I am SO angry !!

Why ? Because last night some thieving s**t (excuse my language, but I am ANGRY !) stole my 2 Victorian chimney pot planters from right outside our front door, whilst I was sitting not more than 10 feet away in the sitting room !!! Can you believe it ? We certainly couldn't when we opened the front door this morning and found 2 pots of bizzy lizzies sitting on the doorstep and no chimney pots anywhere in sight !

Honestly, I am stunned, sad, fed up, scared and ANGRY !!!

What really scares me is the fact that last weekend, we had a garage sale on our drive. Most of the people that came by were very nice, however, there were a few that I was a little bit suspicious of. But I didn't think anymore of it. I certainly didn't think about our very heavy chimney pots being on show. Now, of course, I am starting to think that someone who came last week had no intention of buying anything from the garage sale, but just have a good nosey around and see if there was anything worth stealing.

I did hear a clunk noise at around 11pm last night whilst I was in the sitting room, but thought it was Paul upstairs so didn't do anymore about it. How I wish I had looked out of the window, because I'm sure I would have seen the thief (or maybe even thieves as the pots would have taken 2 people to carry them), and could possibly have scared them off.

Now, of course, we are looking at getting CCTV set up all the way around the house, security lighting and automatic gates. I know that it's probably too little too late and that it's like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted, but I am now very nervous about our house being so exposed at the rear as we have fields at the back and anyone could come up the garden and break into the house without being seen. Hopefully CCTV and security lighting might at least deter someone who thinks they might be able to break in.

We've now had to clear our garages as best we can because we've got a new car coming on Wednesday and I'm scared of leaving it on show on the drive.

I am terrified of working down in the studio at night because anyone could be lurking in the field / garden / bushes unseen.

What is the world coming to when you don't feel safe in your own home anymore ?

This is awful, I hope they were just after an easy target and you need not worry too much but lighting and cctv might make you feel better.

I'm so sorry this has happened to you... I was burgled once and I spent weeks crying about it, discovering things that were gone and feeling scared, nervous and angry. What gives people the right to just walk away with our treasured possessions? I really hope you are feeling better soon... don't let them get the better of you. Your new lighting and cctv should really help. Don't worry and let it spoil your lovely summer...
Sending lots of love and BIG hugs your way

I was burgled afew years ago. The police said that the thieves had been watching my house and looked like they had stayed all weekend - eating food from my fridge and drinking my beer - I ask you! At first I was really scared, but this soon turns into anger. I swear if I'd have caught them, I would have killed them with my bear hands. The feelings do pass, I had an alarm fitted and never really thought anything about it - even though I was living by myself. With all the extra security you are having put up around the house, you will be fine. These people (if you can call them that) are opportunists, they wont come back to you home, they will just move onto some other poor sod - and the circle starts all over again. Chin up, as I said when it happened, it could have been alot worse....xxx

That's a really awful thing to happen, I cannot believe that other people are capable of doing such nasty things. I hope that your security measures bring you some feeling of peace and that you feel safe in your home again soon. Im so sorry it happened to you, sending you love

Oh I'm so sorry to hear this. What a horrid feeling it is. Maybe the cctv will be a deterrant. I hope you recover soon and the fear subsides. Emma x
