    11:25 - Saw some girl getting shopping out of car, begged her to use her phone
    11:30 - Called my sister too see if she had spare set of keys - response No.
    12:00 - After waiting 30 mins in cold, sister picked me up and took me home (lucklily one of my kids was home sick - she let me in)
    13:00 - At home with no money, no keys, no handbag with everything in it!
    14:00 - No phone numbers to call mates telling them I won't be joining them tonight (All stored in mobile phone which is in handbag with everything else!)
    16:00 - After moping around finally accepted weekend is looking bleak. Parent's back on Monday - have to wait unti then to get my life back!
