Yesterday, I learned that a doorman in Notting Hill found my handbag, along with my friend's wallet, and when we picked it up, everything was there except £80 and my mobile phone.
Including my Obama buttons (worth a fortune in London!), my IDs, my credit card (which we've cancelled) and my other cards.
So, I'm good.
I'm very impressed with the Notting Hill police. They've contacted me twice, to update the police report I filed online. They may even fingerprint my handbag and cards, though it's probably too late.
I never expected such follow-up after what was a relatively minor crime. Thames Valley police could learn a thing or two.
If they find a suspect, maybe I'll get to participate in an identity parade. That sounds like a lot of fun!
