Good ko­rma, lost wed­ding ring emerges from curry

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

MOTHER- OF- TWO An­nie Robb will al­ways be glad she de­frosted her freezer be­fore mov­ing house. Twelve months ear­lier her hus­band Chris had thought he’d lost his white gold wed­ding ring while play- ing foot­ball with friends.

He even combed the pitch for 45 min­utes and used a metal de­tec­tor to try to lo­cate it. But the cou­ple from Hert­ford­shire in Eng­land, even­tu­ally con­cluded the en­graved ring was gone for good.

That is un­til Mrs Robb, 50, spot­ted a long- for­got­ten frozen take­away meal last week. “We’ve just sold our house, so I de­cided to clear out the freezer,” she said. “There was a dodgy look­ing curry in there, so I got it out. I was go­ing to throw it away but I wanted to de­frost it so there was no wa­ter in the bin.”

As the curry de­frosted, she was as­ton­ished to spot the ring emerg­ing. De­scrib­ing the mo­ment she found it, she said: “I could see some­thing that looked like a bot­tle top. It was all shiny and sparkly. It was just in­cred­i­ble. I couldn’t speak.”
