New Year, and the problems continue.


By alextb


I should have guessed that the New Year was not going to bring better luck.

This morning I decided to take a look outside, and found my evergreen planter looking crooked, even though when I left it, it was straight.

Then I noticed that the mini garden birds planter I had, had been stolen.

It had 2 bluetits on it and had a sprouting daffodil bulb in it, with wood chippings on top of the soil for decoration.

I do not have a proper phot, but I do have one at an angle which was taken after an attack.

I did notice two teenagers about 15, and one looked a lot like the main culprit for a lot of damage. Oh and they seemed a little more than tipsy, so they may have had something to do with it.

I did have a side CCTV camera, but when the back one broke down, where most of the damage occured, the side one was moved to teh back, just a few days before it was needed at the side.

I do not seem to have much luck.

Happy New Year to all you GoYers. This year seems to be heading the same way as last year for me.

Happy New Year to you Alextb, I do hope you have a better year, perhaps a call to the police would be a good idea as if your on your own you would be classed as vunerable, collect all evidence and make a diary daily. I know I ve had this in the past myself, if I see them I confront them with their colourful language, I don't care but you do have to be careful nowadays.

I have kept a detailed log for over a year!

I have gathered all evidence possible, and a discreet CCTV camera has been placed in the area.

Fingers Crossed.
