Snap, Crackle, Pop

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.

Comments
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....

Impressive :) If the pub was still open, the blokes might have gone and taken a swaz on it to try put it out. Hehehe. GOD bless Rob :)

Funny, that I tossed off a fairly casual remark the other day that I'd like to visit Moffat, Dumfriesshire someday, and here you are organizing a knitting retreat not forty miles from there.
