Holiday disaster

We had a lovely holiday in the Canary Islands with our grandson – perfect weather – perfect location – until two days before we were due to come home when our apartment was broken in to.

It’s not nice when you come back after a meal and a pleasant walk and discover that all your cupboards and drawers have been turned over. Our real valuables – like passports and money – were in a safe, but whoever broke in took a camera – with all our wonderful holidays snaps which we were going to put on DVD for our grandson to show his mum and dad – a mobile phone, a watch, sunglasses, and an e-reader (which always goes on holiday with us, it saves carrying so many books around)

It was a disappointing end to the holiday and has caused no end of a nuisance. Nevertheless it was an experience that might find its way into a book one day. Heroine’s place is broken in to, hero to the rescue, sort of thing.

    Oh no!!!!
    How awful for you!

    Hopefully it will all be sorted soon. And yes, it should go in a book.

    Oh Margaret, so sorry to hear about the break in, what an awful thing to happen. But at least you’re all safe and they didn’t get your passports etc. Such a shame about the photos though – you’ll just have to go on holiday again to recreate them!

    Margaret – I dropped by your blog to say hello from one Staffordshire romance author to another (though I have *cough* slighly less experience!) I am sorry to hear that your holiday apartment was burgled. I hope the rest of the summer improves greatly.

    Best Wishes

    Phillipa, how interesting to note that you live in Staffordshire. Do you write for Mills & Boon?

  • Phillipa says:

    Hi Margaret . No I write for Little Black Dress but I'm a fan of M&B too. I saw an interview with you in the Journal a whiole ago – I used to write for that magazine as a journalist and since then I've been interviewed too.
