A break-in attempt?

A quick note about this: last Friday I was home (after being sick all Thursday night), and on Saturday afternoon Dee noticed that our front window (into Jules’ room) was damaged — and it clearly looked like someone had attempted to open it with a crowbar.
We can’t say for sure when it was, but we do have a sensor light for overnight and I was totally out of it on Friday, so it was possibly during the day. Whenever it was, they damaged our windows pretty badly (but couldn’t actually get it, so winning).
As soon as we noticed, we were off to Bunnings for an alarm. Presumably it was a “convenience crime” (well, if you carry a crowbar around with you) on our otherwise quiet street; Dee reported it to the police but they didn’t really have much to tell us.

I guess I should update the ‘blog?1 Not an easy thing to do these days, since even finding the time to do something as self-indulgent as public journaling probably just means there’s something else I could be doing instead, but maybe it’s an experiment I would like to continue?

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
