I found 50€. I was actually looking for my vaccination card (seems I've either lost it or I left it at my parents' home and they lost it, because they can't find it, neither) and there, stuck behind a drawer was a slightly creased 50E bill. So actually I'm not really richer now. Nevertheless it brought a smile to my face. :D

Of course you're richer! Unless you can remember losing it in the first place. Do you need to pay for a new vaccination card?

Well I'm richer !!!

I WON LOTTO !

Okay... not the whole thing... $6

Score! Went and got a large Boost Juice. Mangos. Watermelon. Orange. Ginger. Beetroot. Celery. Lemon. Raspberry. AND they upgraded it because two or three people got served before me!

After drinking bottles and bottles of water all day I finally felt properly hydrated.

That reminds me of my old boss. Came back from the sales with the car full of new clothes. Told her husband, I've saved a fortune. His shriek back, Yes J, but how much did you have to spend to save the fortune?!!! :shock:

I'm richer? All the better. :D
No, as far as I know I don't have to pay for the card. I'll have to check with the doctor who vaccinated me 11 or so years ago if he still has a record. If he hasn't they'll take a blood sample and test which antibodies I have. This might involve some cost, but I'm confident my insurance will cover that. If not that'd be a disappointment but I'd pay myself without a second thought. Health is worth more than money.

finding forgotten money still feels like I got extra pocket money to me. :D

Mind you, we buy a lot online and call the parcels that arrive presents. We're great at cheating ourselves like that! :roll:

I went to the Post Office this morning, to get a colleague 1 book of 2nd class Christmas stamps.

I walked in, got served straight away (their infernal ticket machine is out of order!!), and then spent five minutes waiting whilst they searched the building for Christmas stamps.

SECOND class stamps???? Isn't that some sort of stampism ?

Are they not as pretty? Is the glue not as sticky? Do they have to travel in the back of the Post Van?

Poor little stamps...
