I think she (the wife) had better buy some lottery tickets for the various draws.

Last July the wife broke her phone (a Galaxy S2) just before we went on holiday, I ordered her a Galaxy S4 replacement and it arrived the day before we left on holiday, so she was a tad chuffed about that.

Roll on a few months to yesterday. She lost the phone. She had taken the kids to school and had used the phone to pay by phone for the parking. He she got home after the school run, and countless retracing her steps etc. etc. but to no avail. She contact the school in case it was found there, the contact the Police to report the loss, and she contact the phone company to block the phone.

Well surprise surprise, the Police phoned the house 3 times while I was out this morning, but left no message. I phoned the wife to say they had phoned and suggest she phone them back.

Yes, they have her phone and she can collect it from them.


To say I'm shocked and stunned is an understatement. Needless to say she is chuffed to bits, especially when I said I wasn't buying her another one...
