Today I reached the stage where I could have a good look around without being scared of seeing more things missing. I fit into my flat much better than I did. I would rather have chosen what to get rid of all by myself (and I especially would not have gotten rid of the things that are important to me, like the pendant my father gave my mother when they married) but for the rest of the year the only real overflow will be my research notes and my books. There is a silver lining to this burglary then, even though it is small and full of caveats.

The insurance people are still doing processing, so it may be a while before my wonderful portable office is up and running and before I can replace all my teaching stuff. I will have to make decisions about things like the wool suit that was stolen (one of my few pieces of surviving woollen clothing after the Great Moth Infestation some years ago - it was a rather nice FJ suit, and FJ has gone into liquidation) but I can't do so yet.

Now I learn how to wait.
