A coincidence story today from Suzie who often leaves comments on 67 Not Out.
"As you know, Mike, I was away for a holiday in France and ventured across the English Channel by ferry with my car and, oh yes, my boyfriend, I nearly forgot!
We had parked our car at the docks and I got out to have a walk about after our journey down from London.
As I wandered in the drizzle I bent down and picked up a piece of paper. I don't know why I did this but when I looked it was actually a £5 banknote all neatly folded into quarters. My lucky day, I thought.
After about an hours wait we drove our car onto the ferry with my findings safely in my bag.
Once in France we set off driving to our destination. I decided I wanted a cup of French coffee so we pulled into a service station and went into their cafe.
Coffee over I went to find the loo. As I did so there on the floor was another folded bank note, but this time it was a €5 european banknote. The funny part is that this was also folded neatly into four quarters just like my £5.
We had a good break, the weather wasn't too special but the gite was in a romantic setting, so we managed to put our time to good use, if you know what I mean.
Holiday over and back in London I phoned my mother to tell her how we got on while in France, some of it that is. We talked away and at the end she said, "I found a £5 note this morning. It was on the pavement outside our house, all folded in four."
