Night ruined

Went to my daughters for a family gathering in the garden . It started of sunny then got cold the lite the chimney so I sat well away , I was really enjoying it . Then the barbecue got fired up ,and a petrol smell wafted my way ,you can guess the rest , breathing really bad ,had to go home . It was really scary thought I'd need a ambulance , took a few hours to relax my breathing . Scary . Yet another night ruined .

Hope you enjoy the next one more , se ding you hugs.

Oh dear I know how you felt I've just had visitors and I had to come in and away from the smoke in the end, it was quite funny because they thought if they stood in front of me I'd be fine but I was freezing and worried my oxygen would blow up!
