Something of a surprise late entry this one, if I'm honest. Not a surprise I didn't enjoy it, obviously, surprise that it happened at all. It's certainly not something you find on people's bucket list.
On the end-of-term Friday before Christmas, our house was broken into. Nothing was stolen, but I was beaten by two men - one of whom punched me on the lefthand side of my head while his colleague very deliberately hit me with a crowbar half a dozen times or more on the righthand side of my head. Given the option, I would very strongly recommend against because it's really very painful and you end up looking like this the morning after.
I have a longer thing written, but I'm sitting on it until the police investigation concludes. Right now, I think we're still waiting on forensic evidence. Real life forensics moves much more slowly than on the telly, especially over Christmas and New Year.
