Never leave a candle unattended

Here’s a piece of free advice: never leave a candle unattended. If you do, you’ll end up having to call around for painters and decorators West London.

I learnt that the hard way last week. I decided on a long, relaxing soak in the bath after a rotten day at work, and an even more hour commute on the way home on the tube, so I lit some candles, filled the tub, and closed my eyes.

Exhaustion and baths are never a good combination, but I was stupid enough to throw naked flames into the mix, too, and after I fell asleep a towel caught fire and proceeded to set the clothes hamper alight.

It was not a good evening.

Yes, I managed to put the fire out before it spread but there’s lots of smoke damage and now, I’m looking for painters and decorators West London.

I’m sure they’ll have encountered a numpty like me before, but it’s going to be pretty embarrassing to ring around painters and decorators West London and explain that I need to redecorate my bathroom and hallway because I fell asleep in the bath.

The only good thing to come out of this whole experience is that I’ll have the place repainted. I’d been meaning to seek out painters and decorators West London for a while now, but I’d rather fate hadn’t forced my hand quite so dramatically.

Nope, no more candlelit baths for yours truly. Once painters and decorators West London have been in and repaired the damage so it’s as good as new, I’ll just invest in some soft-light bulbs, I think.
