OK only day 9 on TFR here. 4.5 stone to go. Comfort eating has always been my problem. Not your average obese person in that I don't generally eat biscuits, cake or chocolate. I mean I do like them but I just don't eat them.

However if something goes wrong on me I reach for the pizza company on speed dial. My phone bill came in one month, when I was going through a hard patch, and it was the most frequently dialled number!!!!:eek::eek:

Anyway, 2 days ago I came home from work to find my back window smashed. Glass everywhere. Kids had broken in. Place was wrecked. Luckily they only got into downstairs rooms. But they did really mean things...... They took my sky card and remotes. My computer was on and they deleted everything in the "My documents" folder. They tore up photographs. Anyway they took practically nothing. :cry::cry::cry:

I have priced the new window and it will €450 and my house insurance doesn't cover the first €500 so it will be out of my pocket. Glass has to be ordered and it will not be fixed till end of next week.

Anyway my point is....although I did have a few tears...... I didn't phone the pizza company!!!!! I just felt I wasn't letting them beat me.... :p:pI also didn't have a few beers which was my second thought! So I am pleased about that!

There is another reason I am writing this. I was wondering if any of you know of any way I could retrieve my computer work? There was 4 yrs of personal work in those files. I have checked the bin on the computer and they are not there. So just hoping there might be some computer nerds (meant in the nicest possible way) out there!! :confused::confused:

Sara very sorry, it is just awful to have this happen:hug99:

I rang Pierce and asked him what you could do and he says first off all you have to close down your computer and stop using it as the longer you stay on it you are over writing the information that is on your hard drive.

If you look in your Golden pages you will find data recovery experts that should be able to retirive your data.

However he did say that it is very expensive and they can charge around 100 euro per file.

Hope that helps.

Love Mini xxx

Thanks everyone.... you are all so nice! No I am fine now! I am using laptop and it was my old big computer that they messed with. I am going to phone around on Tues (bank hol). Neighbour has been so good. She is a little old lady that is all bent over with age. She heard them and phoned police. But they couldn't do anything and as they left I looked around and there was this little dear old lady sweeping up the glass!!!!! (Also never thought I would EVER hear bad language out of her but I will not repeat what she said!!!! It would make you blush!)

Found the cd where I had the photos stored that were torn so I can get them redone. Thank god they didn't wreck the walls.....I had just finished painting them.....

Somehow comfort eating with a choc shake just wasn't the same though! But funny.... pizza would normally have made the whole situation more bearable and would have made me feel a bit better. But the next morning I was so proud for not eating!!!! It was a different buzz.
