Having staggered indoors with a bag of shopping- took a little rest and a drink on this fine hot day,then proceeded to unpack and put away. Suddenly the upstairs smoke alarm started off its hooting. For a moment I was perplexed- was it a vehicle out side reversing? No definitely indoors- the upstairs one. No smoke - not fire- so what caused it to trigger. Then I wondered - I was engaged in opening a tray of Beef Medallions [ASDA 'Whoops' half price- three good steak type meals there for less than 80p a go]then individually wrapping in cling film as individual portions. So could it be a waft of protein carried upstairs to start it off do you think?
it's usually a blockage of some sort or it needs cleaning, i have mains ones and have to take covers off and get vacuum in there every 6 months or so. obviously battery ones will give a low life alarm.
Forum Member -The moth -it got wrapped too - good protein there. Adman & Lotvic 'Low Life' life just gives an occasional 'Tweet' This was strident, for about 10 or less seconds and as I dont tweet or twit - the assumed implication does not apply- low life indeed ;-}
