Be careful what you ask for!@@#!$!#!@

Well, here I was, in the middle of cooking dinner, and all of a sudden, this horrific noise from the front of the house.  The kids come running downstairs, "muuuummmmm, someone's gone through the front fence". 

We all ran outside and there was my poor neighbour, standing there saying, "my brakes failed, my brakes failed".  

Oh well, could be worse, no one was hurt.  She did a really good job of it though, the double gates, the side gate, two posts and the letterbox - totally obliterated.  I was only saying last week that I would like the fence painted! I should be careful what I ask for!!!@#$

Oh God Shaz, I hope she was insured and you get a spectacular new fence out of it. Thank goodness no-one was hurt!... and your kids weren't playing in front of it! A-M xx

:0 Boy that must have been scary... so sorry. Yes, I totally agree... be careful what you ask for;). So glad no one was injured, and like A-M said that your children weren't playing there.

How frightening - but as everyone has said it could have been so much worse. But I guess the upside is you'll definitely get your paint job - you've just taken the long way round. Leigh

Shaz, what a horrible thing to happen. Thank goodness no-one we hurt.

Hope that you get a nice new fence out of it :-)
