Roses from my neighbour :)

Here are some gorgeous roses that were given to me by my neighbour yesterday.

There is a bit of a story behind them of course.  I was down at the shops when I received a call on my mobile from my neighbour saying there had been a bit of an accident at home. Eeeek!!

The worst thoughts ran through my head, fire, the dog ran out on the road, robbery? Who knew?!

When they said they had broken one of our windows, it was just like "Is that all?" phew!

Our neighbour was throwing a huge dog bone to her dog from her balcony. Lets just say her aim was off and instead of going straight it went a bit wonky and smashed straight through our window!!

Anyway it was all paid for and fixed within the same afternoon. Our neighbours are fairly new, so talk about breaking the ice! They seem really lovely and we are organising a dinner soon to get to know each other.

How neighbourly :)


  1. That is THE funniest story i have heard in ages!

  2. That is so funny - I was picturing a cricket ball through the window, not a bone!!! :) Gorgeous flowers! x

  3. A bone???:-) At least it was something that was easily fixed and what beautiful roses!! Enjoy. Hope you have a lovely weekend ~ Tina x
