Whats wrong skip? Fire at the old crossley's ranch


" What’s that Skip?" Sonny says "Fire at the old Crossley ranch!!!!!"
For all you Aussie's out there you know the famous "Skippy the Bush Kangaroo" show from the 70's. Skippy was the equal to you guys in the states of "Lassie" the famous Dog who could do anything, Skippy was the same. It could deliver messages and undo things with his/her paws.
Well as the heading said yes we had a fire at our home on Sunday morning, our TV bust into flames with in minutes of my daughter turning it on.
We were lucky as I tried to contain it with wet towels before two fire trucks arrived to put it out.
It was very frighting, but my two children were wonderful, one calling for the fireman, one getting me wet towels and turning off the power it could have been alot worse.
The smoke was just awful as it went through the
Whole house thick, black toxic fumes from the burning TV. Now the mess to clean up thank goodness for insurance so far new carpets and painting the whole house will be install for us here. This makes me think how lucky I am to have my wonderful children; Matthew with his chronic Lung disease is having problems with the smell and has to stay in one room as the rest just STINK. He said to me last night as I was putting him to bed Mum today is 12 months since I was diagnosed with Diabetes.
It makes me think and thank my lucky stars, it puts things into prospective, in the misted of today cleaning up ash he had a diabetic Hyper and it was so bad he went blue ,Nicole and I both thought he was going into a coma but court him in time.
“Life is too short to sweat the small stuff” a wise man once told me that (T!M) and its true
Take care
Jen
Ps.Thank you Dawnie You made my Day with a much needed laugh when all was down.
