After-rock……

As I sit here at 2am I can’t help but think about all that has happened this last week.
Most of you know, we came home to find a kid had thrown a large rock through our window a few days ago.

Upsetting?

Yes, very.

Scary?

Yes, very.

Surprising?

For me, unfortunately, after a while of thinking on it…. not hugely. Somthing I did’nt even realise until I saw my guy Noah’s, reaction to the same event.
What surprised me more than anything was how complacent I had become.

I’ve lived here about a year now, before that I lived in the the house literally opposite this one for about 9 years.
So, thats a decade of living in this immediate area.
In the entire 10 years, I think this has to be the first time this has happened to me.
Thats not to say it should have, but to a lot of people not so far away that would be very surprising.

The good side of this is, hopefully, in one year we will be moving home into a apartment complex, with the name “Valhala” which I cannot help but smile over, and this incident, scary and upsetting as it is, just gave us the motivating push we needed really.

    Turning things into a positive… that’s the best way to deal with it, Barry!
