This is....what scares me!

Fires!
ive been known to double or triple check that everything is switched off before I leave the house or at night when we close up for sleep and even then I convince myself Ive left the oven on or something silly like that ...and go and re-check....i always sleep with my keys nearby....if im out walking and see a ciggarette butt on the ground I have to step on it - just in case ....
We also have a fire escape plan on paper and in my head - i think its good for every home to have one...

  6. Yes, it would be a terrible thing to happen... so so devastating and ruthless in it's destruction. Love the book cover.

  7. I totally understand that fear and have made an escape plan with the kids in case the worst happens. I think I made it sound way too exciting though, all that throwing duvets out of windows and wotnot...In total agreement about the book and illustration, lovely!

  9. I'm with you...everything's unplugged and I am always double checking....I cringe at our over-cluttered basement because I know it's a fire hazard...that's what I get for marrying a pack-rat !!

  10. I'm with you on this one..... I just wander out of the house without and second's thought, but then on my way home, for some reason I expect to find the house on fire when I get back.....WEIRD.

    Seems lots of us have the same irrational fears!
