Him is Nicholas’ giraffe. One of those fabric comforter things children have these days. Nicholas’ giraffe is three years old just like him. He’s tatty and practically falling to bits and Nicholas loves him. Sadly he lost giraffe a couple of weeks ago on a trip to Ikea with his parents. They searched high and low for him and asked at customer services if giraffe had been handed in but alas, the answer was no. They had to go home without him. Victoria rang the store a couple of times over the following weeks but still there was no sign of giraffe.
Nicholas would ask, out of the blue, “Is him happy?” or ring Giraffe on his toy mobile and talk to him and ask him if he was okay. This little boy was missing his giraffe.
Now, Ikea does have a lost property box and today we went back to the store to have a look in it. Low and behold, there he was. Giraffe was waiting to be claimed and home he came with us! So yes, today, him is very happy!
