Lock it or lose it

This story was inspired by a small padlock from the magic story bagSmall Padlock

Those crime prevention posters must have been effective at some point in my life. I am almost obsessed with locking things up. Doors, sheds, bikes, lockers, the garage, the car … I could go on.

I feel I’m more obsessed with locking them up than anyone might be about stealing them.

The only time my house has been broken into, everything was locked, but the burglar still got in and stole my stuff.

Lock it and lose it – but you can’t lose what you give away – so perhaps I should give more and lock up less!
