So... we are now on our spare spare glasses after losing the previous 2, waiting for the dentist after losing dentures and now lost the TV remote....The only thing that did eventually turned up...

Can't help with the glasses & dentures, but, we were so cheesed off with mums remote going missing, we bought a "flipper" remote (Quite distinctive) & fixed a retractable key ring to it (extends about 2ft) then screwed it to the radiator cover (near her chair) & superglued the screw.

3 months on, it's still here Yay!!! :)

I know just what you mean. You need the skills of a detective to find missing gear here. G L

Edit: My OH has just put her ointment for her sore mouth in a safe place. I wondered what I was going to do with myself now she has gone to bed.:D

I swear that there is a black hole in the middle of my house. Things disappear into it never to be seen again

We're still missing 3 nighties and the dog chewed up mums top set of dentures. Dentist turned up wednesday not getting the message that mum is in hospital. I keep finding her hairbrush on the hospital window when I visit her.
