Yep, I couldn't find the chicks when it was time to pack them with an egg each and wrap them up. DH helped me look but still the chicks stayed missing. I was sure I remembered putting them in one of the cubes in the IKEA shelves we have in the little bedroom that we have set up as a computer room.
I ended up buying 4 more chicks and this time I bought them with a Creme egg already in each. And it was this second lot of chicks that I gave to my neighbour on Easter Day. This morning I found those first lot of chickens...they were under some fabric on a table in another spare bedroom which I call my sewing room :-/
But I now understand why things like this happen to me...it was all explained in a leaflet which was included in the envelope which also contained the results of my recent sleep study...I added a little 'call out' to the photo I took of this leaflet...it explains it all!
