Intruding festive spirits!


















Normally I don't jump up when Father Christmas slides down our chimney, it is a very noisy and messy approach, but since it's Christmas it's expected.

But last night my jump was justified. Whilst watching TV around 1am a metal shatter frightened the living daylights out of me, this was followed by my brother pressing the panic button, resulting in the alarm siren waking the neighborhood.

And for the first time in many years this was unfortunately not a false alarm.

Luckily the festive intruders did not get into the house and no one was harmed, except our wall, and the accompanying barbwire. So after 2 hours of park and property search, security statements and a very wound up family discussion about the houses' security it was back to bed...starting Christmas with a little scare this year!
