When I was a girl (all those years ago), my family used to play a regular Sunday morning game. We kids would get to run all around the house looking for hidden treasure.
The game was called "Let's find Mum's glasses before we can leave for Church". It never occured to us that if we couldn't find them we wouldn't have to leave for church - although I have a sneaking presentiment that we would have had to go glasses-less anyway (my parents were like that).
It was a regular feature of our week because Mum didn't need her glasses all the time, so they would be whereever she last needed them.
This morning I had a little walk down memory lane. I played "Let's find My glasses before I can sit down at the computer".
It occurs to me that I would now be approximately the same age as my Mum was when we used to play the game. Unfortunately, I didn't procreate early enough to have any help in my search. I always knew that kids would come in handy for something.
The chance that my Mum will read this?
... Approximately None! (she's away for a week - he, he, he)
