This evening started as had been planned with me collecting A2 for her singing lesson - usually I don't do this bit of the child wrangling, because it is Debbie's day - but today she was due to be playing in a concert... so I volunteered - with the plan of dropping A2 off at the concert afterwards.

However, when I got to Debbie's house, I discovered that she was going to be an unexpected soloist, so instead of dropping A2 off, the plan changed to me attending the concert!

It was a great concert - I enjoyed all of it..... and Debbie getting lots of well deserved applause at the end of both halves..

However (again) when I got out of the concert hall - with the plan to take the kids home with me so that Debbie could go to the post concert party - I found my passenger window broken. I assume someone saw my school rucksack and assumed that it was a laptop bag... they were presumably sorely disappointed with a bunch of past papers and lesson notes. They also moved A2's bag of singing music - again of no interest - though she was a little spooked by the thought of someone going through the bag... and R's violin on the back seat was fortunately not of interest at all.

It looks as if they went down the row of cars, breaking windows of any that they thought contained anything interesting - I gather that the lady two cars behind me lost a lot of posessions... for me it will just be the inconvenience of getting the window fixed.

Overall, the evening was a good one... but with a little sting in the tail.

I'm glad the concert went well. How horrible though for you to find what you found. Crime hits people in so many ways. Glad you didn't loose much and hope every one is ok.

I think that's what spooked A2 most - that the same thing had happened to Debbie so recently... during a rehearsal I think for the same orchestra - but in a completely different part of town. On this occasion of course, the children had to travel home in the car afterwards, which made it more "real".

I was just thinking that - really spooky for it to happen *again*!

Indeed... though I guess it doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that cars parked outside a concert hall might be unattended for a couple of hours... and they seem to have worked out how not to set car alarms off this time...

Yuck - I'm sorry to hear about the sting in the tail but glad the rest of the evening was good. *hugs!*

Thanks - it's nearly all sorted out now - they've done a temporary fix to the window, and will come to work tomorrow to put the proper one in when the order arrives.

Oh thank goodness they didn't damage the violin. I'm glad the concert went well, shame about the crime!

Indeed - particularly because it is the one that actually belongs to their violin teacher! I don't think it is particularly valuable, but would have been awkward...
