Burgled

In the early hours of yesterday morning, Gordon's home was burgled. Entry was gained through the rear of the house; they found his keys and legged it with his car as well as 2 TVs, 2 clocks, laptop, cash left out for the cleaner, kitchen house phone handset (must have thought it was a mobile phone?) and the projector which we use for our Blue Cross talkssmiley - grr. They tried to wrench the large TV off the wall in the lounge but failed. The police were thorough and found his car quite quickly, that's still with SOCO but hopefully he'll get it back today.

I am counting our blessings that no-one in the house was hurt, especially Snoopy who is a Jack Russell, I don't know if they *knew* him, or that just because he didn't bark or attack them, they left him alone.

Suffice to say that new security measures are being put into place, this was Gordon's first burglary and he intends it being the last.

I am still upset at the thought of what might have been and last night was scared to go to bed for the first time since I've been living alone. It's not a nice feeling, I hope it soon goes.

Plume-gate.

Assuming you survive the initial radioactive fallout, would you want to live in a post-apocalyptic world?

Ouch...

Yesterday while in Tescos with my mother, I got rammed from behind by a dot.com trolleysmiley - grr the pusher didn't even apologise. Luckily for me it wasn't my already-injured leg, but still, I am smiley - bruisedand smiley - wah

I felt so awful I went to the checkout, where I came over a bit faint. I can't fault the first-aiders who attended to me, but I really could have done without another bad leg, when I only had one good leg smiley - sadface

I'm at the smiley - doctor at 11.40am, so I can still make the 3 OAP Homes visits this afternoon with Gordon & Snoopysmiley - dogwhich will no doubt cheer me up.
