MUM Mary Fisher never admits to being out of the house on social media in case she gets burgled.
56-year-old Fisher even went so far as to post status updates pretending to be in her living room while actually on holiday in America.
She wrote: ““What a great episode of EastEnders we just watched at home.”
However the effect was undermined by the message appearing at 1.40am due to the time difference.
Fisher’s daughter Emma added: “We were both at my friend’s baby shower last weekend and at one point I checked Facebook and saw she’d posted that she was enjoying a lovely sit in her garden with a good book.
“I thought she must have left but then I looked across the room and saw her struggling to eat a piece of cake and drink a gin and tonic at the same time.”
Burglar Tom Booker said: “She’s a wily one. But she’ll slip up one day and then that old telly of hers will be mine.”
