- Somewhere...out there...
I had a happy / sad event involving a cheque once. My Dad died some years ago and was always concerned about us being short of money. He used to come and stay with us every Christmas for 6 years until he became too unwell. Anyway, this was about 6 or so years ago. I walked into the sitting room one day and there on my pine dresser was a pristine folded piece of paper. I was puzzled as the only place it could possibly have come from was one of the small drawers above but I hadn't used them that day and Hubby was in work. It wasn't there earlier unless I was too distracted to notice. I picked up the paper opened it wide and it was a cheque for £500 from my Dad he had written years before and probably hid it in the drawer for me. The cheque was now worthless money wise but absolutely priceless to me sentimentally. I admit tears were in my eyes as I whispered "Thanks Dad I love you lots". I could have done with that £500 so many times believe me but it didn't bother me I just took it as a sign that he loved me and was taking care of me. I have kept the cheque safe in a trinket box I use for special things. If he had hidden it in the drawer he should have known better as I am not exactly a domestic goddess and clean my drawers out regularly etc etc. LOL
