Welcome home

Last night I got home from work and started to cook my dinner, when I looked towards the laundry & garage doors - something wasn't right.

Half of the door to the garage was on the floor.

We'd been burgled.

My immediate reaction was one of confusion, as nothing downstairs had been disturbed - apart from the destroyed door, the window they smashed to get in, and slight damage to my flatmates car. However, as I went upstairs and looked into our bedrooms, I was beginning to get angry. My flatmates room looked like a whirlwind had gone through it. My room had also been looked through, but thank God, nothing had been taken from my room. However, my flatmate was not so lucky. Her jewellery was taken, as was her new digital camera and her money box.

The police came, however the fingerprint people had already gone home, so they should be there now, as I'm typing this. Hopefully they find what they need.

Needless to say, I didn't sleep too well - the slightest noise had me jumping through the roof : )

Sorry to hear that Paula. I know how unsettling break ins can make you feel in a place that you should feel so comfortable - home. I once found a home invader in the house when I was at home. Can you believe that?

Glad for you it wasn't worse.
 
Thanks for that Bruce. The unsettling thing is that they took most of the stuff from my flat mate's wardrobe - and they would have seen her uniforms - she's a Police Officer!

It's all settling down now though.
