WHM will be a bit later tonight.

Two very wonderful friends have helped replace two of the most emotionally significant losses from the burglary and tell me firmly that these are birthday presents. Other friends have located me websites where I can replace the coins, the badge, some of the jewellery. Thank you, everyone! It has helped emotionally as well as helping in other ways. I now have a list of things I need and I shall work through them methodically - I still have not found the type of careful replicas I need for teaching, but the rest is happening. I shall buy my workstuff first, and then take my time with everything else. The insurance people have told me how much I will be given to spend on replacing things like the teaching tools. All this is very good.

My loungeroom looks normally messy and most things are where they belong. My L-space is still worrying and so are parts of my bedroom, but it'll all be back to rights by Monday.

I'm at the stage where I only have one hour of theft related follow-up phonecalls in a day and soon that will diminish further. And I can sit at the computer a whole hour and a half at a time - my eye is finally deciding it can deal with the bloodmist.

In other words, I'm halfway to getting my life back.

This calls for a celebration. I shall order that replacement for the Becket pilgrim badge, just as soon as I've rested my eye. And I might buy myself a Pesach present of a second pilgrim badge while I'm ordering. I was thinking of one of the very unPC ones, obviously bought by very unPC pilgrims.
