I feel you pain, we have an oil tank and it must be heartbreaking. So expensive to fill up and it's not like we have much else to heat our homes if we live in a rural situation.

I hope they feel good with themselves taking rather than working!

So sorry about your oil theft and hope the insurance people get on and do the right thing by paying up quickly. We have an open fire, and I've caught people trying to get in our coal shed twice - presumably looking for tools rather than the black stuff.

Your desk is looking fabulously tidy, and I love your Westie in the snow.

I'm SO sorry to read about your theft. I hope the insurance company pays. What a blow!

I really like what's on your desk. It's quite clean, I think. Bobbie looks like he is having fun, too. What a cutie. And I'm glad to read it wasn't just me who couldn't get your linky to work. Congrats to Peggy on the win.

Stay warm, today (I'm Number 3 this week).

Stealing someone's heating oil!! How low. This is a new one on me, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised by what people do in this world. New playthings in the mail, how exciting. I am expecting a score buddy, can't wait. Have a better week!! #15

Unknown said...

OMG - i can't believe someone would do that to you - how did no one catch them or notice - it beggers belief. they want their theiving hands chopping off - you used the right word to describe them.

Bobby is lovely - I have a bedlington and clumps of snow stick to him too. So funny to see them running amock in it!

Great tidy desk - always nioe to see someone with something new to add to their stash.

Space to work, what a treat, loving the tags... sorry to hear about the oil, the filthy low lifes, sending a hug for you x

Helen said...

I am amazed at your restraint in not ranting further!! What lowlife..... Thanks for sharing your desk.

Annie said...

How annoying to have your oil pinched. Hope insurance pays out for you. Love your little westie pic. We have 3 cairn terriers who all come back in from the garden looking like that. It's amazing just how much snow they can get on their legs isn't it?

Arn't there some rotton B's out there. Hope they spill some and slip and break their bloody necks.

Sweet doggy bet he's loving the snow.

hope your insurance pays out.

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh Jude how horrible - the money and the hassle and the feeling that some bugger can just do that, it's absolutely sickening and then really angry making, your reaction is absolutely justified! Is it any consolation to say that your desk looks fab to my eye - I could walk in and get straight on at your desk, no prob!

Lizzybobs said...

That is so horrid for you hun so sorry - thanks for sharing with us your lovely tidy desk have a great day :o) and keep warm

Bluefairy4U said...

Oh I am so sorry to hear someone's pinched your oil, what goes round comes round they will not have much luck. Hope you do the lottery or something similar and win your money back, it will be given back to you, I am very sure I feel it. Your cards look beautiful and I just adore your Westie, I had one years ago. Lots of love and hugs *71*

Twiglet said...

Victoria said...

Ciara said...

There are some real low lives out there. You might remember I blogged about someone stealing the lead flashings from my house a few weeks back. Grrr

Luckily ours have been replaced just in time for this nasty weather.

Love your doggy pic, what a cutie! I just put a couple of different pics of Ellie up as I caught her just before she came inside.


Angie said...

What a great doggy photo....and yes we have used the Santa site ....brilliant ....should have captured the 3 year olds face but was wiping a tear away xx

Nicky said...

What low lifes stealing your oil - my hugs go out to you.

Love your space and your dog is so cute in the snow

Thanks for the link to the Santa site ~30

Cardarian said...

I can't believe what the world is coming to - people stealing oil?????? My God! Sorry about that - I hope you get the money back from the insurance! Doggy is just sooo cute!

Elizabeth said...

How despicable can people be, as you say, low life. I hope your insurance pays up all that is what these thieves rely on - they assume that they are not harming you but you are suffering. Your wee dog is so cute - funny how they just love rolling in the snow.Elizabeth #85

Ali H said...

hi Jude
thanks for stopping by - even if your Dad isn't enjoying the snow at least young Westie is ! We have a big gas tank in the garden for our fuel needs - thankfully harder to nick than your oil - you poor thing ! Ali (29)

Spyder said...

meanies! we got all our Christmas shopping stolen out of our car boot one year, we just remembered we'd forgotten something for Auntie, and parked, nipped in, wasn't more than 15 minutes, came back, boot was empty! as you say, police just shrugged, nothing they could do. Your desk looks busy but I think your puppy dog looks busiest, super cute!

Happy WOYWW!!

Pam said...

Honestly! How low can a person go to steal heating oil. Karma my dear - they WILL get theirs. Now why didn't that puppy bark? I have a Westie too (named Taz - short for Tazmanian Devil) and she barks like crazy, which makes me crazy, when there is someone outside. Hope everything gets better soon {hugs}

Oh, and AmberInk got lucky @#1!

karen said...

How awful that someone would steal your heating oil. I hope insurance will help you out!
Great pic of your doggie in the snow! They do seem to love it (most of them anyway)
And it was nice to see your desk! I was having my doubts that there was a desk under there at all, lol!
Happy WOYWW!

Vicki B in OP NY said...

So very sorry to hear about those nasty thieves. Good people like you don't deserve this, but chin up, they'll get theirs...and it won't be coal in their stockings! How sweet to see Bobby the Westie having a romp in the snow. What a sweet boy. Love your desk. Will look forward to seeing more of your treasures in the coming days. hugs, #115

voodoo vixen said...

You have my sympathy, stealing heating oil really has to be hitting the lowest form of stealing other than grabbing pensioners' money outside the post office... sincerely hope the insurance pay out to cover it!!
Your westie looks like he had a brilliant time in the snow!!


Hi Jude,

Thanks very much for your supportive comments. Funnily enough we did write to our MP at the beginning of the year and he contacted Whitefriars (who are responsible for the man causing out trouble) and they wrote a letter back to our MP implying that it was all tit for tat and that I was failing to do what I needed which was contact the relevant people. At which point are MP disappeared from our view. In the light of current issues I am looking at writing to him again however :(

Zue said...

Sorry to hear about your theft, it really makes me cross that people have the nerve to do such an awful thing.
I tried to click on 'HERE' to find your paper bag creation, but the link is not there. Would have loved to have seen it.

Sue xx 78

Scrapcollectr said...

So sorry to hear about your predicament! Too bad the tank wasn't wired so they'd get a shock! hee hee, just the thought.... And venting is fine, we don't mind....

Thx for stopping by my blog... I have since posted The Card, if you're curious...

Happier days!

Chrissie said...

Very creative looking desk and a really cute piccie of the dog, I bet he enjoyed that roll around!

You know, 16 years ago when I left England and moved to the Detroit suburbs I had SOOO many people tell me what an awful place it was, street crime, dilapidated, car jacking, gun crime and god knows what else. And we've seen none of it, absolutely none. In 16 yrs. It's the sheer pettiness of folks nicking you oil and Ciara's lead flashing that just makes me shake my head in shame at the level of society in my own country now. I'm sorry, really sorry that you have to put up with this sort of thing at all.

On the upside though, that's a lovely tidy desk and such a cute Westie in the snow! Hope the insurance pays out.

Well I hope those thieving stinkers get what's coming to them! Jeepers. At least you have your cutie puppy to cheer you up with his snow antics.
