Lost my wallet. Looked all over the house, in the car, amongst the clothes, and anywhere else I could think of. Nothing.
Drove to the cafe to get coffee. Tried to pay by contactless on mobile. Credit card declined.
More panic 😧
Drove to the sports park (Gym) – the last place I’d been with the wallet. Checked if anyone had returned a lost wallet. Nada.
Drove back home.
One last check – between the cushions of the sofa.
And there it is. Hidden tight between the cushions.
*breathing again* 😌

It’s about men getting to do things they want – cook, knit, cry in public, sing, wear beautiful pink shirts.
It’s about women getting to do things they want – drive lorries, develop AIs, fix plumbing, wear blue-grey suits, drink beer, and laugh out loud in public.
Or vice versa. Or both. Or neither.
It’s about everyone getting to be, and do, what they want, without the fear of repercussions – formal, informal, social, legal, or even just a slanted eye look.

These ratios are roughly equal…
The ratio of benefit queens, to total number receiving benefit checks.
The ratio of savings from tax cuts invested back in that country to create more jobs, to total savings from tax cuts for rich & corporates.
It started with this photo of Dubrovnik on Instagram
It mentioned ‘Siege of Dubrovnik’, so looked it up to read on it.
From there, went to read about Operation Tiger (1992), and the Battle of Konavle.
In parallel tabs, also read about the Bay of Kotor and the peninsula of Prevlaka.
Bay of Kotor, lead to reading about Karstification, Montenegro, town of Herceg Novi, and (from Montenegro) about a 12 Km long beach called Velika Plaža. Montenegro seems like a good, slightly off-beat place to visit.
At this point, I took a detour from Wikipedia to Google maps, and spent a while exploring the region… Mainly bay of Kotor.
Returning to Wikipedia, resumed with the war articles. Next up, from Operation Tiger in 1992, to Operation Storm in 1995. It was, apparently, the biggest land battle in Europe since WW2!
Also open, though yet to be read, are articles on Operation Summer (1995), State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs, and Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (1918–1929).
Think they’ll last me the night 🙂

Sightly pissed at li’l R, at the moment. Due to her wedding, R is leaving us for 3 weeks!
I may love li’l R most of the time, but not when she’s taking away my only human friend, partner, and contact 🙁
