Solve the Mystery II

Three Thieves
Read the story and try to solve it. Please send the solution by mail (alejandra.quaglia) or you can give it to me in hand. If you are right you will be given house points.

Sherlock Holmes apprehended three thieves; Robert, Walter, and Frank. Each of them had robbed a house in a different part of London at approximately the same time. Robert, who the oldest, didn’t commit his crime in Ealing, and Walter didn't rob the house in Clapham. The one who robbed the house inEaling didn't steal the gold watch. The one who robbed the house in Clapham stole the landscape painting. Walter didn't steal the silver coins.
In what part of London did Frank commit his crime and what did he steal?

Making Excuses...

Clara F from 6B brought a book to school about making excuses called "No Excuses" How What You Say Can Get In Your Way" by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. This is what it says:

" To make or not to make excuses is a choice you have every day. Now here is another choice: you can throw away the list of excuses and make a promise to yourself that you will not let excuses get in your way. Without excuses, you are free to be anything you want to be!"
What do you think?
Thank you Clara!
