Don't know if you can swear

on blogs but if not.........
What the F*** is wrong with this society we live in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This morning I was woken at 6a.m by loud bangs & a crash. I thought my landlord had come in early to print, they often do.
Got out of bed couldn't see or hear anything. Waited until 7.30a.m when it was getting light & someone appears to have gone on a rampage with bricks & put all the windows in of the print shop next door!!!!!!!
They also attacked the tool shop, & the corner shop. My landlord's print shop is untouched, but then when the alarms go off here I have to be peeled off my bedroom ceiling!!! N.A.S.A ain't got nowt on my landlord.....
I contacted the police straight away & they haven't deemed fit to show. The owners haven't turned up this morning & normally they are here at 8am. People had been walking by for over an hour & not one had reported it.......
The windows are in a terrible state & the stock is not secure. I have no means of boarding it up. I am sat tight hoping someone will show soon.
I AM NOT going to my Dad's as planned as I just can't face coming home to a broken window. It got put in two years ago & it was traumatic then. My window is quite big & high off the ground, it features as a picture in an earlier post in October. I was looking forward to seeing my dad's Australia pictures but I just daren't leave my belongings. My burglar alarm goes off when it fancys & I have been in trouble over it a few times but what good would it do anyhow. You can't replace 9 years worth of things I have had to work bloody hard for...... Not a chance I want to take.
Oh well, perhaps I might get some crafting done but I can't settle until I know the shop is sorted out.....

EDIT TO THIS POST AT 10.46AM
The owner have now turned up, he was unaware of the crime when he drove up. Still no police presence, & it seems the Photographer across the street have also been hit.... They have got the glaziers here so everyone is diving over for help...
No one can understand why they haven't touched my landlords. Below me he has 3 large windows & a door, all glass not one smashed...

Oh dear, Paula - how awful for you. It is a creepy feeling to have something like that happen. I went in to my office on a weekend once (after closing time) and someone had taken a sledge hammer to it and to other shops in the area - I was so angry, then I started to think maybe the sledge hammer person was still in the building and got the REAL creeps as I was alone. He wasn't there, but it was not a nice day. I trust the police have been to you now and that the cleanup/securing of your goods has begun. Wouldn't it be great if they could catch the vandals. Take care.

Oh Girl how awful it must have been. Hope they catch the ones who did this. But the police didn't even bother to come so I'm afraid the ones who did this are go out free. Well glad you are OK though

Oh Paula - what a terrible thing to happen and it has totally spoilt what you had planned for your weekend.

Really can't understand why the police didn't come straight over - makes you wonder sometimes doesn't it???????

Take care

Paula I'm so sorry for you to have all of this madness happening around you. You poor thing.. It must be so awful..Can't believe the police were so slow in coming..
I'm sorry you didn't get to your dad's, maybe next weekend..
I had a look at that window, it's lovely.. you have it decorated beautifully, It would be terrible for it to get smashed...
I hope you can settle at something today.. Maybe as you say a bit of craft.. (that's what I'd try) take care babe..
