Yesterday was the worst day in a long time. It started off early when we left in plenty of time in the morning to go the the airport. The plan was to have breakfast there like we always do. As we got onto the freeway, we hit a bottle neck and traffic came to a dead stop. They where working on the roads. It took us a 3/4 hour to pass there. Even Henry was stressing that we were not going to make the flight. We got through and the traffic was free flowing. We would make it. Then we got to the Toll Gate. Ten lanes were open. Directly after the toll, they were working on the roads and only 2 lanes were open. Have you ever tried to squeeze 10 into 2 when there are trucks, busses, taxis and cars all wanting to go to the same place at the same time. We made it to the airport with 5 minutes to spare. No time for breakfast. Boarded and managed to get a sandwhich and a cup of coffee after 1pm. Got home safely. Son-in-Law took everything out of the car and we started bringing in the cases. Somehow one stayed behind. It was a case of 'I thought you brought it in.....' So we lost: All my best jewelry, (luckily only costume jewelry but still about $100 worth). My favorite necklace that just goes with everything and quite a few bracelets. 3 advocado pears that we carted all the way from down the Wild Coast. Biiiig butter pears. Hope they were bitter. My whole months supply of prescription medicine. Blood pressure tablets and HRT just renewed the day before we left. Pretty expensive to replace. And dangerous to the person that took it. Hope it was not a child. The GPS (Satnav), a very good one. But worst of all, MY CAMERA. I love my camera. All the wedding, family and holiday photos, all gone. Henry took photos of the farm house where he lived with his Granddad as a child. We went out of our way to go take the photos. Also I bought a lot of rusks and cookies from a speciality store in PMB. All gone. Oh yes, the gift my sister gave me as well. I am really crying about that and my photos and camera. All the other things can be replaced. Well no use crying over spilt milk. I must just move on. It's back to a point and shoot for me for a while. I suppose I should be thankful that my laptop was not in the case. I always put it in there. I carried it myself this time around because the case was too full. I am never going on holiday again.<br><br>My Worst Day should read, My Worst Week. <br>So after the bag going missing, a lady bumped my car. Today my DH got hit by a taxi. The *** driver was waiting in a parking area for a passenger and Henry crossed the road in front of him, The driver then decided to pull away at a speed while keeping his eye on his passenger. He knocked Henry on the knee and spun him around. Praise the Lord, he was not hurt. I will see tomorrow if he is stiff at all. <u>That's me done for the week</u>. The rest of the week has been cancelled due to lack of interest. <img class="bbc_emoticon" alt="
