25 years a growing........

Posted by

Everyone has a book in them it is said, well defenitely we could write a book on all the events of the last 25 years both good and bad. Only yesterday while discussing open fires with a friend it reminded me of the time we were doing our photo shoot for the christmas brochure in my sitting room  -  in the middle of August.

Picture the scene, hampers beautifully displayed beside a truly blazing fire, christmas tree up to create the authentic atmosphere , complete with lights , baubles, and all the trimmings. The photographer taking shots from all the best angles  ensuring to capture the most amazing   pictures for our brochure. Oonagh and I checking  everything was correct .

Then the doorbell rang and  my next door neighbour walked in to tell us the chimney was on fire, - the surprise and shock on his face when he saw a fire lighting and christmas tree up in the middle of August was worth gold ....... we did explain and quickly had everything under control once the Fire Brigade arrived. 

We abandoned fires for the next photo shoot, 

Always good to remember the memorable  days!!!

Have a good summer everyone
