I have had some good luck in the past few weeks with recovering lost things!
The last thing I lost was my Pocket PC, which fell out of my bag just before Christmas. But I was able to recover it just after Christmas – such a relief! Someone honest had found it and handed it in at the shop I had visited.
Not long before that my whole bag fell off my bike and I didn’t realise until a few minutes later. When I went back to find it I could not find it anywhere. Turns out that someone had found it and handed it in to an office close to where I lost it. Huzzah for honest people! (My bag happened to be choc full of gadgets and goodies that day – I could never have afforded to replace the stuff in it, likewise I could not even afford just a new Pocket PC).
I suppose it was bad luck to lose them in the first place, as the losses caused me considerable stress, but it was so good to find them again, and it made me appreciate my stuff all the more!
And now, my Pocket PC is getting lots of organisin’ lovin’ again – I’ve installed a new application (My Life Organised) and some extra memory (which is not working, but hopefully will work later).
