No, not these cheery chaps, but what appears to have been a wheelie-bin on fire. I was woken by what sounded very like distant fireworks, some time around 2am on Sunday. Not good, as we’d only made it to bed about an hour earlier…. Then I noticed the clouds of black smoke, and the lovely orange glow, emanating from the close across the street.
A quick 999 call later, and a brief discussion of the difference between Crailing (where the fire wasn’t) and Crown Lane (where it was), and the fire engine turned up. Our plumber is a relief fireman, and he was on duty, so I hope he wasn’t too peeved at being dragged out.
Apologies to anyone who’s left me a comment recently. I have read them all, and do eventually hope to respond. Summer holiday time is (for obvious reasons) not really a good time for extended correspondence!
Fibre Crafts Retreat
See recent post for basic idea….
However, we’re starting to think about perhaps pushing it back to late May/early June to allow for folk to save up after SkipNorth and the Creative Crafts Show in Glasgow in March….
