That box of Polyfilla that I know I put in the cupboard under the sink. I've since bought ANOTHER one but it still infuriates me that I can't find the first one.

Some books I haven't read

Two summer handbags that I only use during summer I put they away 18mths ago and don't have a clue where they are.

I'm still hunting for my grandmother's secret stash of diamonds but no luck so far!
We did find a box of books etc. that we shoved away in a corner to be unpacked 'one day' when we have time! That was when we move nearly five years ago blush
If I find the diamonds I'll send you all a card from my desert island! grin

The mates of all the single earrings I’ve accumulated. Preferably before I send them all to the Alzheimer’s Society jewellery appeal.

A pair of expensive leather sandals I haven't seen since we moved house a couple of years ago. Beginning to think may have gone in bag for charity shop in error. ☹️

A pink jumper that I'm fond of. It isn't in the moth-proof zip-up bag where I keep my woollies so by now the moths may have found it, wherever it has gone. I've searched under the bed just in case!

The book that goes with the mobility’s being collected next week and I’ve searched the house!

I would love to find some of my late mother’s embroidery. She did some beautiful pieces and I dont seem to have one. It would make me so happy to find even a tiny piece.

Also my ex gave our son a little Snowy hand puppet and I would love to find it again. DS isn’t bothered but I loved it and it will take me back to a happy time.

A opal and diamond ring that was my mothers. I had it after she died but didn't wear it often as it was so delicate. Now it's not in my jewellery box, been missing at least 5 years. I wonder if I put it in a handbag when visiting someone, with a view to possibly wearing it. Cannot find it anywhere.

A £20 note that I put aside to give to DGS two months ago, I remember putting it in a ‘safe place’ ( wherever that was!)
