I realise you don’t normally do this but I found an envelope of cash on Saturday at 5.30pm near Zeba Hair Salon on South William Street, Dublin 2. I’d rather not send a pic of envelope as the only evidence is a girl’s first name written in black biro. The writing says:
With totals beside each day. I’ve reported it to Gardai.

I know you don’t normally do this but I’ve lost my favourite watch :-( I was cycling in town with it in my pocket and it must have fallen out – coming from the liberties towards Drumcondra via Patrick Street then Dorset Street. It’s quite new but there is a dark line on the strap underneath the buckle. If anyone sees it please let me know.


Update:  Meg writes: The watch has been found, back in the Liberties, in the pocket of a hoodie, turns out it never left the house!

I know you don’t usually do this, but this weekend we lost my son Felix’s extremely beloved duck on the Number 77 bus from Pearse Street [Dublin]. It was around 5pm, and we got on at Pearse St and off at Cork St. Dublin Bus lost property doesn’t operate at the weekends, and by the time we called, there was no sign of Ducky.
If anybody saw Ducky and could give us a lead, it would be amazing. Alternatively, if anyone has any ideas about where we could get a replacement Ducky. We won him at a fair in the Green Door Market on Newmarket Square at the beginning of the summer – I think it was for the Hope Foundation…
