Im wirtting this post today with anger and sadness because weve just returned from a long weekend in Kilkenny (for my friends wedding I mentioned in previous posts) and we found that we've been robbed. The back door was kicked in. It wasnt the best door in the world and had suffered water damage from the wet and cold weather we had over last winter. We knew the door wasnt secure and weve paid the price. We're already looking at getting burglar proof security doors. Ireland its seems is a wash with this sort of thing now...
In fairness we got off lightly. My laptop and expensive camera was with us but Steve is sad to see his 42" flat screen is gone and im sad to see the bulk of my jewellery taken some of which had huge sentimental value.
Its tough when this happens because you try to live life thinking things like this wont happen to you and its really deflating when all the media and scare mongering is proven right.We'll just have to move forward and look at improving our own personal security at the house now. Big Steel doors and perhaps an alarm system are most definitely on the agenda.
