Another fire

It was only last October that I wrote about a fire in eldest DS' bedroom. On New Years Eve, one of our children lit a fire in a bag of tea towells and it went into the wall of the house and into the flooringof our family room above. Quite a scary time. Damage to the house.

We were just finishing the repairs to the bedroom. Lots of stuff had been stored in the room that was damaged this time and I was so looking forward to getting all that sorted and the room could be used again. Now its a waiting game to get insurance finalised, etc.

The good news is that everyone is safe and no one got hurt. We still have a house to live in. Unfortunately, we have a very troubled child to cope with as well.

2013 is going to be a fantastic year. Lots of projects planned - as always, lots of finishing on my lists. But a few new ones will sneak in as well.

Yes, safety is the most important thing. Getting further help for this little girl is high on our list of priorities for 2013. She is a very traumatised child. That's the saddest thing. Taking children away from horrific situations is only the first step of a very long journey for them.

So glad that you are all safe, It sound like this little girl is with the right family who will obviously get the right help for her. Wishing you all the best for 2013.
