Has everyone’s WordPress changed? It’s taken me ages to work out how to post this. I suppose I’ll have to get used to it.

Old Harry hailed me outside the village shop, “Your kitchen window’s ajar, so I left them eggs on’t sill. You wanna be careful you’ll get burgled.”
“Not round here, surely,” I replied.
“Not locals, they comes from the town to rob us. Soft touch see, with people leavin’ everything wide open.”
I hastened home, Harry had me worried.
Sure enough, the kitchen resembled a war zone. Smashed crockery, dislodged cooking implements and on the windowsill, broken eggs.
I shooed two screeching magpies back outside. Bloody security conscious Harry! Those eggs were the surest invitation to thieves and locals to boot.
