Despite the cost and annoyance we mostly felt relief. Thank goodness the car was not actually stolen; for now we can repair instead of replace it. We feel cross that we left it on the street as we normally park it up the driveway; this particular evening we were both shattered from a busy day and just forgot. It has been a timely reminder to be vigilant with security.
This wee incident has made me ponder a great deal about how we react to situations. Mae watches our every move and has been mimicking our behaviour with brilliant accuracy. When we found the car had been broken into I was rather shocked that I didn't want launch into a hissy fit. Instead after the initial jolt I felt relief ... no-one was hurt, we still had the car and it was the least valuable of our two cars.

We have sourced some parts for the car and it is being fixed up. It has cost us less than we imagined to be repaired. Unlike fixing the roof which seemed to swallow money! But in the end it balances out and we manage. Unexpected can be good too. Mr. Fox was offered a job opportunity to go to Israel. He had a couple of days to decide and about a week to get organised. It was with much excitement he said yes. Yes to an incredible adventure.
