just when I thought my life was overflowing with excitement, a tree came down next door. Out I go to alert the neighbours, and it became apparent we had a problem. While Glenn rang the SES and then Belconnen Police Station, I flagged traffic down. Traffic which goes around our street way to fast at the best of times. The tree was cutting off the whole left side.
To the D#$%head idiots (sorry to my US friends, that is less offensive here) who speed up when they saw the wet crazy lady flagging them down (otherwise known as me). Thank you. Your contribution when you crashed into said tree helped Glenn and the neighbours and some very generous passers by to get the tree off the street. Too bad about the damage, which could have been avoided, to your cars.
To the Belconnen Police station who did not even bother with our address if we did not need an ambulance for the two cars who had crashed into the tree, thanks for nothing.
My husband, our neighbour and the neighbour across the road who took to the tree with saws, pure bulk and then rakes. My heros. No one else will crash in my front yard tonight. I now need a glass of wine.
