Mum says that if she was any good at inventing stuff, she would invent a fire alarm that didn't start beeping at 5am. Especially on a freezing winters morning, and especially when the ladder is in the shed outside. So she didn't actually get out of bed till the alarm went off at 5.45am. I was not happy - she was keeping me warm.
Can you see how high up the landlords put the alarm too? Mum is shorty, so she is just about standing on top of the ladder with the tongs in her hand to reach it!!
Don't worry - we haven't replaced the battery yet, but have another alarm in the kitchen as well.
