The other day I replaced all our cutlery. I decided to buy a really nice set for my husband and I. We now have 8 forks, 8 knives, 8 dessert spoons, 8 soup spoons, 8 butter knives, 8 dessert forks and 8 teaspoons. And I expect to keep all of these with none wandering off to who knows where.
Why did I replace our cutlery?
Do you have teenagers?
You may know the answer if you do.
We (and I recently discovered other families also have this problem) have lost bits and pieces of our cutlery. Teenagers have a habit of using a spoon and for some strange reason it never makes it back to the kitchen. It is never seen again. I am assuming it goes to the same home that lost socks go to.
But now that my children have left home, the problems should stop - therefore the new cutlery. I don't mind spending a little more knowing that each piece will be returned to their home at night without any problems. None will be hidden under beds, found years later looking rather sad.
If you don't have teenagers, this is something to look forward to!!
