Student update..... I had a call from the college on Friday & things looked hopefully however on Tuesday we had 3 lads in who stopped in store & showed us their bare behinds.... 'thank you deer'.... I thought!!!
They then sat on a £1,250 sofa like that!! I wish I hadn't complained as it just getting worse.
Now is that frost on my very large living room window?????
No!!!! I was sat happily watching Coronation street & eating a very nice lemon sponge pudding last night when there was a loud bang...... frozen with fear I turned the TV off & waited ....nothing... I ran upstairs to look out the window & there was no one outside. I came back to the living room & heard a odd sound.... like running water. Taking a peep through the curtains my worse fears were confirmed..... the very large window had shattered. I ran back upstairs & there was a large gang of children just up the road cheering & jumping up & down. Their ages.... about 8-10 years old!!!
I called 999 & it took about 15 mins for the police to arrive by which time the children were gone!
Going outside this is what had done the damage.......
I can't believe I didn't hear them come into the garden.... it must have been thrown at close range because it's really heavy.
And what did the police say????...... Did you see them do it?? uuummm no I had the curtains drawn!!
The gang appeared again so they went off to talk to them.
On their return I was told the children said they didn't do it....... well that's ok then.... at least we now know they're not stupid!!!
OH suggested that they take finger prints from the slab & the gate but they didn't think this was a good idea. I asked who would pay for the damage..... and the answer...well us!!!
They did offer to get someone out to sort it but as I pointed out I don't have the money. He then said the window could go at any time so I had a terrible night sleep waiting for the crash of glass.
This is what I found this morning.....
It's not as bad as we thought last night, at least it's only one pain of glass broke. Thank goodness for safety glass & double glazing.
Now just have to wait for the community police office to come today to give us a crime number so we can try & claim on insurance & a glazier.
This is the 2nd time it's happened in 6 months..... the last time someone was trying to get away from some thugs who were beating him up. He was put through our porch window with a screw driver in his head. The shock of this made my very ill cat even worse so we had to to put him to sleep that day. Last night all the painful memories came back.
As some of you know we were planning on moving as OH hates living here..... we've just decided to stay here until the credit crunch is over but now we're back to square one!!!
Anyone want to buy a house?????
