OMG whats that, whats going on, my husband shouting about the alarm clock & a really loud bell clanging
UP he jumps semi naked and not the half that should be and starts for the bedroom door, followed by me, not at all awake, he is shouting its 1.30am, fire alarm is going off....so he starts down the stairs, I decide to follow him as back up in my peach nightie and then I pass the ledge outside the bedroom door and spy A WEAPON...oh goodie...a WEAPON... I pick up A FLY SWATTER and a broken one at that. Seems totally logical after under an hours sleep, with heart racing and following the shocking husband with blue fly swatter in hand we creep down the stairs and turn the alarm off and creep back up the stairs and then we wake up and he pulls on pants and picks up a snooker cue and I realise that I have a FLY SWATTER in my hand and I run and cower in the bed, he returns downstairs..ALONE (what a coward I am) and finds nothing.... (thank God) ... then hears other alarms going off and we realise that we have had a POWER CUT & for some reason its set off the alarm
So we sit in bed and stuff energy sweets and shake and realise just how very stupid we are & how awful it is for anyone who has had a burglar. Our son popped in today & we recalled the story and he gave me one of those oh dear they are going senile looks when I told him about the fly swatter & then burst into laughter.
I have been thinking of how lucky we are that we are safe and how awful it is for the people in Australia & Tasmania who have and are losing their homes. Home is so precious isnt it
