So there I was getting on with some more Christmas cards using Penny Black 12 Days of Christmas when I realise '3 French Hens' is missing. I had been playing around with it earlier on in the week, cleaned it, laid it on some kitchen towel to dry and that's the last time I saw it. It must be in the bin (not guilty). So I don the rubber gloves and go bin raking (bearing in mind it is pitch black outside and a lady of my calibre should not be midgie raking). Now Ian's most favourite kitchen accessory is the kitchen towel rail so - you guessed it - this one bin bag has five million kitchen towels in it as well as a smashed 'Le Creuset' gratin dish which he hasn't yet confessed to.

Anyway, I found it - turmeric stained and a bit worse for wear but I'm sure it will be OK - I can't say the same for Ian however. So now that I have finished rambling this is my card for the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge #17 Christmas is Coming.
