In an effort to keep myself organised and to prevent unecessary faffing about with keys, purse and mobile, I bought myself a little bag, just big enough to hold the three key items of my everyday goings on.
Jon is a key security conscious individual, I on the other hand lack the organisation required to carry out such a well defined role.
Yesterday we had to travel to Huddersfield and York re Jon's business.
"Your purse in on the kitchen table!" Jon informed me.
Great stuff! All I needed was cash/cards to buy lunch.
I was aware that I had not seen my bag for 24 hours, but I knew I had had a conversation on my mobile so I wasn't too worried.
"Have you got your phone?" Jon asked....I told him I hadn't but I wasn't worried due to the conversation thingy!
Last night, on our return home I decided to have a quick look, but found nothing!
As I let Wilma out for her evening stroll around the garden I used our home phone to ring my mobile.
In the dark, on the patio I could hear it ringing, so I toddled off to bed, somewhat reassured.
This morning as I was sorting the general everyday doings of the Nesbitt household I went in search of my mobile, assuming it was in the pick up.....
but I couldn't find the keys.
I phoned Jon at the workshop and asked him if he had noticed the pick up had been left unlocked, locked it not knowing my bag was inside containing keys & phone.
"Quite possibly!" Was his reply.
We have spare keys so using these I unlocked the pick up and had a good search!
Came back into house & called my mobile from the house phone.
Once again I could hear it.
I walked round the house, drive and finally the garden.
There was the sound coming loud and clear......from the area next to the chickens!
I followed the sound and sure enough, there in the branches of the sycamore was my bag containig my phone and keys.
I remembered, on coming home Mabel, the wayward hen had escaped and I had gone over to urge her back to the safety of the chicken run!
Putting my bag in a safe place to allow me to deal with the situation!
All is well!
Another typical day in the Nesbitt household, where, it doesn't matter if you are crazy but it sure helps you fit in with everone else!
