We returned from a lovely workshop at the National Park to find that the house had been burgled--totally ransacked. I must admit that one might have looked before and thought it to have been ransacked already, but there is a definite difference between one's normal mess and having every drawer upended--even drawers we did not remember we had.
We've decided on a motel for the night. It will take hours just to put the bedroom to rights.
And now the good news:
I never take the laptop camping. Guess what? I took the laptop camping. I had some stuff to finish up. Heehee.
They apparently were not geek enough to recognize what an external hard drive is. It is there on my desk--ready to hook up to the laptop.
They did not seem to have any use for a sewing machine. All my machines are present and accounted for.
And all the things they DID take can be replaced.
And I thought the flat tire we had on Friday was annoying! A well.
I'll be back to Wales and London when I have sorted things out.
