Thursday 22 February 2007: The Mystery of the Missing Tart
Stopped for elevenses this morning, and was perturbed to discover that the remaining half of the apple tart I was looking forward to was gone.
The packet was still there with the lid closed, on the worktop where last seen. But the tart was gone.
1) Mrs Bri - Unlikely, as she was at work, and is wheat-free anyway.
2) A.N. Burglar - Unlikely, the door was locked, and nothing else was disturbed.
3) Nevis 'the Tongue' - possible. Has form (once stole a lamb joint of the worktop, and a chicken drumstick from someone's hand). And has previously climbed onto the table to get to the sugar bowl.
4) 'Hungry' Olllie - possible. Matches previous MO - once ate a freshly baked plum cake off a worktop.
When the two prime suspects were confronted, they BOTH looked guilty.
Before we call in Slipper of the Yard, who is the most likely culprit?
