Well my dears it is so nice to see you all again. I realise that you only received my last post a short while ago. That was delayed because of a somewhat complicated series of events, which I’m not going to worry about now.
You may remember I mentioned that Mrs. M was due to be returning home after spending a holiday on a Scottish island. There was a short delay with that too. Mrs. M created her own major problem by losing her passport. Now I know what you’re going to say – I said exactly the same thing. Why on earth would she take her passport to Scotland? Apparently there is a very sensible answer! She takes her passport with her so she can’t lose it!! I ask you my dears, isn’t that ridiculous? And then, of course she lost it. Mrs. M swears blind that it was in her handbag when they went out for lunch to a rather posh restaurant.
Unfortunately somewhere between the smoked salmon starter and the macarons for dessert she mislaid the bag.
Mrs. M and Renee went to the “powder room” – they remember taking their bags. Unfortunately it becomes a little hazy after that – no doubt, something to do with the amount of alcohol which was consumed.
However, the bag was still in the restaurant when Renee rang them the following morning. Both the ladies trotted down to collect it – unfortunately although everything else remained intact, (including her wallet with a fair amount of cash in it), the passport wasn’t there. My own opinion is that it wasn’t in the bag when they went out. Anyway Mrs. M made a huge fuss and turned the little croft house upside down. Eventually, after about five days she agreed that she would need to order a new one!
Mrs. M arrived back here last evening and although we’ve spoken on the phone I haven’t seen her as yet. She will be coming round for coffee tomorrow morning. I am looking forward to that, although if she expects to relieve me of some yarn, she will be unlucky! I haven’t replenished my stash yet and although I have sufficient for a couple of my own wips I haven’t any spare yarn at all. I am planning on placing an order with an online supplier in the next couple of days.
There is a huge amount of information I must tell you about, but at the moment, I am struggling to keep on top of everything. I’m sure that if I’m able to have a couple of quiet days I’ll start to function a little better. I’m still a little upset about my flat being ransacked for no discernible reason. The police officer has been to visit me on a couple of occasions, and has just rung to ask if he may call round again later today. Apparently there have been some developments which he’d like to discuss with me. I don’t know which of the crimes we will be talking about, but obviously I will advise you as soon as I can.
I had a phone call earlier today from Giselle asking if she could pop round with a few cakes and tarts. Isn’t that kind of her? I’m looking forward to having a chat with G – she’s such a happy person. Oh yes, my dears I better update you regarding Teddy – of course, not forgetting Harry! Teddy had to attend a conference in Brighton so has been away for the past few days. I’ve had a few texts from her and she says that she has sent me a postcard. I do love cards so I’m looking forward to receiving it shortly.
I’m afraid to say that Philip is still missing. No-one has heard anything about him for some days. This is obviously a great worry to us. I hope that the visiting police officer may be able to give me some news. As some time has elapsed since he was abducted, I now fear the worst. I do hope that I may be wrong about it – it’s just a gut feeling.
It’s time for me to decide what to eat this evening, so I better make a move. I can just hearing Georgie whistling as she’s walking down the corridor so I think I’ll go and ask if she would like to come in for a nice cup of tea. Right my dears, I hope that brings you up to date. I’ll be back again soon – As Always
With Love – Jan xx
