Roses and Memories

Wow, it's just been bucketing down here and have just put a bucket under the airconditioner vent as there is a small steady stream coming from it!!!
Fran and I headed out this morning as I was after some shoes, we ended up going to two shops before I found the shoes that I had been looking for and luckily for me they were my size as they were the only ones in the shop. We checked out a couple of the cheap shops nearby and grabbed some lunch and then she dropped me home.  The mail had been and I had missed a registered letter so had to go up to the post office. I had to wait until after 4 p.m. to make sure it had been taken back to there. I got back home about 5 minutes before hubby came home. We went out to tea at the hotel, on our own this time as our friends had a meeting to go to. When we got back home, our neighbour met us in the driveway. Someone had broken into his house. Smashed a hole through his glass door out the back. It is that really thick glass. They'd discovered they still couldn't get in as there were bolts top and bottom but they managed to lever the bottom and then yank the door right off the bolts. They stole his wife's jewellery and also two lap tops and I'm not sure what else.  They also left things, an I-pad, e-reader and an expensive camera. So they couldn't have been in the house too long.  It has been very windy all day, so there have been noises on and off from things banging around. I hadn't noticed any suspicious noises, so they might have broken in while we were out at tea. I'd really only been home a couple of hours in the afternoon.
Adrian drove our son into town and then stopped to get some fuel and saw two police officers on pushbikes and spoke to them. They told him there had been several home robberies in our area tonight and they were looking around for the people. It sounds very organised. I hope they get them.
Anyway, after all that excitement I still managed to sit down and make a card and here it is.
