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!

ripsis so did you really nick mine ? still can't find the bastard anywhere. I think I'll have to cancel it today so I can get a replacement. Or I could just be a miserable bastard and cancel christmas shock

I bet it's in a really stupid place. Try looking under cushions or tea towels. In the car? Might have fallen inside a drawer and then pushed back.

Posted somewhere? Back of the sofa or tv? Under a bed or pillow? Toy box?

DozyDuck Wed 05-Dec-12 10:27:35

Washing machine?? Did the tesco man take anything with him when he went? Crates or anything it could have fallen into?

Was gonna say under two year Olds pillow too. At that age, my dd used to nick important stuff and hide it in her room 'to keep it safe' hmm

on a chair tucked under the table

Am going to offer dc's a reward to find it. I much prefer to think its here somewhere. Though have now spent 4 plus hours looking!

I have cancelled bank cards. But am loath to spend hours to get replacement advantage, nectar, tesco cards or driving license just yet.

i was going to suggest getting the dc's to get involved

drawers, bins, floor, freezer, handbag, with recipts, with art stuff, with laundry, in washing machine, fridge, dishwasher, sink, sofa, bed, bedside table, food cupboard, cleaning cupboard, pockets, cookie/coffee/sugar/tea jar, bread bin, microwave, coat, car, homework (this list is blooming endless lol)

is there a reward if we get it right? wink

Freezer or with all the carrier bags that shopping was delivered with?

eightytwenty Wed 05-Dec-12 14:02:49

Certainly would be if anyone fancied coming round and helping me tear the house apart!

I've genuinely looked in all of these places. But will also check under the bed. I now have a v tidy art cupboard.

Behind a radiator?

anything yet?

eightytwenty Wed 05-Dec-12 22:07:30

Nothing. Offer of a reward didn't help either. Will call police tomorrow

it could have gone in one of mr tesco's crates it they were on or around the table when unpacking

Do you have a Bermuda Triangle in your house? We do. So far it has consumed two packs of gauze, a microfibre screen cleaner, a pot of sudocrem, and random socks belonging to DD2. Nothing as expensive or valuable as a purse, but give it time...

I reckon your DCs have put it somewhere 'helpful' but being DCs they can't remember where (or even that they did it...).

Check the bin again. It's happened to me twice!

FlojoHoHoHo Wed 05-Dec-12 23:19:48

Nevermind the purse. Your Tesco man unpacks your shopping on to the kitchen table shock u mean all this time when I've hurriedly emptied the crates on to my hallway floor I didn't need to? They actually pop them in the kitchen?

eightytwenty Wed 05-Dec-12 23:26:57

Yes they always bring them through to the kitchen. And this one was a Londoner too.

Called tesco again - nothing.

Went through bin again - item by item - nothing.

Am now thinking it has been stolen.

Love the Bermuda Triangle! We do loose stuff here, though not often my stuff as I normally have a v good visual memory for where I've put stuff.

Has it turned up?

Kalisi Wed 12-Dec-12 11:09:46

That's crazy, I was literally just about to ask for an update!
Please OP I haven't slept for days grin

Unitedwestand Wed 12-Dec-12 19:27:50

Great minds think alike Kalisi smile

Monty27 Wed 12-Dec-12 23:43:41

As a matter of curiousity OP are you in London? Was just wondering whether we 'Londoners' are all classed as potential 'feeves."

And did you find your purse?

DozyDuck Tue 18-Dec-12 06:02:25

Did you ever find it?

peaceandlovebunny Tue 18-Dec-12 06:06:32

down the side of a seat eg the car seat, or a sofa.i used to lose things down by the car seat all the time. not having a car put a stop to that.
