I just nearly burnt the house down!
I forgot to turn off the slow cooker last night. I was overdyeing the 50:50 silk wool that I wasn't totally happy with.... I had put it in the laundry cos Nathan hates the smell of hot silk. Of course I forgot all about it cos it was in the laundry.
I have no idea how long it will take to get rid of the smell of burnt hair. The house reeks of 80 grams of carbonised hair. I can't have a shower until the smell dies down cos my hair just absorbs stenches (like it has this morning - it stinks a LOT!).
So, dreamcatcher, it will be even longer before your birthday present arrives...
(Did I cry? What do you think if you had just carbonised a friend's well overdue birthday present and nearly burned the house down?)
