So we have now lived in our “new” place for 6 months. Everything is going smoothly; I love the modern touches, the ensuite, WIR and cupboard under the stairs (pantry). I am also keen on the fact that almost no maintenance is required and it is easy to clean (lucky, as I have been in hospital for almost half the time we’ve lived here!).
We are in a “nice” part of town, close to the city centre, parks and museums…ideal.
Yesterday my husband happened to be speaking to someone who it turns out lived here before us…total fluke. It turns out that they moved out after the place was burgled…worse than that, someone broke in and cleaned out the downstairs while they slept upstairs, stole their car and used it to transport not only their belongings but also those of the three neighbouring places.
So now I am even more paranoid about key-locking windows & deadlocks…as if I wasn’t paranoid enough! I would get the security company to re-activate the alarm but the cats would set off the movement sensors.
So my question to you is have you ever been burgled or are you hyper-vigilant about home security?
Love Jo xxx
