I am renowned in my family for losing keys, phones and anything else that is small and portable... Yesterday I misplaced my spectacles somewhere between the house and the car (I wasn't wearing them I was testing out contact lenses). This morning I still couldn't find them and nor could I find my spares (not sure I've seen them since moving house..). So in order to take my children to school in the car I had to put in the only contact lenses I could find - both right eye prescription which was not ideal.
After the school run I went to delve in the Aladdin's cave of my parents' garage where there are boxes of my possessions awaiting me to sort them out. I rummaged through lots of them and only managed to find a really old pair of spectacles dating from the 1990s:
The good news is I found a whole load of things that I have been wondering where they were since I moved:
- spare car keys (could have done with those when I got locked out of my car in the spring!)
- my smart shoes and long boots
- my premium bond certificate (which was inside an old handbag)
- an umbrella
- teach yourself Latin
- a Harry Potter wand
- my daughter's toy picnic hamper
- and lots of other bits!
Do you think I'm too old at 40 to learn to be more organised?
