Subject: On doors. And keys.
Security: Public
Yesterday morning, on leaving the house, I was convenienced by the fact my keys were still in the front door lock.

This morning, I noticed the back door was unlocked and not actually latched.

I'm wondering whether to leave my keys in the ignition tonight.

If you do, give me enough warning to get over that way. I could do with a new car.

I thought you had one.

And anyway, you probably wouldn't like the cost of feeding it.

I was thinking of replacing the Kia.
Though on reflection I don't think the Kia is worth what it would probably cost to feed yours for a month...

Actually, mine is cheap to feed as long as I only use it for commuting. Not like the Audi was when I was first using it.

Mind you, dropping from 95 miles to 3 miles a day round trip does help in that. But it's a few percent more thirsty on long distances, probably because though the engine is much the same size (2.5 as opposed to 2.6, both V6, no turbo), it's heavier and an automatic.

If I were still doing 25K+ per year, I'd be wincing.

Oh dear. We do this from time to time, too.

After this last weekend (Picon in London, Caro's birthday gathering in Cambridge, and then a Sunday barbeque in Oxfnord), forgetting one or two things was probably to be expected.

When living on Ross Street, I came home after work one day to notice that the front door was ajar. Given that it was a Romsey house opening directly onto the pavement, I was happy to find no evidence of anybody actually entering.

Oops. Sorry dear, that was me - well, couldn't really have been anyone else really :-)(I was outside yesterday evening doing unspeakable things with litter trays)I know the cats are desperate to get out but talented as they are, they have yet to master unlocking the back door.

I was bemused that you'd not noticed the keys hanging in the front door lock yesterday morning. But then, you'd close the door behind you without necessarily looking closely at the door.
