To explain a very intense period of my life i must start from the beginning. 2 years ago i was out with friends working in Ibiza, and on the beach in San An we saw some rather tasty looking ladies waltz by in the baking heat and skantilly clad bikini's. After a quick introduction i spent a few weeks with this girl but decided to get out of the country and come back to a more sane environment back in Birminhgam. It turned out the Blonde Essex girl who was stripping out there decided to move up to Birmingham with a friend to work at one of the local clubs. I seized the opportunity to entertain the blondie and one thing led to another and after a few months we decided to get our own place together. 2 years down the line, 1 mortgage, 2 pregnancy scares, multiple arguments, and rolled in a few good memories came a crossroads where we both realised the initial spark had died, and were both planning secretly our plan B. Unfortunately for me, with finances split throughout our penthouse, this came at the time i had just got my htpc media center and sp50 all setup to my maximum ever desired spec. On friday we had a blazing row before i left for work, i thought nothing of it, but as the day wore on i realised that some kind of resolution to the situation must be made this weekend. So, plan B ---Invite mum up to stay!!! We rang Clare to say we should have a sit down talk that evening, no reply. answer machine. So decided to just turn up after I left work. and this is where it went horribly wrong, and my nightmare started. With mum behind me turning the lock to the penthouse we realised on entry that things werent all as they seemed, it had been raided, not forced entry so there was only one possible reason, clare had a done a runner. When i say raided i mean everything had gone. Well except for a couple of things thank f*k that inc my pc, altho she had nicked the 17" widescreen lcd. Now this isnt all as straight forward as it may seem, as we did have alot of purchases that were shared. But all in all, I have no mission 5.1, sp50, lcd, and washing powder. but on the plus point i dont have someone moaning in my ear. Ive researched various options of how to resolve this, and insurance wise i dont think i have a leg to stand on as it was a domestic. Altho the Tv was on 0% finance in my name, but gettin this back may need me getting the police involved and round here we dont grass and i couldnt do that. so im in a catch 22. thanks for listening to a distraught sp50less unhappy tim. but any advice would be greatly received.
