I’ll never quite understand why people take advantage of other people during times of change, stress, sadness etc.. but they do.
Yesterday I returned to my old house to start clearing and cleaning up before handing it over to the new owner to find that someone had entered the house (probably just a few days before) and had rummaged through all our remaining belongings (thankfully it was just mostly boxes of stuff for the skip that we had left behind) and stolen some items including some extending ladders and power tools. Luckily there was no vandalism involved and our family photos were not damaged.
The police were great. They took a report and I made an audio statement and they’ll be visiting the area and making enquiries.
It was obviously people who knew we had just moved which makes me feel sad. There had never been anything like this on our road before so it all seems rather strange.
I have a busy week ahead, we’ll be at our old house most days (a few of us anyway) doing a big clear up and clean. Only 32 days to go until we leave.
I’m feeling overwhelmed, could have done without this horrid invasion of privacy and it makes me even sadder it could possibly be someone we know.
