late easter bracelets

Post by Puschkin63 on Fri Apr 01, 2016 3:15 pm

It is a little bit embarrassing why I have not posted lately, but I tell it anyway...
I have been travelling two weeks ago and we (my colleague and myself) took the train to the airport. My colleague's wife brought us to the train station. However, when I entered the train with my cabin trolley and suitcase I suddenly realised I had left my purse at the platform affraid ... and it had virtually everything inside I need: passport, credit cards, driver license, keys...everything. So we got off the next station and meanwhile my colleague had called his wife, so she would return to the train station asap. While we were waiting for the train back my colleague said it would be worth calling my mobile that was also in my purse... and somebody answered the call! I was so happy telling him I am so glad he found my purse and I would be on my way back ...He said, yes, he had found it and would wait for me. Meanwhile my colleague's wife had been back and found my purse in the underground way connecting the platforms and the guy with my mobile approached her... Whatever, when I got it back only the money was missing, everything else seemed to be in place cheers I offered the guy with my mobile money (that I had to borrow from my colleague), but he said he would be from Arabia and too proud to accept money, it would be an honour to give it back.
While waiting for the train to the airport again the guy came back asking me whether I would be missing my i-pad (that I had put in the purse last minute) and the person who took it would return it to me at the Cologne train station (where I needed to switch trains anyway). Then he made several phone calls I could not understand and finally he said it would not be possible to meet in Cologne, but they would send me my i-pad by mail. And really.... I got it back yesterday cheers  That is the very short version of my story ...

So overall I was quite lucky only the money was gone (about 150 EUR) and I could continue my travel...
and now with my i-pad back and can post again...

Back to the subject: my easter bracelets: the colourful was made on Easter Sunday and I am wearing the pink-grey one today...

Wow that is quite a story, most important is that you have gotten back your wallet and Ipad.
I love your bracelets, both are very cheerfull and make me happy to look at. I am wearing my chicken and hens on a daily bracelet now, they are to pretty to be only worn with Easter.

actually it was not only my wallet, but the entire handbag (including keys and more). I should not use the word purse (is this American English???)

Amazing story and hearing things like this restored your faith in humanity:o)

And your eggy combos are wonderful!

Happy Spring!

(To me a purse is a handbag or pocketbook, whereas a wallet is what you put your money in)

You are very fortunate to get back so much from your handbag. It is so hard to replace such things!

Glad to see your combos.

I apologize for only reading your post now, I had been travelling, too, beginning of April and was a bit out of the loop.

Your story really makes me happy - not of course that you lost your money, but that there are honest people out there still and probably many more than we think!

And your bracelet is absolutely stunningly beautiful Love

Absolutely GORGEOUS Easter bracelets! I love them both and actually would love to use your pink/grey one as inspiration for a new one I'm planning.

So glad to hear you got most everything back, indeed too bad about the cash but all the rest would have been way harder to replace. You were very fortunate. I know there are still a majority of honest people in this world but it's so nice to hear a good story like that.

All things considering, I am glad things went so well for you.

Your combos are so cheerful. Love to see the Hen. I only have the Rooster, which I wear in an all-silver combo.
