Not anything major but I've mislaid a Pokemon plush. £3 from China but it's still bothering me.

A couple of years ago I mislaid I ghost busters key ring I got for DH, totally forgot about it until it turned up this year.

I just found a little craft set I bought for Christmas for DD when she was about 8..... she's 13 this week! New I should have been more thorough when cleaning out the understairs cupboard grin

I did show her but for some reason she doesn't want it now...

Oops knew !!!

A monkey purse. I have the fish shaped one for DS1 but the monkey one for DS2 has vanished, no idea.

I had lost a tiny silver mustard spoon bought for dp. Cue a panicked search and discovery that niece's wrapped present was rattling in ways it shouldn't have been rattling. One unwrapped gift later = lost mustard spoon found. Gawd knows how it got in there.

Bought a lovely candle holder today for a friend, nice candles to go in it, all beautifully wrapped in the shop. Dropped it when I got home and it smashed sad

Aw no that's gutting breaking it.

I'm intrigued by a mustard spoon. I don't have one. Do I need one?

Probably not. It is very, very tiny and very, very cute but I don't think anybody actually needs one.

Stormtrooper toothbrush.
Bought it at Primark in Leeds on the way back from my team lunch yesterday. Lost it by the time I got back to the car. Big silly roll of wrapping paper must have wobbled it out of the bag.

RJnomore1 Sat 17-Dec-16 23:32:06

We don't really eat mustard.

I may still need one.

Oh that's a bummer bike, I know the eevee is in my house because it came in the post at least.

A box of Co-op praline seashells. Oddly the box is still there, with just a few crumbs in the bottom.
I seem to remember this happened last year as well fblush

Traviata - spooky.

An advent calendar. A small picture one, bought it weeks ago and can't find it anywhere. Hoping it will turn up by 1st Dec next year now.

RJnomore1 Sat 17-Dec-16 23:43:15

Trav, that's happened to a few things round here too. It's odd isn't it .

MouseLove Sat 17-Dec-16 23:44:19

Ok.... this is a weird one.

A 47" Led Hd tv.

I smashed the screen, we put it in the back bedroom, DH moved it and couldn't remember where to for months. Then we remembered he put it in the shed, looked in the shed.... nothing. Still not found it. blush

I've bought two pairs of elf slippers complete with bells and can't find the buggers anywhere

Bought luxury M&S Xmas cards in the January sales years ago, still haven't found them & didn't even turn up when we moved house. First & last time I ever tried to be organised

MsJamieFraser Sun 18-Dec-16 04:14:58

A 3ds game, a nothface hoodie and Nike trousers...

Itsmummydear Sun 18-Dec-16 04:46:55

Oh my I'm still devastated by this!! My mum bought me a beautiful diamond necklace as a keepsake gift for my 30th from Tiffanys - she saved up it was so special to me..

I decided to treat myself to the matching bracelet - and then LOST it in my office!!

£780 sad

I have a pair of ornaments quite big 10" a boy and girl holding presents that I stand next to tree (Scandinavian look) I open curtains this morning and only the girl is there, the little boy has disappeared, vanished into thin air! I live alone WTF Where is he?

PetalMettle Sun 18-Dec-16 05:21:31

Tissue paper to wrap ds'S stuff in for the plane. Was going to snaffle it to wrap dps presents in as I saw them yesterday. Ended up buying more for them and wesapping on the train

A box of 10 pokeballs from china bought back in September. No way to replace them in time now.

doctorboo Sun 18-Dec-16 05:55:24

OP you've just reminded me that I need to find the plushies I got months ago, stashed away and now can't find - and had forgotten about.

dontevenblink Sun 18-Dec-16 07:08:44

A box of Lindt chocs for DH. I have looked in every cupboard and cannot find them! I think he would have told me if he'd found them...
