Sienna's words #11

'I can smell rainbow but I can't see him'


'Oh Mummy, I've always wanted a carrot like this.. super juicy'


(literally just put her coat on and shouts) 'Oh my god I'm getting so sweaty already!' (and she takes it off)


Warren: 'Ready... steady....'

SiSi: 'I'm ready but I'm not steady...'

That time we got broken into

I'm not sure if I've ever touched on it before, but when we lived in Bristol, we got broken into and it was one of the scariest times. When Warren was recently away for 4 nights for his stag do, I found it pretty scary being in the house with the two girls on my own. I kept reliving the break in and panicking about what I'd do if it happened while the girls were here and how we'd get out.

Here's what happened in February 2012...


I was home in the afternoon, at around 2pm I decided to do a workout, like I normally do on any days off.. I was halfway through when I heard a loud bang on our front door. I never answer the door when I'm on my own and being halfway through my workout, I chose to ignore it... hoping they'd think no-one was in and they'd go away.

A split second later, I heard voices and decided to look out our lounge window to see who was out there. I jumped back as there was a guy stood with his back to me leaning against the window. I could hear him swearing and at first I thought he was on the phone and just angry. 

My thought process was; He's on the phone, he got angry about something, he thinks no-one is in so he's kicked the door in frustration. If I leave him to calm down, he might just go away. 

I picked up my phone just incase, I was about to ring Warren just to tell him what had happened, when I heard another massive bang on the front door but I could see the guy was still at the window, so it clicked there was more of them. I open our door to the hallway so I could see the front door and screamed when I saw our front door was half way off it's hinges and 3 more guys were kicking it down. 

I just remember screaming 'WHAT THE F*CK ARE YOU DOING', 'GET THE F*CK OUT MY HOUSE'. I thought if they realised someone was home it would scare them away but they just kept kicking. I knew I had to run and luckily, I knew our back door was open.. I ran as fast as I could to the back door, kicked the tumble dryer and rubbish out the way and flung the door open. By this point, I could hear they had got in and were coming through the house towards me.

Like in a scary movie, you would think it would never happen in real life but I slipped over when I got out the door and could hear them getting closer. I was so panicky, I thought they were going to get me. I knew I just had to run but it felt like I couldn't go quick enough. I felt like I was literally running for my life.
