I had nearly finished clearing my desk - which was a big task let me tell ya, when I heard some commotion coming from the back of the house.

I got up to have a look and found Sean (husband) and a Policeman running around our backyard with torches. Hello!!!! What was going on?

I went to the door and Sean said "stay inside!". Great!!!! Now I was worried.

The Police were chasing this dude who had earlier assaulted a Police Officer and he was carrying a knife and the dude had fled on foot.

He apparently had run through our yard and jumped the fence. They couldn't find any trace of him. We were all a little shaken then and made sure everything was locked up. The poor kids couldn't settle, either could I for that matter. So hence - I packed up pretty quick smart and got ready for bed.

I only found out this morning while we were all sitting down having breakfast that the Police had knocked at the front door and ran through the house to make sure everyone was ok. Josh said that he heard the police yell "come out or we'll spray you!".
I had a bit of a giggle to myself then - If I had come out of my craft room at that time I would have been sprayed I reckon - LOL!!!!! I was in the middle of getting a bug that had flown up my nose..........that would look good wouldn't it? - just imagine the police bursting into my craft room and here I was chasing a bug up my nose.........LOL!!! I can see the funny side of it NOW but at the time.........NUH!!!!!

So there you have it - my attempt at creating - just plenty of chaos instead.

All is well though - that is the main thing. Hope they caught the dude.

Happy creating over the weekend everyone.

Sandie said...

Hi Lyn, yeah just as well there was a funny side.

Didn't hear anything from the Police. May read about it this week in the local paper.

Far out Sandie, that was a bit hairy scary, but you did make me laugh with your comment about the bug and getting sprayed, you could have sprayed them back with Glimmermists ROFL. Glad it's over and yeah, hope they caught the ratbag too. x x x
