We had lots of teaspoons, a mixture of a new six piece set and spoons from other sets of bygone years. Over the last six months our eclectic collection of teaspoons has dwindled to the point that we now have two left.
As they slowly departed I have been wondering where on earth they could be? Would I find a hoard of teaspoons in amongst the toys in the playroom when we move. Had they been used for digging in the garden? We lost an ice cream scoop that way. Had the dog got bored of stealing cheese and frozen mince from the worktop and moved on to shiny things and if so where were they now? No … don’t think about that one too much.
Then the mystery was solved.
On Sunday the 3 year old ate a yoghurt then proceeded in a daydreamy fashion to put his yoghurt pot AND spoon in the bin.
Does he think we run the place like McDonald’s? If he does I shall be going to Tesco and buying 250 value plastic spoons.
