The Audacious Burgler
Hodmandod Senior has spent the afternoon changing the lock on the front door and has bought a steering column lock to go on the car. I have stopped all the credit cards and reported the loss to the police who are going to visit on Tuesday. Apparently it is all too common. It seems incredible to me that someone would dare to come into a house, albeit quite easily, which was obviously so fully occupied - but it only takes a minute and if caught I guess you can just run - fast.
I had so much in that bag - my purse with all my cards, my keys, small things that meant a lot to me, but worse of all my little filofax where I keep a lot of my notes on things that occur to me and my addresses...all gone. That filofax has been with me to Greenland, Europe and Patagonia with no mishaps, only to be stolen from under my nose in my own house. Ah well, it could be worse, I tell myself. It is unsettling though. I have done no writing at all - a very unproductive day.
