There are three options as to what happened sometime between 10.30pm last night and 05.00am this morning.
Option 1: Somebody broke into my home. Didn't take anything, didn't leave any traces, but forgot to lock the door.
Option 2: I didn't lock the door properly last night. Even though I did take the key out, I can't remember whether I checked whether the door was locked or not.
Option 3: I sleepwalked at some point and unlocked the front door.
Option 1 is not really logical. My television was still there, as was my laptop, my camera and my money bag (from work).
Option 3 isn't really logical either. I only sleepwalk when I have nothing to do and working every day, meeting people and talking to them is not nothing.
So, option 2 sounds like the most likely option. I didn't lock the door properly. Now, not locking the door is not such a huge problem. But when you wake up at 5am and it's howling because of the wind, while you know the wind comes from the wrong direction for howling...
Turns out, an unlocked door can be opened. And open doors are not good, especially when there is a lot of wind. And it's cold outside. The heat pump couldn't keep up and the house was like a fridge all over. A hot shower got me warm for a bit, but once out from under, I was cold again. The car was equally cold and once it got warm, there were only 2 kilometers left to drive! And then it was back out in the cold. The bus I had to take wasn't much better: a total of 0 degrees inside! I have been cold all day it feels like.
One more day to the weekend!! Hopefully with locked doors and no wind!!!
