Monochrome Monday and some things on my mind
My Black Friday/ Cyber Monday sale is still on - get your ticket to the in-person OR online workshop. And while you're there, you can read about my simple Christmas so I don't have to rewrite it here :)
Last week I decided not to do a Monochrome Monday post and then even Jenty joined in *blush* :)
So this week we're ON!
Last weekend it was raining and cold so I told the kids I'd make them some tea.
When we got home, I couldn't find their (rooibos) tea.
I sent messages to Nanny S (old nanny - baby still hasn't arrived for those interested) and new nanny M.
No-one knew where about the tea.
It's not a box of tea - I store the tea bags in a glass sweet jar i received as a thank-you gift from a broker 18 YEARS AGO for getting a payment done super quick.
Did you get that? 18 years ago.
It's the only thing I have from that company and it was a very nice sweet jar. Of course it was, otherwise I wouldn't have kept it.
Do you know how crazy this makes me?
Does anyone know that story in the Bible where the woman loses a coin and turns her whole house upside down?
That day I made them hot chocolate instead, and D had to make a special dash into the shops after church on the Sunday to get some more tea bags.
It's not the tea bags. Who cares about R15?
It's the fact that one weekend it was there and the next weekend it wasn't. I make them tea when I make my afternoon tea so I know it was there the previous weekend.
I don't want to accuse people but where is the jar of tea?
I've turned the kitchen upside down like a woman possessed and nothing. I just went through the pantry one more time.... super carefully....nothing. I'm going to do the same with the sideboard and that blue cupboard (those who've visited know that blue cupboard) and hopefully I find it.
The kids insist they know nothing about it. Granted, I store it up quite high and they've reached for sweets before , but never for tea bags ;)
So, if you were a glass jar full of teabags, where would you hide?
(I actually do ask myself this question when I "lose" things)
How do you react to things you can't find?
(PS this is why I'm organised - because I can't STAND it when I can't find things)
PS I accidentally put this child in time out today and I need to apologise in the morning because D told me the whole story came out later and there was much more to it than what I first thought
Which is your favourite black and white picture?
