My god Will, 60 a day, well done for giving it up!!
I think you got the wrong impression of me, when I said I bought 1000 fags I did'nt say these would last me 4 months.. I don't class myself as a heavy smoker, 10 a day at the most. I only go over this if i'm having a boozy night out which is on average once a month and somehow a beer just takes so much better with a ciggie, i's sure you secretly agree with me on that one, look around the pub at the ones gazing into space with a smile on their face and they are almost guaranteed to be the ex-smokers and thats what they are thinking about.
10 a day is still 10 too many but for now i'm happy
Alan, The tele was bad luck but I know what you mean about about being a long way away, the first thing we sorted out was the windows, locking shutters and locking windows made me feel better and we then made sure we were fully insured.Also feel a bit better in an upstairs apartment, the only way my sofa's are coming out is over the balcony and they would have to carry things down the steps in full view of the main street. Apart from this there is not a lot you can do, if someone wants what you have they will find a way.
It's the same everywhere so apart from being careful you just have to hope you are lucky and it does not happen to you. When i'm in UK I worry about my place in Lanza and when i'm in Lanza I worry about my place in UK..
Got to learn to follow some of my own advise now when i'm out and about, sat back and realised just how daft we are, especially on the beach and in the cars. Looking back my beach bag had in it mobile, expensive watch, taken off the protect it from sand! purse with credit card and ALL my money, MP3, sunglasses and lots more. Keep it all 'safely' tucked away in the bag and then what do we do.. go swimming and leave the lot in the middle of the beach for anyone to take.. luckily nobody ever has but I now know it was just a matter of time. No More.. 5 euro max and nothing else of any value.
