Steve Shaw De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 (1217* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 29 Sep 21


We've lived in the absolute middle of nowhere for 34 years. We have no neighbours within a quarter of a mile. Until last year we were very blasť about locking up, and we never bothered to lock our cars. Then, on Easter Sunday morning 2020, in the early hours, a druggie rifled through our car glove boxes and stole my little stash of car-park change. Not only that, he "borrowed" Mrs Steve's pushbike for his "getaway" (we found it unharmed a few hundred yards away). The chap did a slightly more serious break-in at the neighbouring farm. Currently, he's in jail hundreds of miles away. It's a shame, but we now feel the need to lock up everything all the time. We've always had dusk-to-dawn lights at four points around our house, all very low wattage LED bulbs. On the rare occasions we're away, I have similar things all over the house indoors too, as well as timers working several lights in the house. The lane down to our house is a dead end, and the farmer would ensure that any intruder would be rapidly trapped by a lane-blocking tractor!
