I am a computer and a camera short today, but have a bike too much.
Somebody left a bike by the garage, went into the garden at the back, climbed in the window in a bedroom, went into the downstairs livingroom, stole my lap-top and digital camera, and left through the living-room window. It happened between 2 and 4 am tonight.
The lap-top was a tundra, bought this winter, the camera a sony cybershot, a gift from a close friend. Both were full of material that is irreplacable, if not of life-and-death importance, and extremely important for my work.
There was no force used, the thefth was most of all marked by coincidence. I hardly ever use the lap-top downstairs, but I did last night. I also left the camera next to it, planning to work more this morning.
I am, of course, distraught. I have called the police, they will show up and fetch the bike. The chance of getting the computer back is small. I don't expect ever to see the camera again. But the computer is of an unusual brand. If somebody tries to sell a tundra in the area around Volda, or suddenly have one, if they have no papers, let the police know about it. There are not that many of them about, I'd think.
It is rather ironic, I have carried the computer with me all over Europe and the US, same with the camera, and it gets stolen in the downstairs living room. Time to become paranoid also when home, I guess.
