I Bet this Guy Used to Lose his Notebooks



My students are notorious for losing their jumpers, hats, pencils and notebooks. Sometimes I wonder what they will be like when they grow up. I hope they don’t end up losing their wedding ring in a river:

The jubilant moment a relieved groom found his wedding ring after he lost it in a river has been captured on camera.

Richard Ford’s cherished platinum band slipped off his finger while he was paddleboarding with a group of friends along the River Tame, in Tamworth, Staffordshire, on July 14.

The 30-year-old, from Tamworth, who got married last August to primary school teacher Jen, also 30, only discovered the ring was missing when he had travelled half-a-mile down the river.

Richard and his friends then spent 24 hours scouring the bottom of the river bed to try and find it.

Richard, a joiner, explained said: ‘We were on the river when I realised it was missing. I was devastated – I’m not into jewellery, but it is so special to me, it felt like I had lost part of my soul.
