fireman!

Next time if you are sure there is no fire, switch off your electricity at the mains - it saved the red face and the electricians that you call to fix the fault, are sometimes just as good to look at - without the whole street sharing in the gawking session....

Haha ... I am still laughing with you at this... what a way to get inspiration for a story.

Bye 4 now

Hey Tina. Starting to think I need to have a fireman in my next ms...

I did think about turning off the electricity, but as we'd only had the alarm installed less than 12 months ago, thought it should be fine and maybe there was something more sinister.
