A few days ago, Natasha found a couple of small items that we thought were lost during the relocation move, stuffed into a decorative box that we did not think had anything inside. A souvenir small Russian wooden bowl, one of the hedgehogs from Becky’s collection, that type of stuff. We sort of gave up on finding them already, and they weren’t either expensive or otherwise too important to us to claim damages from the relocation company, and as it turns out, they were in the house all the time anyway.
With that, we are happy to conclude that we cannot think of anything that was broken, damaged or altogether lost during our relocation from the UK. I think most of the corporate relocations end up with fairly minimal losses, but our return experience must have been accompanied by exceptional luck.
Too bad I did not think of channeling that luck into winning a lottery or something.
