Well I'll start with the positive...
I wanted to show you what I sent to the lovely Justine for the Button Swap! You can see her blog about it here - Emma Bear Forever
This was what I sent...
(There were some button earrings in the little black pouch, and a Cath Kidston mini purse in the bag with buttons)
Which included my first ever felt lavender heart - yep I had never made one before! I was proud and very glad that it was being sent to the lovely Justine! It wasn't perfect (I couldn't work out how to end my slip stitch neatly) but I hope she still loves it, as it was my first!
Another first was these little button gift tags - I had the idea and just went for it, I hope she liked them!
So onto the negative and why I have had a terrible morning...
Well firstly I'm still ill, but that's the least of my worries. When the fiance went out to leave for work he came back in to tell me that my car had been smashed in.
I went outside to our rear car park to find both my windscreens smashed (the rear one smashed completely in), both my number plates ripped off and my wing mirror bent back (it's electric so probably won't work now).
All for no good reason - nothing was stolen, not even my radio.
A neighbours car that was in front of mine had also been smashed in - quite a lot worse than mine, with his doors ripped open and bent and wiper blades pulled off.
So, I had to talk to the police (a neighbour had already called to report it, as she says she heard 'shots' but there's nothing to suggest that) and then call my insurance company.
And guess what... as it counts as 'criminal damage' and not 'theft' I have to pay a £250 excess to get it fixed and I lose all my no claims... that is unless the police find out who did it... which I doubt they will.
I shouldn't have gloated that my MOT repairs only cost me £30, it came back to haunt me!
*Sigh* So now I'm sat at home, feeling very ill (so much for my plan of sleeping off my cold today) waiting for a forensics team to come, and then the garage to pick up my car and hopefully drop off a courtesy car.
Plus I'm all alone until tomorrow morning as the fiance is off in Brighton doing some exciting filming of a friend's collection in a fashion show! Any ideas of what I can do to take my mind off things or cheer me up, whilst being stuck at home sick?!
