Now, he had stored the satnav away, so it wasn't on show, but apparently thieves these days look for the dashboard/windscreen mount (or even just the marks from one on the windscreen) and break in.
He was actually parked in a car park not on the street and yes, it was one of his car parks!
Window is now repaired and new satnav will be here tomorrow (thank goodness for Amazon).
He's now home (just had a quick break for coffee there) with further news. The thief was spotted (and is also on CCTV) and one of the attendants did give chase. They also kindly cleared up the broken glass inside the car.
Whilst all this excitement has been going on I've been home enjoying the sunshine and finishing off a LO that I started on Sunday.
This was made using the WeScrap March kit and is a photo of my Mum and Dad in around 2000. I did the stitching and beads this afternoon whilst listening to "The Best 60's Party Ever" - brought back lots of memories.
The next LO is the one I finished off on Sunday.
Photos of me with my Mum in the 70's. My Mum was one of the few people I was taller than.The large flowers on this one were made using pages from an old book, TH "Tattered Flowers" die and distress inks, as seen in April's "Craft Stamper" magazine. The other flowers were made using punches and scraps of paper from the kit.
Both LOs were for sketch challenges.
Now for a couple of books.
This week I've read two really,really good books.
JR Ward's "Lover Unleashed" , book 9 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series - the ending set things up very nicely for book 10. Thanks to Virginia for recommending this series - I'm officially hooked!
The other I read on Kindle but it has been published in paperback. It's "A Taste of Magic" by Tracy Madison - a lovely light read with some funny moments. Set in Chicago, the heroine is a baker and the descriptions of the cakes she makes inspired me to do my own baking yesterday - a rice cake and a rhubarb crumble cake. The latter is more of a dessert so we had it with ice cream - yummy!
Tonight is Champions League Quarter Finals and we're away to Chelsea - I shall be watching, very nervously.
