We recently went away on holiday. My DP went on a training course abroad, and we went out to join him a couple of weeks later.
My DP was really worried about our place getting burgled while we were away and instructed me to leave the car on the drive and get the train or a taxi to the airport.
As I would be travelling alone with 14month old DD and it's a three hour drive to the airport (and much longer and several changes by train), I thought this was a silly idea. So I instead drove to the airport and arranged for my parents to pop over 3 times over the 10 days we were away.
We do live in a rural area with no close neighbours, but it's not exactly a crime hotspot. We have never been burgled. Occasionally we get visited by shifty looking types asking for "scrap" but that's about as bad as it gets!
We returned from hols and there had been absolutely no problems. But my DP is still really p*ssed off with me for not doing as he had asked.
We got burgled whilst I was in bed with the DC's. There's no rhyme or reason sometimes. He is being U, especially as it would have taken you so long to get to airport with DD, and that there is nothing wrong on your return.
