Making Me Happy Sunday

Last night I was at work and my youngest son was on the same shift. We had a fire in the store and it started in one of the refrigerated cabinets. Luckily the store was shut and there was only four of us there at the time. It was amazing how quickly it took off. 
While the boss was madly phoning the fire brigade my level-headed boy grabbed a fire extinguisher and put the fire out. The store was full of smoke! 
We had 3 fire trucks and 2 ambulances turn up and it was all pretty dramatic and exciting. It could have been a lot worse and if Jack hadn't put the fire out there's no telling how much damage would have been caused. 
Very proud of my boy and I wasn't the only one. The firies were very impressed and asked him to join the fire brigade ha ha !
I'm so glad the night didn't turn out worse than it did! Nothing like some drama to spice up the night shift! 
Have a great week!
