I've enjoyed a few days off work. I spent some time in Somerset and then wizzed over to the Isle of Wight to see Mum and Dad. I came back home with a fabulous fruit cake my Dad made, which is out of this world!
Now here's a question… where do teaspoons go?!! We are down to our last two at home now, one of which has an extra long handle so isn't even from the original set of six! Is there a secret void in the sink which they disappear into? It's a bit of a puzzle. I'm pretty certain they haven't left the house as we have a plastic set for picnics and pack lunches.
They're up there with missing socks (which I've blogged about before!)- some things just have a habit of disappearing! Well, the hunt must go on! In my experience, lost items often turn up in the most random of places. My car keys once ended up in the cutlery drawer!
I'm looking forward to a really special show this Monday afternoon, 16th April at 1pm – Gold Fever. It's a three hour extravaganza with a stunning line up of gold jewellery. I hope you can join me. Have a picnic to hand, so nothing will tear you away from the screen and maybe a flask of tea for a little later on…. and hopefully, you have a spoon to stir your tea with! Perhaps we should feature a gold spoon in the show!
As you know, I always round off my blog with a weekly fact. There are so many amazing facts about gold, but this is one of my favourites.
This week's fact… an ounce of gold can be stretched into a single wire of 50 miles in length!
