Have just seen a police car pull up outside thehouse and made the usual joke about them finding me when the policewoman came to my door.
My heart missed a beat and i felt sick as Jack is out at his friends.
My legs went to jelly as i opened the door and she gave me the usual 'there's nothing to worry about'.
It turns out that my neighbour's flat was broken into on Monday night/Tuesday morning and she was just doing a house to house.
Apparently they had cars and sniffer dogs up here right outside my window and i slept through the lot.
Whoever is staying in the flat(as far as i know the neighbours who own it are away as their car and caravan aren't outside) had gone to bed and left the door unlocked.They woke to find someone else in the flat.
It's a bit of a worry being on my own with the kids and i will be double checking all the doors and windows are locked before i go to bed.
