Just one more little challenge! LOST KEYS Who would think that losing keys would turn out to be such a challenge. In the 'old' days one would have just thought, oh b****er and just got some replacements. These days it's a major operation! Story so far - 11pm - just about to turn in for the night and husband's keys discovered missing. Not seen between 3pm - 11pm. 1am - after 2 hours searching every nook & cranny, going over every possible scenario from him leaving the car to entering the house, apporx 25 feet, we realise they are nowhere to be found in the house. After discovering the car unlocked, this of course poses another problem as he always locks the car, 'who has opened it?' 1.15am - scary thought that he may have dropped them outside on the road and someone may have picked them up. Now, if this is the case, has the person picked them up and a)honest person - taken them to the police station (no point in phoning as the local police station is not going to pick up at this time in the morning!) or b) dishonest person - checked to see if the keys belong to the car next to it and by default the house next to the car, and is waiting for an opportune moment to enter the house and decide that all personal items now belong to him/her? 1.30am - After going through several scenarios, decision taken to use spare car keys to fetch the car onto the driveway and block it in behind my car. Jam the door locks in the house with keys, so no one can gain access, if indeed we are able to fall asleep with the thought that someone may try and gain entry to car/house in the middle of the night! 1.45am - decision taken to try and get some sleep! 4.30am - husband gets up for work and wakes me up so we can swap the cars back round. 5am - I'm checking out the local locksmiths in the area, and thinking how my manager is going to react to me not turning into work while I'm waiting for the house locks to be changed, and what to say to the person I'm having to cancel my weekly meeting with this morning as I already cancelled last weeks, due to sickness! Challenges for today - As it would be our fault if anyone 'broke' into the house, and/or stole the car which would make the insurances invalid, find a locksmith who will respond quickly and not fleece me for needing their assistance, phone up the garage to see if it's possible to have car locks changed without it being a 3 day operation and £100s of pounds! Then try and get into work without using too much flexi. Oh, and after only 2 1/2 hours 'sleep', I've then got to get through today and meet work colleagues for a meal tonight for a collegues leaving do. Considering this will be the first time I will have gone out since 'god knows when', I will be there even if I am sleepwalking!
