Never underestimate the importance of reading the fire notice in an hotel room. Fortunately I was dressed when the alarm went off this morning and though I remembered to grab my hotel room key, my phone and my coffee before heading downstairs and out of the building, I forgot to grab my coat!
Luckily it was a false alarm and though three fire engines turned up, just one fireman left the warmth of the cab to investigate. We all stood on the opposite side of the road, as one curtain after another was pulled aside and a sleepy face looked out to see if anything was happening. Only after everyone was out was the all clear instruction announced (though did anyone check everywhere?)
A bit of a wake up for those who'd been out of the razzle last night. But for the good, clean living Textile Treasure....no problem!
