You can read here how I suffered the theft of my MacBook Pro the other day I was a bit shaken up about it that evening and this is the first time I have blogged since it happened.
Great news though there was an update today in the form of a phone call from the police. They haven’t come round to interview me yet, but apparently the coffee shop has cameras outside it as well as inside it, and the person who grabbed my MacBook was caught on the cameras. He is known to the police and has been arrested.
Now obviously I already have my property back, although my pro retina screen is cracked and that will need fixing, something I need to get on with doing soon. But, apparently I can somehow get my money back through the courts, I don’t really understand how, but that’s what the police said to me on the phone.
I’m assuming it’s some way I can claim back for property damage through the theft?
Anyway, work were really sympathetic about it and I suppose in a way it’s brought a few things home to me about how it could be more serious, the example I could have been walking down the street with it as I often do and I could have been attacked in order for the man to get it off me.
So I think the learning curve for me here is to be a bit more security conscious. I think sometimes us females are not as security conscious as we should be, considering the education and information out there about how we can be targeted.
In other news, my mum is coming to stay for a few days soon. She called me to tell me that dad is on a golfing weekend and so rather than sit around the house getting bored, she was hoping she could come to the city and see me. I actually suspect it’s more about being able to catch up with a few old friends and do some shopping while not paying for a hotel, but that’s just the real cynical side in me, I’ll be delighted to see my mum after a few months of not.
But it does mean I’m going to have to sort the place out, and I’m not sure I’ve got the time to do it right now, especially as I am now trying to get a replacement screen sorted out for my MacBook and get some extra work done to progress my career.
