I would like to say thank you for the comforting messages I recieved yesterday. I just love the warmth of the friends I have made on here. I cannot explain how I felt yesterday when I wrote that post, but I was shocked, disapointed, angry, sad.. a mixture of a lot of emotions. I could not ring out to ask a friend for comfort or to drop over, because all my numbers were in my mobile phone somewhere in a strangers pocket. I was able to ring my daughter and she came to my rescue by ringing the police and her dad, who came by and offered support. Its weird how vulnerable we are when we feel so exposed and its easy to 'freeze' and not be able to do small things like find the number for, and ring, the police (combining the fact that I am unwell at the moment, and that definately didn't help).
My car (I only had if for 5 days) has been located. Police tell me it will be driveable but its not 'my pretty little car' anymore. It was used to smash through a huge set of iron gates so there is extensive damage. It was not a new car when I bought it..but I chose it very carefully and picked one I loved.
My cash I will never see again. The money my children gave me to renovate my kitchen. I have money... but that particular money was a gift.. it was special.. my childrens way of 'contributing' to their mums reno's. Their input into making my home comfortable and a pretty place for me. :(
I did find a set of keys (they were from my workplace, and I work in a tight security section, keeping those keys would have meant huge consiquences for anyone stealing them and they were smart enough to foresee that and throw them down before they left). My personal keys and my huge keyboard were all taken..why the heck would they want my chalkboard???? My two handbags I found emptied and thrown up under my house.. and my purse was found on the backseat of my car... and thankfully my cards were intact so there is a huge job that I dont have to do renewing them all. My phone I will miss. It will take me ages to gather my numbers again..some of them from friends that I contact only occasionally and unless they ring me, I may not be able to get their numbers for ages. Its just all so disconcerting!
Anyway, we are having a beautiful day here today... two lovely friends took me out to a beautiful restaurant for a delicous meal last night, and one of them had a gift for me... a new mobile phone! I came home to find two beautiful bunches of flowers waiting for me... sent by some great friends. Talk about feeling loved and cared about. I have tears in my eyes just writing this.
Have a beautiful day all! Hugs to you all from me. Marilyn xoxo
