Don’t wish too hard, or it may come true!!!

Yes. Don’t you ever, ever, never, and I mean never wish too much something, because if you don’t have it yet, or it didn’t happen yet, there may be a reason why!
On my last post, I was speaking with my mouth full, that I had to turn my pc off, to have more time, and so on. What was I thinking?
I think someone took my words seriously, too serious for my taste!
(I must say that everyone is OK.)
We are robbed on the night from Sunday to Monday. Yes this is real!
Apparently here in South Africa is normal for the houses to get robbed while people are sleeping!
It sounds scary, but usually they spread some kind of smoke in the house, especial one that people will fall a sleep so deeply that nothing will awake them up, and they just clean the house.
Now, guess what they took!!! My PC, among other things, of course. Wallets, all our documents, money, hard drives, phones, even cigarettes!!!
Apparently, they didn’t put the especial smoke in the house because we didn’t have any headache. That is the symptom for the smoke.
So in the morning we went down the stairs, the rooms are in the first floor. And what a night spree!!!
Now, the bag from the last post, may she rest in peace, went also, I didn’t even had the chance to use it properly!
I’m so mad about everything, of course everyone is ok, but we always take some time to get stuff for us to have, and some guys just come here and take it all away! GGGGGRRRRRRRRRR
Must now wait for my husband to came home from work, to have a little of internet and pc.
All my files, everything is gone, so if I didn’t replay to some one please excuse me, could you please send it again. And no record of emails here. So if you want me to replay, you are going to have to leave me your email also.
I think this is my first post ever with no photos.
See you


  1. Oh My Goodness!
    I am so sorry for you family, but happy you are all ok. How horrible! I am glad you didn't get smoked. I can't imagine how upset you must be.

    Hang in there, you are in my thoughts!

  2. Oh NO! I am so sorry to hear this but I'm glad that you are all safe! How scary and awful! Hugs to you and please email me if there is anything I can do to help...

  3. Hi Cristina,
    That is sorry news. I hope that you were insured and all Ok and you are not too shaken up by it.

    We had a robbery too a couple of weeks ago, but luckily my dogs started barking and scared them off.

    Many years ago I had a newly knitted cardigan on the washing line (worn only once) and it was stolen. I still miss it and remember the stitch detail and all.

    Lots of hugs to you and your little ones and hope you'll be able to forget about this soon.


  4. That's terrible! I'm so sorry to hear this! It's a relief to know you're all okay.

  5. Oh Cristina, I'm so sorry! What a horrible thing to wake up to. I'm glad you're all safe, and I hope the process of reconstructing your data is not too painful. I use gmail to back up all my email, give me a shout if you want to know how.

  6. I am so sorry about your lost, but I am glad that everybody is OK. What a horrible experience.

  7. Oh No. What a crazy thing to happen. I am glad to know all of you are safe and ok. Many hugs.

  8. My home has been robbed before too, but not when I was there. How scary for you and your famly! I am so happy you all are o.k.! Take care!

  9. I am so sorry! I know how hard that is to take - it is funny - but yes - you realize there are many things that you hang on to that you do not need. but it is still difficult to take and can make you angry. I am glad everyone in the family is ok though!

  10. Oh Cristina! I'm so sorry to hear about the break in. But I am thankful to hear that you and the little wilds are OK. If there's anything I can do to help, please let me know!
