The problem is that I don't know if I've actually lost them, or if they're lurking in some odd corner of the house where I've absent-mindedly put them down.
I've checked the car.
I've rung the dentist because my last memory of them is putting them in my handbag, or maybe a pocket, before going to have a filling replaced this week. I never actually took them out because I arrived ten minutes early (a bit anal about keeping getting to places on time) and the dentist saw me almost immediately (how rare is that) and I was out almost before my appointment time. Anyway, on the offchance I rang, but they weren't there.
They could be in Sainsbury's, crunched to pieces by a passing foot and kicked under a shelving unit. I'll run up there today and check if they've been found. Or maybe I should do a bit of serious housework Just in case I only thought about putting them in my bag/pocket and they're actually down the back of the sofa (no, really, I've already looked).
The thing is, these were the reading glasses I bought the last time I thought I'd lost a pair. And then found them a week later.
I do have spare pair, slightly weaker, which are supposed to be for the computer. Thank goodness for the Kindle and its adjustable font size.
