I regret to inform you that my house has been burgled while I was away on a holiday. The burglar opened the lock of the main gate with my own key and decamped with the valuables.
I usually return home from office at 6 pm. When I did not turn up for two days, the burglar must have concluded that I would not come on that fateful day.
I usually keep my keys in a chink in the inside of the outer wall. I should have taken the keys with me. Or I must have informed my neighbour facing my house of my holidaying. The burglar might not have entered the house had I been a bit careful.
