We are thankful that it is Thursday. When mum left work it was raining and cool again, but nowhere as bad as last week when the big storm hit. Once the heaters are started up our little house warms up.
Mum has put down a clean bathmat by the heater for me, and I usually snuggle on it, but tonight I am preferring my bubble wrap blankie on the bed for a while.
Mum is whirring up the washing machine, and getting the clothes cleaned for the week. She has a day off tomorrow and doesn't want to be doing chores.
Our new friend Karen wrote us a comment about our fire alarms last night. We usually change ours on August 1st, but this years battery hasn't lasted a full year. We have got a replacement and changed it already. Unfortunately our landlords are overseas and not available to replace the batteries, mum has to take care of that. We wonder what you think about wired in alarms like our friend Eileen has? We have heard of fires that burn through the wires, turning the alarms off and put people at risk. Most people in NZ have alarms with batteries and these seem to work just fine.
We are thankful that we have never had a fire - fires scare mum.
