SLIGHT MISHAP HERE

I had may bag stolen yesterday. Idiot that I am it contained my BlackBerry, IPod Touch, Camera, and purse with 100 sterling in it. The bag was found dumped and thankfully returned to me. The scabby thief had, for some reason, not taken my credit cards which was a massive blessing. I think he was probably after easily disposable items to buy drugs with. Its more inconvenient than anything else because I can reclaim on the insurance.

However, that has not interfered with our holiday. The weather is great and the children are having the time of their lives. Elise, Orianne, Taylor and Harvey in particular love being together. Taylor said that this holiday with the girls is the best idea that I have ever had. I would dispute that, I think that I have probably had one or two better ideas!

It´s Elise´s 9th birthday today and we are taking her into town for a surprise birthday meal. George has arranged a cake for her and I´m sure she will be thrilled to bits. She is getting very grown up now.

You got the Blackberry back, right?

What a bummer! Did the thief snatch your purse or was it stolen from your hotel? I am so sorry to hear that. Kind of puts a damper on your vacation.

I'm so sorry you lost so many of your possessions. It doesn't matter where one is in the world. There are always opportunists looking to make easy money.

Yes Momcats, and they are usually druggies. They cause all sorts of inconveniences but can only think of that next fix.

Actually Anne I did have one debit card stolen. I didn´t notice that it was gone until yesterday. Why he took one card and left others I don´t know. Maybe because I wouldn´t notice one gone, which I didn´t. I have cancelled it with the bank and if it has been used will have to sort it out when I get back home.

You can get the blackberry remotely nuked by contacting your service provider, I suggest you do so.

Oh no!! I had a bag stolen once, and it wasn't the £80 which hurt so much as the personal items. I hope you at least got those back?

I'm afraid bag-snatchers are a menace in any tourist hot-spot, including London. Whether I'm home or away I seldom carry a handbag, but opt for a bumbag instead, and stash some of the necessary items in pockets with fasteners. I have a suspicious nature - especially after losing one bag.
