Now, here’s a thing. Yesterday I took Hedgers to the station. Later in the day I went to the gym, then went and bought a long piece of wood from Wickes, came home, locked the car and came into the house. Once in, I went through to the main room to put the wood down, and then came to my desk, where I stayed for the rest of the evening.
When it came to fetching Hedgers from the station late in the evening, I felt in my pocket for the car key: not there. Ooops, I must have hung it up, though I had no memory of doing so; I went to the place where the keys live on hooks: not there.
It is nowhere. It is in no place between the front door and the main room, it is not in the main room, it is not on my desk, it is not under my desk, it is not in any of my pockets (I emptied them out and made quite sure), it in not in the kitchen or the loo or the hall, it is not on the drive outside…
Luckily we have two keys to the car so I was able to fetch Hedgers, though slightly late for all the looking, but the key still hasn’t appeared. Any ideas where the blank it might be? I have gone through the waste-paper baskets in case it had fallen into one of those, and Hedgers has taken the recycling out to the main bin and put it in there one piece at at time, and we haven’t found it. Sudden Daughter looked for it without success. Waaaaaah?
