Christmas flew and why we didn't

We had a lovely Christmas eve & Christmas day with our families.
Christmas just flew by for us.

It got away on me at the last minute on the 23rd after a little drama with our credit card and tickets to Canada and other items we did NOT purchase overseas totalling $13K.

The bank detected 4 suspicious transactions- Nigeria, Uruguay & ? only intercepting the last.They called DH who may or may not have thought I was having a holiday without him. A frantic phone call to me ensued.We were confident the bank had it under control. The credit card was cancelled due to the fraudulent activity.

Though we had more angst trying to get a low value credit card (incidentally we have just for internet & phone purchases) increased temporarily till new cards arrive. A had to use my lot louder voice to make them see reason - we had to live the next 2 weeks and we have automatic deductions from our account.

Finally after an hour, resulting in the transfer to our local manager, it was sorted by the push of a button.Literally before my eyes the limit magically increased.

The next day Dh's other credit card's entire network (different bank) was shutdown due to fraud (not us we hope) which he only discovered when he went to buy fuel, and it was declined.It makes you wonder how easy it is for the thieving mongels... so 'Be Aware'.

I digress ... Now my next wish for you is
