Lost Souls (and car keys)

Have you ever lost anything? (other than your mind?)

I have just spent the whole weekend searching for something that I hadn't even lost in the first place (Ah the joys of being a mother)

Questions that followed included, "Where did you last see it?" (Seriously??? I didn't even lose it, in fact WHAT are we looking for?)

"Why don't you retrace your steps?" (Why don't you piss off) and my personal favourite "You know it will be in the last place you look don't you?"
(Well DUH, why would I continue to look AFTER I found it, of course it will be in the last place I look?)

What is it with things getting lost anyway? Certain things have a tendancy to get lost don't they? Car keys, Remote controls, small children, I'm still looking for one I misplaced recently, I think she's in the bathroom somewhere under a pile of clothes, (I'm not looking very hard for her I have to admit) it's just annoying, I don't have time for this.

Do you remember the keyrings that were released that bleeped if you whistled at them?if you overlooked the fact that they beeped everytime you so much as raised your voice above a whisper they were a good idea weren't they? (maybe I should attach them to my children)

I could pray to St Anthony, (He covers lost things AND lost souls, nothing wrong with covering ALL the bases) or I could do what I usually end up doing.


When it comes to looking for lost things I prefer to channel the old saying,

If You Love Something Set It Free
If It Comes Back, It Was And Always Will Be Yours.

If It Never Returns,
It Was Never Yours To Begin With.

It usually works, (and even if it doesn't, it usually does my other half's head in SO badly, he ends up looking for me)


  1. Good morning break read! Too funny! :)

  2. Very funny! Hmmm I spent two hours looking for some gig tickets the night before a gig, I was so sure I had put them in a 'safe place'. I eventually opened up my emails to email the venue, and found they were an E-ticket. Duh!

  3. The theme of your blog is very beautiful and the article is written very well, I will continue to focus on your article.
