12.30 am, the alarm went off…. it's piercing and lights flash all over the house.
I jumped out of bed and raced out to the studio….
All was quiet.
The security company rang…. I never remember the password.!!!
Then back to bed… suddenly, the dogs were barking… They rarely bark, so back out to the studio….
Back to bed and more barking dogs….
This time I slept downstairs and had all the lights on outside… Lionel, kept running back and forth in an agitated state…. looking at the studio.
In the mean time, my husband slept through the lot while I dealt with a possible intruder….!!
It could have been a person, a possum or a Koala.
I slept on the chair downstairs all night. !! fun.

Having watched the movies when young our family catch cry has always been ‘DON’T OPEN THE DOOR’. We would shout at the screen as the young maiden placed her hand to the door and we all KNEW the MONSTER was lurking outside.
Yes men! they sleep through everything…so turn on all the lights but STAY INDOORS.
Ah, to be able to sleep like a husband. I was up one night and forgot I had closed the bedroom door. As I was headed back to bed with my head down, trying not to step on the cat, I ran headfirst into the door while simultaneously kicking it and about knocked my self out. When I opened the door, the hub was still snoring! The cat jumped on the bed and kneaded it a couple times and he woke up!!
I have this image…..a lady in bright orange pajamas and slippers in a rocking chair, rocking back and forth, shotgun in her lap, ready to shout ‘get arf ma properdy!’
Ok maybe without the shot gun…
(I think I’ve been watching too much Beverly Hillbillies)
OR I’m delirious from lack of sleep because of my SNORING HUSBAND last night!
Oh what a thread you have opened Pam!
No rocking chair or orange pj’s….. but I did have stick…what the heck I was going to do with it I don’t know.
Yes, I asked Keith this morning if he heard me fighting off the burglars….
He said Yes…!!!
I wonder if it has anything to do with that earthquake that hit northern S.A. or maybe it was aliens?
Could have been… you never know.
