The start to today has been different! We have lost five tea spoons with bright red handles. If we'd lost one or two it wouldn't have been noticed or missed but five going missing at once has been.
They belong to a set which for years lived on our boat. They shared all our holidays afloat and for sentimental reasons I am fond of them.
They made the transition to a house and being kept in a cutlery drawer well. We have used them here every day since we moved in!
Today there is just one left in the drawer! It's been on its own all week so the hunt for the lost ones is in progress.
This morning I have taken the rubbish bags and bounced them! No sound of jingling can be detected! I have rummaged through old and smelly food containers.
I have of course looked in the dishwasher, all the drawers in the kitchen and dining room. They are gone!
I have got other spoons, stainless steel , silver, ancient battered ones with ivory handles! But I want my red ones back!
Somewhere the spoon fairy is hoarding them....they are very colourful.....but I do want them back. Hoarding fairies everywhere take note....five spoons together can not just disappear.......when I find them there will be general rejoicing!
