Have you ever lent anyone anything and not had it back. I have. A couple of years ago I lent someone ALL my Jean Greenhowe toy patterns and did not get them back. We have since lost contact with each other, so there is no chance of getting them back now. However I managed to buy all these toy patterns for only 10p each at our League of Friends stall at the hospital. I was very pleased and thought I had definitely got a bargain. But if I had got them back to begin with I wouldn't have had to buy them again would I?
