Seems we have all the wrong kind of friends and family.
When Nomad came I had to go and buy a new pillow.
We used to have nine pillows and nine pillow cases.
Then there were eight. I discovered this some time last fall. I was a little puzzled, but thought the kids might have used one for some game and they would turn up somewhere or other, I mean really! A big fat pillow for a bed and it's case, they just don't get lost that easily.
As I made up beds for Nomad and family, I discovered there were only seven.
Seven pillows and seven pillow cases.
I bought a new pillow for the living room. Things in my life must do double duty, or be used full time. I didn't get another pillow case. For what it is worth, a t-shirt slips over quite neatly and works darned well.
If you discover you have got one of our pillows... I offer no amnesty, instead view it as a gift and treat it well. Hope it likes it's new home. I will be counting the pillows when guests leave in future though.... ;-)))
The silver still seems to be here anyway.
