OK…3.55am on Wednesday morning I wake up to find a fire alarm going off. Or at leastI think its a fire alarm. Vonnie sat up and didn’t have a clue what it was. I got up and walked into the hall and found there was a smoke detector going off that was stuck to the roof. It had been painted over and with it being a tenement flat with high roofs we’ve never noticed it before. Just after vonnie checked on Finn, who didnt wake up at all duing this btw, it stopped of its own accord. Why did I not panic at all about this?
I climbed up a set of ladders to find it painted stuck but eventually opened it to find it was mains powered and it wasnt the battery dying as I’d thought. Seems its connected up to all the other alarms in thebuilding so if one goes off they all go off. Quick check of the flat convinced me nothing was wrong and noone was evacuating the block so I assume someone got home and burnt some toast. Still….didnt really get back to sleep properly so i’m now fighting to stay awake
