How to ruin a weekend...

The weekend started off well. I'd splashed out on some more wool for my scarf-making business, and was coping with the heat (boy, it's scorching out there and has been for days!).

Saturday night I watched Memoirs of a Geisha on DVD (excellent movie and I would recommend it to everyone!!), and must have fallen into bed at about 1.30am. It was another hot, hot night, so we had the windows open.

7.15am the phone rang. In a dazed state I went to answer it, muttering about the insensitivity of calling at that hour on a Sunday morning.

The conversation that ensued is not worth repeating... it was horrible, to be frank. My caller informed me that he was my worst nightmare, and spoke to me as if he knew me. Told me he had seen pics of me naked, and called me a slag. I started panicking, wondering how someone from AdultFriendFinder had gotten my unlisted home phone number. (I experienced some Internet blackmail by an AdultFriendFinder member back in January, and I wondered whether this was him, back for more sick fun).

I told my caller that if he didn't leave me alone, I would call the police. I hung up, and then decided to dial 1471. This is a facility in the UK that tells you the number of the last person who called (if they haven't witheld the number).

Pen poised over paper, I listened to the automated voice repeating the number, and a wave of confusion hit me. I hung up and dialled 1471 again. The same number was repeated.


I looked over to where I had last seen my mobile, and was shocked to discover that my handbag was GONE!

Then Mr Hansen's mobile started ringing. The bastard was calling Mr Hansen's mobile FROM MY MOBILE!! Mr Hansen had woken up while I had been speaking on the phone the first time, and so wasn't really up to speed with my horrifying discovery.

Anyway, long story short... during the wee hours of Sunday morning, an intruder managed to squeeze himself through a very small window and remove a key which was in the lock of the door next to the window. He unlocked the door from the outside and let himself in.

Our uninvited guest helped himself to two of my handbags (I have one for during the week, with EVERYTHING bar the kitchen sink in it, and another little bag I use on weekends; a backpack (complete with some knitting I had in there), and my beloved laptop, as well as my mobile. Also in there were a set of house keys AND work keys. I work in finance, and part of my job involves safes, etc. Need I say more???

We called 999 straight away, and the rest of the day passed by in a blur. The police were brilliant, although what he must have thought when I had to tell him about the call, and what was said... I was blushing when I told him about the "intimate" pics that were on my laptop , but he never batted an eyelid! CSI came around later in the day, and got some decent finger prints. All I can hope is that they nick the bastard who has turned my life upside down!

I am NOT a happy Helga just right now. This incident has just added to a load that was already wearing me down. I now have to deal with an insurance claim and the hassle of getting most things replaced. There are some things, though, that can never be replaced, and it is those things that I am truly sore about...

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

It is the hazzle of going through all the things you are missing, getting things replaced in time, changing locks, blocking phone/bank, warning others, new creditcards, ID-papers, etc. And then things you can not replace because of the loss.

I know how it feels as someone has done it once to me, stolen my bag from my sleeping room, when I was doing an opening for a basketball camp.

Even had to have my car keys send in from Sweden as it was registered there.

Though lucky I was not on yr mobile phone list neither did appear in any 'intimate pictures' ........

Let them check from what point he was making the phone call to you and Mr Hansen, they can check it upon appr. 300 mtrs distance (when they told me), may lead to a clue.
