Oh Dear! Am I in for some bad luck?

I have been very busy the last few days so have not had time to continue on my mission to get my house organised once again.  I have been doing little bits and pieces.  Like unpacking our luggage from our vacation two weeks ago, that were still sitting on the floor in our rooms.  But I wanted to check in and do a post as I am really enjoying my new life as a blogger.

We have this massive mirror.  It is so big that it takes two to three men to lift and move it.  So we had somebody in to hang it when we moved into this house as I can not lift it and it needed to be hung quite high, so had somebody in to hang it for us.  Well during the night we were all awoken to this almighty bang.  My son came in early saying we had to come and see and not to be mad "he didn't do it" LOL

Downstairs we went and we found our massive mirror, smashed and on the floor.   I don't have a photo of the initial mess, but here is the mirror once we have picked it up and it's leaning against the wall.

My beautiful broken mirror

Not only is the mirror all smashed but the frame is broken too.  I can't believe it, I absolutely love this mirror and it was just a beautiful, striking piece to have hanging on the wall as it was so big.

Now I need to know.....  I know if you break a mirror it's 7 years bad luck!  I didn't hang the mirror, nor did I drop the mirror, so does that mean that I don't get those 7 years of bad luck?  Do you actually have to break the mirror yourself to get the 7 years bad luck?  If superstition is correct and I get the bad luck, with the size of that mirror, its going to be a massive 7 years, LOL.

So there the mirror sits, I can't move it as it's too heavy and some of those pieces of broken mirror are massive so I am going to have to get somebody in to collect the mirror and maybe take it away or take it somewhere to have the frame repaired and a new mirror put in.  This is going to be a very expensive exercise to have it collected and repaired.  I felt like calling the people who came and hung it to let them know as I kind of feel like it's their fault.   We have had that mirror hanging in our home for 10 or so years and it has never fallen down!  Anyway no point crying over spilt milk (or a broken mirror, LOL)

I have a new little thing that I picked up yesterday that I can't wait to share with you.  I will share that with you tomorrow.

Oh no, I am sorry about your mirror, its a gorgeous piece too, is there noway it could be repaired?

As for your bad luck, I think you have to actually, physically break the mirror yourself, well thats what I said when one of my mirrors just broke! ;)
