That was exciting enough.
Then I decided to make some lunch so I turned on our tap. And I got a dribble of water.
Hubby went out to check and yup the water people were up the road fixing a burst water pipe.
Great. Water was back on about twenty minutes later and then everything got very hectic
Our fire app warned us that there was a fire in the next street, the same place there was a fire last week, and only a little way past where the pipe had to be fixed
Today the weather was very windy and the grass fire soon took off
It took 23 fire trucks and helicopter water bombs to put it out. But not before it threatened houses and neighbours were evacuating people's racing dogs and horses
We even got an offical get ready to evacuate the home warning.
Scary stuff. But our wonderful fire fighters got it all under control and peace has been restored to our little piece of paradise.
So now I'm relaxing and watching Indiana jones and feeling very lucky and blessed.
Won't forget this birthday for a while
