OMG you will not believe this!

wow I have just had the most surreal thing happen to me.....I was in the post office ..posting things, as you do. when 2 guys in masks came in ..1 had an axe and 1 had what looked like a starter pistol! I mean i am not a gun expert but i have seen a couple and i knew it wasnt one i recognised.......anyway they were yelling to hand over the money etc, and the guy with the 'gun' was pointing it at the clerk who just seconds before had been chatting away while serving me...the other robber who had the Axe was smashing stuff up and making lots of noise....no doubt to intimidate everyone there...he was doing an ok job of it....!

tbh when i first saw the guy come round the counter with the 'gun' and the mask on, for whatever reason i thought it was just a bad joke...! it wasnt until the guy with the axe smashed the security camera that i realised this was no joke.....my heart started to race...all i could think of was not to do anything anything stupid or my kids may be left without a mother. ..funny how having kids changes your thoughts and perpespective on everything ..isnt it! so I was quiet and I didnt do 'anything stupid' I just watched and tried to remember as much detail as possible.

so this carries on and they manage to get some money from the tills, half way through one of the clerks manages to push the alarm which i think must have locked the tills down or something...as at this point, lucky for all concerned they decide to leg it. obviously i am fine and no one got seriously hurt....this is true..this happened.........so this was my morning.....how was yours?

I can honestly say mine was not as stressful - so far. Nor have I ever been in quite that situation (although I did get chased by a youth gang in NYC once).

I did a couple or three tags using your Fright Night kit. The Boo Kitty one turned out too cute. I love the googley eyed bats and spiders!
