what do socks, scissors and sticky tape have in common?

I know it is that time of the year and there is a tradition that drives me mad. It is not wrapping the presents to go under the tree, I love doing that but the problem with this and any time you need to give a gift is looking for the bloody sticky tape and scissors. No matter how many pairs of scissors you buy or rolls of sticky tape you can put them in drawers, glove boxes and in the kitchen, when you want them you can NEVER find them.

It’s quite mysterious in that there may only be two people in the house but I can never find scissors. It’s like the socks and the washing machine, despite matching them up before they go in, there is not equal numbers coming off the line or going back into drawers, how does one do that?  There is no evidence that the washing machine absorbs them but somehow they go missing.

I looked up the dream dictionary about these items, because I am sure at some stage people have dreamt of these items, if not dreamt of finding them to reduce the cost of repurchase.

To dream that you are wearing socks signifies warmth & comfort. To see socks in your dream indicate that you tend to yield to others wishes. You are flexible and understanding in your thinking. To see a single sock in your dream is a pun on hitting someone or being hit, or perhaps the dream means that you have been hit with some surprising information or news.

” To dream that you are using scissors denotes decisiveness and control in your waking life. You need to get rid of something in your life. It also represents your ability to cut things or people out of your life. Also perhaps you are being snippy about some situations. To see a pair of scissors in your dreams indicates that your focus is being divided into too many directions. To see or use tape in your dream represents your limitations. On the other hand, the dream may be telling you that you need to show more restraint in some aspect of your life.”

My upshot of this trival post and drawing the long bow to marry them altogether is that this is a time of the year where you want to surprise someone or be surprised as well as being forced to limit time or money on the things you want.

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas day, we spent ours fixing water troughs so that 400 cattle would not be out of water instead of travelling to have lunch, but we made dinner with the family and then spent a wonderful lunch with my great friend KateSwaffer who’s blog is worth reading daily as a great advocate for dementia and her family. Cherish the times you have together and ensure when you have them it’s full of laughter and good cheer. I shall today be putting the scissors and tape away today in the office drawer for next year.
