thieves do prosper

While on holiday in France, camping, we were burgled! As can be seen from the rent in our tent, they were very daring- we were asleep in the tent at the time. It wasn't until 7.00 in the morning, when I rushed to find my camera to take pictures of the hot air balloon that was taking off from the site, that we noticed the gaping hole and no rucksac! My knitting bag was found a few yards away. Clearly a disappointing object, and then the rucksac turned up on the other side of the field, minus my i-phone. 

The police thought it vey exciting and the gardener described the incident as murder of a tent as far as the local police were concerned! No less the 6 gendarmes arrived, in 3 sets of 2 to take photos and talk to us.
Anyway, no phone and I had to pay £100 excess for the privilege of receiving a refurbished i-phone, probably bought off some French burglar a few days earlier!!! How unfair.
