and I noticed some lovely men, all dressed up in uniform
who were giving away free stationery (you'll recall how the POVS never seem to have a ruler or an eraser or a paper-clip between them when it comes to homework time? I need all the free pens I can get my hands on. . .) (mind you, the LFB put a new meaning into a pencil full of lead don't they?) (and no, getting my hands on a pencil full of lead is not why I invited the boys round today) (not today, anyhow)
back to the plot
so, the LFB were basically offering a service where they come to your home and check it for fire safety and install smoke detector alarms at no cost to the householder - all in the name of fire prevention - and the free stationery was just a teaser to get you to stop and have the conversation with them (not that I needed an excuse to stop and oggle, I mean, have a conversation with the gorgeous hunks)they came, they visited, they left
and having covered every inch of I,LTV Towers, (every inch of I,LTV Towers, not I,LTV you'll note), the LFB guys in question have pointed out to a very ashamed moi the places where fires could start and the things I could improve upon regarding fire safety. . .
only two minor infringements (one place, one thing) you'll be pleased to know - both involving electrical sockets (one where I had one of those old square block extension plugs in use - these are a complete no no as regards fire safety and should be replaced with a modern four-gang; and another where I had a four-gang plugged into an extension lead to reach the socket, because the four-gang lead wasn't long enough. . .also a no no)
but, I know this is the real question you want the answer to, did the gorgeous hunks I met when I was out 'n' about actually turn up at my door. . .
