Fortunately, Unfortunately

Rules are simple. One person starts a sentence saying “fortunately xxxx” and someone else responds “unfortunately xxxx” and so on. For example

Fortunately I got a new puppy
Unfortunately he ran away
Fortunately he came back with a £50 in his mouth.

You get the idea. I’ll start:
