The police said the fire was started in a car from mice eating wires that was parked next to the house.Their is a nice plague here at the moment.When I was a child the house across the road from me burnt down.Bought back some scarey memories.

That's terrible, I hope everyone's ok Mark. I hope you didn't have flashbacks. They should do something about the mice, that's disgusting

Mark...That’s so possible..In my other house, the mice ate through the chord of my micro wave and when I put it on..their was a bright light and it blew my power off...

Oh Yes mice plague...we have them everywhere here...I am thankful that they are the field mice and not the sewage mice that live in the city...

Mark...Please try to distract those triggering thoughts if you can..with something you like doing that you need to concentrate on while doing it...if that makes sense....

When you lie down tonight to sleep..if your mind starts getting chatty with you about today...could you try to listen to a Dan Jones Sleep story...If your minds wanders away from his words and story..just gently acknowledge those thoughts then bring your mind back to the story...he has a soothing voice...just thought I would mention what works for me a lot of the time....

Just listening to music

I hope you, your kids and everyone else in the street are ok Mark.

What type of music do you like, and which bands and singers?

I woke a few times last night after some nightmares bringing back a few scarey memories.I hope the kids are ok as I know these things can effect you long term.A bit of a weird feeling this morning for me.
