A large Royal Mail van was delivering a parcel to a neighbour and when he started to drive off again, he completely smashed and drove over my favourite mini planter, and knocked another one out of the way.

I heard a loud bang from the other side of my flat, and by the time I got to the window he was gone.

Pictures below:

As you can see it was absolutely smashed to pieces and the hyancinth bulb was flattened. I had to throw most away, but saved one bit after a neighbour suggested using the meerkats,(one with a leg below the knee missing) could be pushed in to a pot as a decoration instead.

So I did. Shame about the hyacinth as I think it was the only pink one I had. I have plenty of blue ones.

I have written a complaint, and will send it off late today when I go out.

Plus, one of the local kids decided he would try and dig up my new Buddliea.

Shopping list:
Barbed wire
electric fencing
razor wire
cheap but sturdy fence (to nail kids to)
Prison searchlights

Might find some more measures while searching around. If I catch that Royal Mail man, I may nail him to the fence also.

Its awful. Kid,s !!!!! But dont give up.

I certainly won't be giving up. If I can put up with anti-scoial behaviour from someone i.e harassment, thrteats and danmage to property, I can cope with a few kids.

I just need to wait and hear back from Royal Mail now.
