Played football the other night, and in the hour I was gone my home was burgled. They took two laptops, ipod touch, Digital camera, Blackberry, wallet, ipod :-(
Anyway there are two reasons for this post
1 - Don't get complacent with the current security of your home! I would have never set the house alarm at 5 in the evening for an hour, but that would have limited the little scrote's time in the house. Don't leave keys near doors or on view - this may seem obvious but if they have access to your keys they can come back to finish a job. Little things such as timed lights (which cost about 75p!), setting the alarm when you go to bed etc. I know most of you will skim past this and think nothing of it ( I would have done). But when you dont feel safe in your own home, its not a nice feeling. If only one of you heeds this advice then thats good, take 20 mins to assess vunerabilities in your home and do something about it!
2 - Home insurance, my policy holder is asking for proof of purchase for every single item i want to claim for. I can understand why this is in place, but how do i claim for gifts or items i havent kept receipts? Any advice is appreciated
