- Wedding: May 2013
Our house got broken into today while I was in town with my brother. I feel sick. I was only gone for an hour.
When we came back my brother noticed that the window that the cat uses to get in and out was wide open (usually you can’t tell it’s open, it’s only a jar.) He then laughed and said the cat must have been in a massive hurry to get in.
I unlocked the door, walked in and saw that the back door was wide open. We then walked into the lounge, where we saw that one of the conservatory windows were wide open as well.
First thing I noticed was that my laptop had moved from where I had it (plugged in on the lazy-boy) to under the tv cabinet. I also noticed that FI’s PS3 disc draw was wide open, but the game disc was still sitting in the console. It didn’t look like anything had been taken, but the more I looked around, the more unsecure I felt. I started shaking which then turned into sobs. It’s a horrible feeling, just knowing that someone has been into our home uninvited. My brother called my mum, she then came over and called the police. I couldn’t even speak. The police officer wanted to talk to me, so she could send a report and have someone come over in the next 48hours to do finger prints, etc. While I attempted to talk to her, mum phoned FI, who was at work.
It was only after we got off the phone that my brother asked where FI’s ps3 controller was, I didn’t have a clue, but my brother said it was nowhere to be found. First thing that was taken. I then noticed that my tablet wasn’t ontop of the dvd cabinet. Second thing. My brother then discovered (while looking at the PS3) that they had taaken the case for the game that was in the console.. Third. And then finally, needing a smoke, I went over to the bench where my tobacco and rolley machine was.. and they’d taken that too. Seriously?
You know what’s hilarious though? The tablet had stopped working about 3 days ago, wasn’t able to charge and was dead-er than a door-nail. The PS3 controller is usless without the charger (unless they’ve got a cable.) And I would abolsutely love to see their faces when they open the game case and find no game there. As the for the tobacco, I needed to quit anyway. On the plus side, the reason I was out was to show my step dad the wedding band we had chosen for FI, so that was in my handbag at the time. If I hadn’t decided to show him, the wedding band would have been sitting on the kitchen bench. I’m really not bothered over the things that were taken, it’s the intrusive-ness of horrible people climbing through a window into my home, with the worst intentions.
The police officer knew straight away that me coming up the drive way must have scared them off, and it was lucky that I turned up when I did. I agree, it could have been a lot worse, but it doesn’t change the sick-to-my-stomach feeling.
Sorry for the long post hive, I just needed to get all of this out of my system. I’m at my mum’s house until FI finishes work, and then we’re going to back home and see if anything else is missing – Might have missed stuff while I was too busy shaking.
