Looking for a Lost Item

Bella notices that her jumper is missing. She asks her mum if she has seen it anywhere…

Bella: Mum, did you see my blue jumper anywhere?

Mum: No, sorry, I didn’t. Did you check in your wardrobe?

Bella: Yes, I did, but it’s not there…

Mum: Did you ask your sister? Maybe she took it and forgot to put it back?

Bella: She said that she didn’t take it. I really don’t know where else to look for it…

Mum: Maybe it’s under your bed?

Bella: It’s not under my bed! I’ve checked everywhere, and I still can’t find it!

Mum: Oh! I’ve just remembered - I put it in the washing machine this morning!

Bella: Why didn’t you tell me that before?

Mum: I’m so sorry - I totally forgot! It was on top of the laundry basket so I put it in the washing machine. I’ll dry it and iron it for you this afternoon.
