I am kicking myself <b>very</b> hard, but I don't feel any better - I left my handbag in my car whilst I went into our library for 10 minutes this afternoon, and some $%&*^(*(*%$£ smashed the car window and stole it The library is on a combined campus with the primary school, surgery and community hall in a semi-rural area. The car park was deserted, so I parked practically inside the library , no more than 5 to 10 yards from the door, which was open. I can't believe that we didn't hear the smash! The irony is that I would never leave my bag in the car if I was parking in town or a buitl-up area, but I naiively thought it would be safe there Anyway, when I returned to the car, there was glass all over the place and my bag and some shopping had gone. Grrrrrrr The shopping was a couple of hand-made items I'd just picked up to give as a Christening present on Sunday - they had been made with the baby's name on, so won't be any use whatsoever to anyone else. I've just spent a horrible couple of hours going through the rigmarole of notifying the police and getting all my credit cards stopped. Tomorrow I'll have to sort out the hassle of getting the car fixed. I cannot believe I could have been so stupid! Any pixie dust going spare?
