I remained calm tonight.

I remained calm when SonOfVirge sifted through his vague memories and told us that the last time he recalled seeing his trumpet was in the train home from school on Friday night.

I remained calm when we found (as expected) that our home and contents insurance doesn't cover misplaced items.

It is an uneasy calmness.

I cling to the hope that some honest person has turned it in to the railway's lost property office, or that perhaps SonOfVirge's memory is wrong and he's left it in a corner at WifeOfVirge's office, or left it somewhere unexpected at school. We don't have the financial resources to replace it.

It's hard to feel completely at peace with the world.

Update: It is found! :) It was at WifeOfVirge's office. Relief floods FamilyOfVirge.


Like I already told you, ouch, ouch and double ouch.

I hope it gets found.

How on earth did you remain calm through all that? You're a better man than I am. Well, that's not hard, seeing as I'm not a man at all, but you know what I mean.
