This is certainly not what I thought I would be doing this morning. We were woken up around 6.30pm to a loud bang, not sure what it was hubs went to investigate, looked out of the front window...nope nothing there, he was just coming back when he saw a light shining in our garden...strange...looked through the window and two young lads were trying to open our gate, luckily it's very stiff and gets stuck....Hubs banged on the window and they ran off.
When we went to investigate, this is what the loud bang was
We phoned the police and they came out to have a look around and arranged for us to go to the local police station to make a report (luckily there is a lovely policewoman who speaks perfect English). So we were in the police station for 1.1/2 hours this morning - whilst we were there the telephone rang and it was our neighbour reporting an incident..... I am not sure yet exactly what happened but it seems the two lads had rung my neighbours door bell at 6.30am this morning asking if they had any petrol, obviously they hadn't so it looks like they came to try and get some from us, how they were going to get the petrol out we have no idea and why they smashed the window, we have no idea.... but on the upside, my neighbours had seen these two lads pushing a car down the road and had taken their registration number - so we are hopeful that they will be caught and dealt with.
But if they are caught it won't help us in any way, we still have to repair the window and we are probably going to have to try and find one in a scrap yard as the excess on our insurance is over 100 Euros, and if we claim we will lose our no claims bonus....it may be cheaper just to repair it ourselves if we can.
Oh, and we were wondering what they used to break the window...until we found this
(That's glass in the corner)
They used one of my planters from the side of our house to smash the window!!! Talk about adding insult to injury!!
So I have one Jack Russell for sale - but be warned he is not very good at guarding!!
