My mum was teasing/gently mocking/outright mocking me this morning for the ‘waffle’ on my blog. Yes, I know you share my horror! After all this is the same mother whom I have PRAISED on this very blog before…not all of us can be gallivanting around Malawi or skiing in South America! Unfortunately for you the most exciting thing that happened to me this week was having friends over for dinner on Thursday night, cooking them Indian and buying flowers!
It’s a good thing I know she loves me & is allowed to gently tease (mock!) once in a while!
Anyway…I wanted to tell you what happened to us last night! the Happy Husband and I awoke to a thud at some time during the middle of the night. While I was still trying to figure out what it was that had woken me, HH whispered “there’s someone outside”. For those who haven’t been to our house, we live in a church property on site and there’s about 1.5metres of play area between our house and the church hall and this play area runs the length of our property/garden and the church. We had been warned that this has previously been used as a thoroughfare but had never experienced it. Thankfully I was still half asleep and HH realising that this was likely to COMPLETELY FREAK ME OUT (I already don’t like this house at night) managed to pat me back to sleep while he worked out what was happening. It seems someone (assuming a drunken teenager, must less worrying than a psychotic madman!) ran through the backyard, put all the play equipment onto it’s side and then jumped the fence to the main road – which is what we woke up to hear. It doesn’t seem like much but after the break in last year, and the general feeling of vulnerability living in this house I CANNOT WAIT TO MOVE!! (and have an alarm installed at our new house)!
On that front, had a much more promising day house hunting in Brunswick this morning. A house was even passed in at auction – very reassuring (although probably not great for the owners).
This house was asking $452 and only got to $410. Not sure what it will sell for now.
Before I leave you, let me share some gorgeous pics I took on my (hopeless) phone camera today when I babysat for my lovely friends. We made cupcakes and was it fun!!!
