A quick update for those enquiring
Our car has not been found and the courtesy car was only for 2 weeks. However we are very blessed to have a son who has lent us his car for the moment.
The stress of having our home broken into in the middle of the night while we were asleep and our car, that we had purchased only 3 months ago, stolen almost pales into insignificance when dealing with the insurance company.
They have offered £3,000 less than we paid for it and sent a cheque for £10 to cover personal possessions that were in the car which totalled £228. My mobile phone which was stolen from the house comes under a different insurance so no point claiming for this. Unfortunate that I lost my watch and a camera chip just afterwards too.
I wonder if the thieves have any idea of the affect they have on other people's lives. I can only continue to pray for them.
Thank you to everyone for their loving E-mails and comments. Much appreciated.
Now lets take a trip back to July and revisit an enjoyable walk around Sherborne which we did after our visit to the castle.
Sherborne has an abundance of medieval buildings, a magnificent Abbey, world famous schools and two castles (last post).
It is a delightful shopping town and has become an important centre for art and antiques. There are also cafes, inns and tearooms aplenty.
Walking through the archway to the Abbey
The Abbey church was once the Cathedral of 26 Saxon Bishops of West Wessex from 705 ad - 1078 ad
Sir Walter Rayleigh worshipped here and the Abbey today is still the home of a vibrant Christian community
The Almshouses were built in 1457 ad and Sherborne School which was originally Monastic in 1550 ad
Views around the Abbey Close
And back into the town
Where like many English old towns it is fun to look through the archways along the main streets
Hope you enjoyed
