There is never a dull moment here as you know and last night was no exception. I was enjoying 5 mins chill out time after tea having had a wonderful Funday Monday with Jo and suddenly I could see flames shooting high into the sky from over our hedge on the front of our house. Both hubby and I quickly put our shoes on and ran outside to find our neighbour at the other end of our row of terrace houses has set the hedge on fire. This hedge
is was about 8 foot high and 30 metres long going all the way from the road right up the the houses and it was having buckets of water thrown at it to try to put out the fire. His wife had bought him a new weed burner for the garden and he had been trying it out!!! As we ran down the front drive I heard the fire engine on it's way from the other end of our village so of course I ran back in to get a snap for you....couldn't miss the chance could I ? [so sorry I didn't get a better one of the men in uniforms for you] ;-)
I will add that it took the firemen a good 3/4 hour to dampen down the flames and put the fire out and thankfully no one was hurt.
I have two special little munchkins here for the day today [both taking their morning nap at the mo so I've just cleared my 'to do' rail] and have three other little people coming to play with Nanny Annie tonight so I think we will have enough excitement today :-)
