Stressed Saturday evening

We went out on Saturday with the folks and had a great day out at the Happy Hollow Park in San Jose.

Then on the way home, Elliot “NEEDED” some Fruity Pebbles breakfast cereal.  So as Vicky got out of the car at Safeway near the house, somehow her purse fell to the floor outside of the car as she got out, but she didn’t notice.  Then of course found that her purse was missing (her new monogrammed LV item that she got from the boys for Christmas 🙁 ) when trying to pay for said Fruity Pebbles.  Nobody had handed it in, nor seen it….. So we left our number just in case and went home to cancel the cards.

Stress kicked in as we realized driving licenses, Costco cards, Doctor cards and all our debit and credit cards as well as all manner of other important items were in said purse.

Amy and Jason came around for tea, and kindly brought some flowers to help brighten Vicky’s spirits.

Today, Vicky printed some reward posters to pop in the Safeway store on the off chance that someone had indeed picked it up and kept to give back to the owner at a later date.  Incredibly the customer services people had a phone message from a lady who had indeed picked up the purse and had kept hold of it for fear of it going missing once she had left it in Safeway’s “safe” custody.

So, we arranged to pick it up today and indeed it was safe and in one piece with nothing missing at all – Vicky has had s VERY lucky day today.  The lady had tried calling all the telephone numbers on the back of all the cards in an attempt to figure out where to find the owner. The people of Los Gatos are simply incredible people – honesty is in the job description 🙂

We then took Elliot and Olly for their first bike ride on their own bikes. See the photo attached….

We have enjoyed 2 wonderful days in great sunshine and temperatures that would be great for a UK summer day – 21 degrees Celcius – just awesome 🙂
