So I promised you a story....

....well there was that visit to the police station....making my first police report ever....where my american english was quickly translated to scottish english....I wish I could remember all the phrases used, but....my head was in other places.

Bad News:  All my money was stolen out of my hotel room!
Good News:  I didn't have to deal with it alone....nice having an advisor and her husband around....I switched hotels (to a nicer one at that) and the hotel reimbursed me out of pocket for what I lost!  PTL!  and my passport was still there!

The whole event left me a little shaken and it was hard to focus after that, but there was much to be thankful for in the situation!


Hopf Link (for the math people)

Bad News:  I lost my scarf....yes the one that I made the matching hat for....the day I found my money gone....we called around...it isn't to be found!
Good News:  I'm a knitter!  I can cope!  Just an excuse to make a new one!


Bad News:  Not much knitting got done on the trip.  Most of this sock (it is the Leyburn pattern)
Good News:  I got lots of math done!  and found out I really like Lorna's Laces sock yarn!

Bad News: I hate jet lag!
Good News:  My Austermann Step sock are out of time out and progressing quite well!

I love the Leyburn pattern - hopefully that's the next pair I'll make!

How awful that your money was stolen. I'm really impressed and a little surprised to hear that the hotel reimbursed you. What a blessing!

Bea said...

OH no! Its good you got the money back from the hotel and you stayed somewhere better after that.

I'm so glad you had good news to follow the bad. Bum rap that. So glad you had the advisor around.
