Answers by midnight Sunday to jannette@easynet.co.uk with puzzle as the subject.
The war of the whistle is on!  John is insisting that I lost Slip’s whistle whilst he was away.  I know I did not!  I took special care of it as I know how fussy he is about it.  Now it cannot be found.  It makes me so mad when he says I have lost it – I have not!  Then, to make matters worse, at about 9,0pm  last night I suddenly realised that my Tiffany gold bracelet was no longer on my wrist.  I did not dare say anything especially with the lost whistle still clouding the air. I could not really look for it either as he would have asked what I was doing!  So I spent all night worrying.
This morning I decided that I could not have been without it for long as it is heavy and I would have noticed.  I decided to re-track my steps from 8.0pm last night.  I had a bath – not in bathroom. Typed some emails – no sign in vicinity of computer.  It is most likely to spring open when I take clothes off – inspected all clothes in laundry basket – not a whisker of a bracelet. Then I remembered, John had told me to go through the pockets of the coat I wore to walk Slip whilst he was away….he thought the whistle might be in a pocket. Although I KNOW I DID NOT loose the whistle, I did so.  On opening the cupboard where the coat lives this morning, what did I see…….my bracelet on the floor!!
The whistle is still missing………………………
Got to get on – postman will be here very soon…back tomorrow!
