You'll never guess what I found out this morning about the young arsonist.. he's been charged with 25 previous accounts of damaging cars & vehicles in the area & each time he has been given a slap on the wrist & 20 hours community service.. the court was told how he comes from a broken home & has had a poor upbringing by a mother that is in & out of court herself for stealing & dealing drugs.. :(
My daughter got this shot of the bike from upstairs just before it was taken away last night.. you can see how close we were to the bike.. we've been left with a lovely mess!

Luckily for everyone the bike fell over.. even though the flames still went 20 feet into the air, they also went across the road as well.. this bike was parked between parked cars... we have all been very lucky..
Surprise, surprise I struggled to get off to sleep last night.... my 10yr old kept following me around like a shadow so we both had a little stamping time.. 1.30am ssssshh! I so hope we can get back in routine tonight!

It was a pretty difficult day yesterday wading through all the insurance business & giving statements to the police etc.. last night I felt like giving in.. I wanted to move house, move away.. my 4yr old over heard me & was sad at the idea.. it made me realise I could either let this whole incident get to me or deal with it & move on! so I art journaled & feel a lot better today :)
Thank You for calling..xx I've picked up a copy of Craft Stamper this morning in town & had a quick flick through.. wow! what a gorgeous issue :) I know I won't get a chance to look through in peace until tonight.. roll on!!
Thank You for being there.. Gez..xxx
