Please don't be a house elf or a phycho

Weird thing.

I was wandering around Chapters today, cradling a copy of Organic Housekeeping, when I got a phone call.

"Hello, Andrea?"


"This is (someone who's name escapes me) from (name of organization). I have your notebook here; it says your name on the inside cover. I guess you left it at our meeting in December."

"Um, I've never heard of your organization, and I wasn't at that meeting."

"Oh. Well, it was left here by someone. It says your name and number on it. It's aqua coloured."

"That does sound like one of my notebooks, but I really wasn't at the meeting."

"That's strange. I'll have to see who left it. It's here if you want to pick it up."


Three things could have happened.

1. A fairy house elf took my notebook and left it at this meeting to keep me on my toes.

2. One of my roomies needed a notebook, grabbed mine by accident, and left it at that meeting.

3. Some psycho is stealing from my house.

And actually, all of these options freak me out a touch.

The good news is that I bought the Organic Housekeeping book, and now know how to fend off cockroaches, wash and dry down duvets, and keep my sink germ-free without using toxic cleaners.

I had a huge "fairy house elf" infestation a while ago. Turned out that they were psycho as well, but thanks to your vinegar and baking soda tip that problem was solved.

Love the new site, looks amazing
