+1 P.S. And find the bastard that robbed you…and teach him a lesson !

It was a whole crew of bastards. They even had the audacity to park their van on our drive!

and unfortunately the computers that were taken were the property of the less tech savvy part of my family. The main computers had tracking on them but they left those for some reason.

File a police report (may seem obvious but many people dont report it because they think nothing will happen), call your insurance and file a claim.

It may be useful to look up auction sites as well, is if you can see any of your items.

EDIT : Invest in some security, a lot of pople get robbed again because they know you will have new stuff, and they already know where everything should be.

Police have been, they’ve checked for finger prints, shoe prints etc. Insurance will be done once the ever growing list is done.

As I said, it’s not the stuff. Most of that can be replaced. I just want a way of getting back to normal.

Sitting in the sun with my laptop planning projects and talking with people about potential jobs I ended up with a pretty good plan. So after 11 days of pure bliss in Turkey I come home.

Walking through the (unlocked) door at 4am I see bank statements, papers, business cards and just general havock in the hall. It felt like minuets before I bolted into the first room.
Nothing, thousands of pounds worth of hifi gone. The next room; home surround sound system and TV gone. The next, mine; monitor gone, computer thrown across the floor. “Rainy day” money gone.
I walk into my young brother’s and sister’s rooms… everything uprooted.
My parents room… All jewelry gone, everything emptied on the floor. The clarinet my mother has had since she was 11 gone.

£25K + of stolen items and damages. The things I’ve lost doesn’t sadden me even half as much as the cries I heard form my 12 year old sister and mother that morning.

I’ve lost all inspiration for what I once wanted to do.
What do I do?

Try finding an old wooden chair (cheap on eBay) and throw it! Or take your glass stuff to a recycle center and lob it as hard as you can into the glass section. Very satisfying sound :D

did get quite emotional watching the opening ceremony actually, especially the first part showing the idyllic countryside then cutting to Isabard Brunel who revolutionized our industry with fantastic precision, ending with the 5 gold olympian rings being forged and interconnecting overhead. Just amazing. yes, Beiging was impressive too but Great Britain did not strive to copy. We created something special that was close to our english hearts.

I agree, it was different which made me happy. I was scared that we may just copy an the special effects and explosions that Beijing had. As i said, it made me proud to be British I just wonder if some of the stuff that was done we could only understand.

Please comment! I really want to know what it was like for people in other country and weather you understood all of it!

What did we think of the opening ceremony? Personally it made me very proud to be British! Certain parts even made the hair on my neck stand up!
I would quite like to know what people in other country’s thought of our start and how it compared to others?
