But no, my sweet, I gently correct her.

You are doing that check. Then a growing realisation. Oh dear, where is my bank card wallet? I am on the express train to the centre of Beijing. I am in China for the next ten days. Where is my bank card wallet?

There's a very particular prickle of panic that I expect we've all experienced. You are moving on from Balenciaga Bag Blue Price

Just a germ of doubt has settled on me though. Buckling the belt across my braces I call Lloyds myself. We begin once again the dance of the security questions.

All is not totally lost. I have with me a wad of Chinese currency from my last trip ( could you keep schtum about that. Despite the fact that China is sitting on some xty squillion of US dollars and a huge slice of the world's gold reserves, I have an inkling that, technically, it remains a capital offence to carry even a single yuan out of the country.)

I left the UK with the boy Cameron exhorting export folk rediscover the old British buccaneering spirit. All well and good. But learn from me, me hearties. Balenciaga Zip Around Wallet

Call Lloyds to report cards missing. At the end of that call, comes the heart warming news that a replacement card or cash can be delivered to Beijing. I barely suppress my earnest wish to propose marriage to the customer service person ( he does seems a very personable chap). Just need to transfer you to Visa, sir. Unfortunately, the line to Visa in the States appears to be via a length of rather threadbare cotton.

A few hours later there is a voice message from Visa. I call them. More courtesy ensues but they need me to speak to my bank. They transfer me via the threadbare cotton. A new English voice advises me that don't appear to be a customer. Yer what ? (Jet lag means I have had two hours sleep in the last twenty four so a touch of tetchiness enters the exchange). You are not a customer of TSB, sir. No that's right, I agree. I am with Lloyds. (Cancel the wedding with the Visa lady) I will pass this documentation to them post haste, says he. Righto, say I.

Maybe if you imagine the letters in each phrase getting bigger and bolder till the last 'oh dear' is the scale of the full page broadsheet you see in films bellowing 'WAR DECLARED', you will get a fuller sense of the mood.)

That bank is no more. My account is with Lloyds. We say our goodbyes. Thank you, say I. My pleasure says she. Thanks again, Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Tote says I. My pleasure say she. Clearly her script demands she has the closing word I defer.

The issue with this of course is that if I were If I was sufficiently anal retentive to recall all of the recent transactions they quiz me about to convince them I am indeed me then I wouldn't be the sort of clot who mislays his bank cards when he is 5,000 miles from home. I probably wouldn't get out very much at all but that's neither here or there.

But still everyone is very helpful I am beginning seriously to consider trigamy rather than just dull old bigamy. Fighting the static on the line I spell out the impenetrable address of my hotel. Amid the fuzz, she checks the issuing bank is Lloyds TSB ?

But I see you weary of my tale. I will pass on my treks across Beijing in search of a Western Union office, or of the encounter in the Western Union with the three Uzbek matrons each with a mouth full of gold teeth or indeed of my journey on Balenciaga City Edge

So, I am indeed me. Replacement card and cash? says she. I know nothing of these facilities (cancel the same sex ceremony too). We parlay a little more then I am handed further into the Lloyds help line maze. I just need to ask you . A pirouette just one more time through the shaming ignorance of my own finances.

First problems, first. Check in to hotel. Can I swipe your card, sir ? I have lost it. OK sir. Check in concludes. So I will be spared sleeping in the street. Things are looking up already.

You are doing that check. Then a growing realisation. Oh dear, where is my bank card wallet. I have just got off a plane. I am now on the express train to the centre of Beijing. I am in China for the next ten days. Where is my bank card wallet. Oh, dear.

A to B and frisking yourself checking for phone, keys and the other paraphernalia, find an item is missing. A phut of annoyance, a further quick search and all is well.
