Last year I bought these cute little Christmas stockings, and, too cheap to buy pre-cut felt letters, I painstakingly cut these letters out and stuck them on and don't they just look so perfect?
One year to come, it seems.
For this year, they are lost. Totally lost. I have searched high and low for them for weeks. The last time I saw them was a few months ago when I cleared out the linen cupboard, found them, and thought, "I'd better put these with the Christmas stuff." Surely, you'd think, they would have been in the Christmas stuff when we went to put up the tree this year? Nope.
Back in the linen cupboard? Nope.
In some handy storage place somewhere else in the house? Nope.
My cupboards? Buzz's? Jessie's? Woody's? Mr de Elba's? Nope.
Any sensible place in the house? Nope.
Any unsensible place in the house? Nope.
For ease, I will now list for you where I have not yet checked:
- the filing cabinet
- the radiator of the car
- the shed
- inside an old CRT TV
That's all. I've looked everywhere else, I promise. It seems that they have made their way into some cardboard box of junk and gone to the dump.
There's no other explanation.
