Happy Valentines day

We got some emails from companies using Valentines as an excuse to offer a discount. From Alfa Accesories a suggestion we might need some new mats or a 4C sweatshirt. No discount though.

I can beat that. I got an email from CCH who provide tax and accounting software services and crap like that offering a special valentines discount.

Late Valentine's present from local lowlife.



We went to London for the day yesterday and had just reached the M25 when the neighbour rang to say the burglar alarm had gone off and she had found the back door kicked in. Needless to say she 999'd immediately and when the police arrived they found the house empty.

We got back about 7pm having decided to at least visit the first of the planned exhibitions and found nothing taken, in fact it appeared nothing had been disturbed. The culprit appears to have jumped the fence into the neighbour's garden and the assumption is they legged it through their side gate and off down the street when she came to investigate the alarm.

Currently the door is secured with a couple of six inch nails and similar sized screws and cannot be used. This was, of course, the normal exit door when leaving and setting the burglar alarm but luckly the alarm company suggested checking using the front door as they are normally wired up in such a way as they will allow the alarm to set using the internal exit door (that is exit from the room with the alarm box when going to bed). This proved to be the case with ours but re-entry does trigger the alarm so the neighbours are going to know every time we come home. Worse than setting the locks on the Giulietta.

The insurance company will get the door and frame repaired/replaced and I will have to pay the £50 excess (thank you villain). However the insurance is due for renewal on the 1st March and, no doubt, they will rapidly adjust the premium so more additional cost to me all for no gain to anyone other than the repairers and insurers.

Good shoe print on the door but how many pairs of, what are according to the police officers, Nike size 9s are there likely to be locally so no chance of identifying the culprit.

Procrastination is the thief of time
