Sorry, no card today. Bit behind today as I spent yesterday late afternoon and evening driving from Milton Keynes to Brecon in Wales and back. My husband and son are having a little holiday down there and were having a great time. They had just had a game of squash at Brecon Leisure Centre and when they went to their locker they found that all of their valuables had been stolen - phones, wallets, keys and an ipod touch. You can imagine how they felt.
So, they had no money and they couldn't get into the car. They were able to get a little emergency cash from the bank. The RAC wouldn't come out and help as it wasn't a breakdown - thanks!
It was left to me to drive 3 hours to give them the spare car key and take them some cash and pay for the B&B. I stayed for dinner and then drove back so that the house was manned until we can change the locks.
The hassle this sort of thing causes is enormous - cancelling cards, replacing id cards, driving licences, insurance claims, etc. I doubt very much if the thieves will be caught. Nasty people.
On Friday, my daughter and I had a lovely shopping day in Oxford. But, you know, even this was spoiled by seeing a group of 3 girls in Primark who were deliberately picking clothes of the rails and dropping them on the floor and then running their arms across the t-shirt shelves so that they all fell on the floor. What a horrid thing to do!
These actions really make me sad and concerned for our future society.
Will be back with a card tomorrow - promise!
