How can something just disappear like that?

I’m looking for a cord and just can’t find it! It’s for my trimmer that needs top be charged before I can use it and I only use that cord here in the kitchen. I’ve looked everywhere and I never toss away old cords, instead I save them in an old plastic bag. I don’t know how many people I’ve helped by looking in that plastic bag 🙂


Bumblebee beetle.
All those black dots are some of the forest flies that surrounded Sune on our walk.

So instead of writing anything more here today I’ll continue to look for that cord because I’m really tired of looking like an old hobo 🙂 🙂 🙂 I really need to get rid of both the hair and the beard so I do hope I’ll find it!


Not possible to see the creek any longer. Almost no water in it and loads of bushes and small trees cover big parts of it now.

Have a great day!

    1. Hi librall!

      happens to me all the time too and so far I haven’t found it 🙂 🙂 I can’t for my life understand where I’ve put it 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!



  1. Hi Christer,
    I hate when I can’t find something that I know I always keep in the same place. At the moment, I can’t find my roll of gaffer tape which I know I put somewhere convenient. The other day I was looking for the bottle of chain oil which I knew I had put somewhere convenient. It wasn’t with the chain saws in the cellar. It wasn’t on the front porch where it had been all winter. I finally found it on the shelf by the cellar stairs. Imagine. 🙂 At least it wasn’t another case of being unable to find my phone while I was actually talking to someone on it. 😀
    Anyway, I hope you find the right cord quickly. I hope none of the dogs is responsible for misplacing it.

    Enjoy the evening.


    1. Hi Caryn!

      I still haven’t found it and I never have it anywhere else than in the kitchen 🙂 🙂 I’m pretty sure that I can’t blame any of the dogs though 🙂 It’s the same when I need my gaffer tape, why does the tape always vanish ?? 🙂 🙂 I do however know where my chain oil is, in the wood shed and it is one of the few things that actually always is where it should be 🙂 🙂 I have still never looked for the phone while talking in it though 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!



      1. I’m convinced that rolls of tape have secret legs and they scurry away as soon as they perceive that I am looking for them.
        My chain oil is now in the cellar in the box that also has the chain saw so unless the two of them decide to run away together, I will be able to find both.


      2. I’m convinced that the little people (the Wights) living beneath our cottages use a huge amount of tape 🙂 🙂 🙂 Perhaps they use it as sticky fly paper, if so I’m willing to forgive them 🙂 🙂 🙂


  2. Christer,
    I am a creature of habit. Most things have a specific place, and I am really surprised if something I need isn’t where it should be. Half the time I don’t even remember moving it so I just have to hope I run into it when looking for something else.

    Those flies are just awful. There are so many, poor Suni.

    I hope your weather stays so wonderfully perfect!!

    Have a great day!!


    1. Hi Kat!

      I do normally place things at the same place every time because I know I won’t find them if I don’t 🙂 I just don’t understand where the cord is so I must have had it in my hand when leaving the kitchen.

      At least the forest flies don’t bite, just annoy. Today lots of horse flies decided that we were their lunch.

      Have a great day!



  3. Kan det vara så att du la sladden på nåt “riktigt bra ställe”, så att du skulle veta precis var du la den!? Min gubbe brukar nämligen göra så, sen kan han leta i timmar eller t.o.m. veckor var det där “bra stället” var!! *fniss* 🙂
    Det går ju an om det bara är en sladd eller liknande småsaker, men när min gubbe för c:a 25 år sen la kassan med runt 20.000:- från vår firma någonstans i huset . Vi hade inte hunnit varit på banken med den.
    Vi letade som tokiga båda två i 10 dagar tills vi hittade den, han kom dock aldrig på var han hade gjort av den. Den låg i en stor kastrull som stod längst in i ett köksskåp. Kastrullen användas endast till att koka skinka i, så den kunde ha blivit kvar där ett halvår! 😦
    Jag fick honom då att lova att ALLTID berätta för mig var han la eller gömde grejor – och det fungerar för det mesta. Men när det är “småsaker” så kan han lägga ifrån sig dom på dom mest omöjliga ställen ändå! 😦 😦
    Så lycka till med letandet….


    1. Hejsan Susie!

      Tror inte att det var så denna gången. Den lämnar aldrig köket så den borde ligga här. Jag måste ha haft den i handen och fått med den när jag av någon anledning lämnat köket och i tankarna bara lagt den någonstans tror jag.

      Jag hade blivit lite stressad om jag inte hittat 20 000kr 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Skall forsätta letandet idag 🙂

      ha det gott!
