Now I may come across as someone who lost her marbles in early childhood and has frantically searched high and low to regain them, but really I am quite sane (my blog banner will attest to this!) – or at least that’s what I thought until today, now I’m not so sure.
There I was happily packing the orders as every other day. I had a stack of compliment slips by the side, next to a Royal Mail sizing guide – the guide has slots and a sizing guide so that you can determine how the packet is going to be classed. I went to pick up the guide and in the process managed to knock the pile of about 40 compliment slips behind the counter. Cursing in a lady-like manner I carried on with the order I was packing, intending to pick up the slips after I had finished. Two minutes later I was ready and walked around the counter expecting to see a load of compliment slips all over the floor! Nothing, zilch, nada, nought, squat, zip, a big fat zero! NOT A SINGLE SLIP!!! Where did they go??? They really truly madly deeply dippy do HAVE disappeared! I’m not kidding you! Cross my heart and hope to die! This really has spooked me!WHERE THE HECKETY HECK DID THEY GO???
To be honest I can’t recall hearing them fall onto the floor, you know that faint rustling of paper as it lands, it was quite silent and I did think that was a little bizarre at the time. One minute they were there, the next they had gone. The only thing I can think of is that they somehow slipped into another dimension, perhaps another craft retailer there required some compliment slips and decided that mine would do very nicely thank you! Do let me know if you have another explanation!
