Hey y’all, how has your week been? We’re having warm weather again, more Summer-ish than late Autumn; however the days are shorter all of a sudden and the afternoon light is low. Kate and I dropped Kel off at work late this arvo (photo) and half an hour later, when I collected their brother from the train station, it was dark.
Friday’s neighbourly fire threw us a bit of an anxiety fuelled curveball. It really hammered home how quickly things can go pear-shaped and how fast fire can spread. The fire on Friday didn’t even sound like fire, it sounded like gushing water – we originally went outside to check if the water pipes had burst.
It was surprisingly quick. Mind-boggling quick. If the QFES (Qld Fire and Emergency Services) weren’t patrolling nearby, both houses would’ve been alight within minutes. There wouldn’t have been time to grab the cats, a bag, or anything else. I thought I was prepared, our neighbours light a LOT of fires, but I wasn’t prepared for the speed of it at all.
I’ve spent the past couple of days doing an inventory for the insurance company. Wow guys, have you done an inventory of your house contents lately? Please do, you’ll be surprised how much that everyday stuff – sheets, towels, blankets, toasters – adds up to.
Today I finally got to spend some time sewing. Rem decided to borrow my sewing chair, so I ended up sewing standing up LOL. Do you let your pets get away with murder? I’m a big softie and can’t resist that ginger kitty face.
I’m hoping last week’s drama is now behind us and I can get some work done. After I’ve had my donut of course. Take care lovelies, check your insurance! toni xx
