Why do we want to leave
« on: June 14, 2007, 08:02:22 am »
Reason 1:
Got woken up this morning by the garden boy. His bicycle were stolen and my garage door was broken open. These guys must have known exactly how to get into the yard ... must have known the dogs ... and must have known where is what.

Reason 2:
Jolene is in a state ... tonight and every night from now on till we leave we will have to do gaurd duty because the bastards will come back.

Reason 3:
The strike is setting everything back, our children can't go to school, you can't rely on the government to do anything.

So today I have to put up more security around the house and on the walls, and this only weeks before you leave  :tickedoff: :twoguns: :hang: :censored: :cursing: :cursing: :death:

So sorry you have to go through this.  Stay safe.

Reason 4:
Sleep depreviation due standing up all night, whenever the dogs bark. After burgalry Jolene couldn't sleep and we made turns in being awake. I do the shift from 1 till 6 in the morning.

Hi Johan. Murphy’s Law - you poor thing! We had a break in last week for the first time in 9 years. The same week hubby had to go away and I was a nervous wreck knowing they will be back. The first 2 nights I could not sleep.....

then I got this company that sends a guard to walk around your property for R 200 per night (18H00- 6H00) and slept better - now I let them come every now and then.....let me know if you want their details
 ;)
