I have good news (for a change). Some of the pieces I thought were stolen, were merely...rearranged. In the tangle of surviving jewellery, I found my Past Times necklace, for instance (though not the Past Times brooch, or my Becket pewter brooch from Elizabeth Chadwick), and the first piece of jewellery I ever bought for myself (20c at the Royal Melbourne Show). There's still a lot gone - it's an evil list of lost past, but more of my memories remain than was first obvious. Why the thief did this messy rearrangement is anyone's guess. My personal guess is that he was looking for cash. I don't have cash - it's the price of doing what I'm doing - all my money is earmarked for its various earmarked things. Anyhow, there are some things I shall miss. And there's a lot more (inexpensive, but full of stories) taht I still have.

On the phone with my case manager, I explained that I didn't want replacements for jewellery where the story would stop, only for those things that the story would continue.

Addendum: This insurance company is *very* good. They replace things where possible and do all the pricing and stuff themselves. So far, they've also done all the paperwork. And they've worked out which things are a priority for me and which things need time.
