Rural crime means we just don't feel safe in our homes any more
Locked doors, alarm and dog on patrol. It's my routine now
I can't sleep soundly until I know the house alarm is set, my Rottweiler is on patrol and my bedroom door is locked.
This is a new routine.
Night after night I end up telling myself, 'Claire, just get up and lock the door, it's better to be safe than sorry'.
