To ask who has moved or taken my purse?

Ok. So it could be me. Or it could be kids. Or it could be tescos man.

I last had it on the kitchen table late afternoon when I took out work receipts.

Cleared work stuff from table before I picked up kids from child minder a bit later. Def didn't take it with me.

Came home. Fed kids. Cleared table. Put them to bed. Did art homework on table with ds1. Cleared table.

Tesco shop arrived. Was sometimes out of the room while delivery driver was unloading things on kitchen table.

Ds1 arrives to announce he'd finished his book and to demand his bribe. Which ended up in frantic search for purse. Including going through two black bins and calling tesco just to check (no news yet).

So where else could I have put it? Or have the kids hidden in? Or has the tesco man taken it (by accident or not).

All suggestions welcome!

It's in the fridge.

I once found my missing bank card in the mop bucket when I tipped it into the toilet, I must have knocked it off the table into there. I say check the mop bucket.

Ok - so where's my debit card. I used it last week when I went to see Skyfall. Its not been nicked, as I have spoken to my bank. Its not in either of the coats or bags I've used.
Its not in the fridge smile

Mop bucket - must admit I hadn't thought of that.

On the shredder.

With your work stuff?

In a cupboard.

In homework?

eightytwenty Tue 04-Dec-12 22:40:28

Right. Will check cupboards and fridge again. No mop bucket out.

Did call bank and not used

Am sure it is here somewhere but will be a pain in the but if I can't find it for a few days.

Wherever the work receipts are...what did you do with them?

KittyFane1 Tue 04-Dec-12 22:44:08

Agree with other posters. Try fridge or cupboards. I bet it's been put away with the shopping!

eightytwenty Tue 04-Dec-12 23:07:49

Not in fridge, cupboards, school bags, coat, with work stuff, printer, receipts, washing, ironing. Will grill kids in the morning. And hope its not dd1 (2) or worse tesco man.

Yabu to blame the tesco delivery man.

Have you tried the car, the freezer, a different bag

Monty27 Tue 04-Dec-12 23:17:20

Car, bin, coat, hallway

apostrophethesnowman Tue 04-Dec-12 23:21:44

Freezer? Bread bin? Cupboard under the sink?

eightytwenty Tue 04-Dec-12 23:22:03

Yup yup and yup. Though not car as not been out. Did put a bag of books in it earlier though so will check that now.

Tesco guy was v nice. Am sure it wasn't him.

McChristmasPants2012 Tue 04-Dec-12 23:24:18

It may be a possibility I could swear blind that I have not taken anything with me but i must have cause the item is in the car or up my mothers lol

My missing purse was in a wastepaper basket I'd left on the stairs to take back up.

Found it five minutes after I'd cancelled all the cards angry

Monty27 Tue 04-Dec-12 23:29:51

I left mine on top of the wheelie bin outside the front door the other day, for a few hours (Sarf London) blush

With art equipment?

eightytwenty Tue 04-Dec-12 23:46:53

Art cupboard checked.

Mystery deepens. I bought and received 3 pairs of tight today. But in the bag that I used to carry them upstairs, there were only two pairs.

Time to check bin again. I opened the pack at 1315. I left for cm at 1715. This was the last time I saw both items.

Have you checked the kids pockets and schoolbags in case they accidently picked it up?

On the floor in a corner somewhere, under kids stuff. Or with the food you put away in the pantry?
I panic if I can't find mine I hang it on the back of the coat closet door. I left it in the car one night and the car was unlocked. blush I was in a panic ready to cancel everything.

Did you put any bins bags out today? DS always puts things in the bin when I do to 'help' and it's always important stuff!

Or drawers?

ripsishere Wed 05-Dec-12 06:59:17

OK, I'll own up, it was me.
Actually, the last time I was with someone and they'd lost their CCs, I did say something similar.
She had a humor failure and threatened to phone the police.
Hope they've turned up now.

Been through bin bags again this morning.

Checked present shelf - found tights!

Kids deny seeing it.

Still no sign. And yet I am sure it is here somewhere.
