In May this year I bought three necklaces. One for my friend Talya, and two for myself. The gold one I chose is for everyday wear at work. And the white gold necklace is for when I am dressing up to go out at night. Two days after we got back from overseas my gold one went missing. I did not tell Dave as I already had the saga with my missing watch strap. A few days later my beautician called to say I had left it at her when I had my appointment. I was quite relieved to know I had not lost it. But the relief only lasted a week, as no sooner had I got it back from her, it went missing again. A week later one of my staff members found it lying next to my desk.

When I had put it on, I had not clasped it properly and luckily for me it fell off at work, and had not been vacuumed up. You would think I would have learnt from that, but I have not. Because several days later I put the white gold necklace on, and proceeded to get ready to go out. And the next thing I saw was Holly playing with something that was not her rope! It was my necklace. She was tossing it about and the sparkle caught my eye. Luckily so, as I would have hated for her to have swallowed it by mistake. I am now doubly cautious when putting the necklaces on the make sure they are properly secured. Have you ever lost a piece of jewellery and then found it days or weeks later?
