the night before...
Good morning.. I can't thank everyone enough for their kind comments yesterday.xxxx
I think it was about 8.30pm last night when tiredness finally caught up with me. I think after the shock & acceptance at what has happened to us will come anger..
the front of our house is covered in black flame marks that stretch up past the bedroom window.. I still can't believe how lucky we all were that the bike didn't explode & our windows didn't get blown out.. there were quite a few cars parked in the street as well which had to be moved to safety.. things could have been a whole lot worse.
The bike belonged to our next door neighbour.. his insurance company are refusing to paying for any of our damage as 1) the bike was parked on a public highway & 2) no one has been arrested & charged with the crime.. this is where the anger is creeping in..
A local youngster has been bragging that he 'did' it... I was speechless that he could do that..
The glass in our windows is being held together with giant pieces of sticky tape that a glass firm came & put on for us & will ring on Monday to make an appointment to come & replace the glass in 2 windows.. we are responsible for sorting the front door & damaged walls. In 21 years we have never had an insurance claim against the house & now we have to pick up the pieces because of this youngster's actions.
I am lost for words today that someone could just come along & knock our lives out of kilter yesterday & get away with it..... & think it's funny & brags to his friends.. what a strange world we live in today... how do I explain to my boys that this was someone's idea of a good laugh?
Sorry for sounding off on my blog! Promise to call back later with some crafting.
I truly wish everyone a lovely weekend.xxx
