    I do that all the time smurf. Also always leaving bits of kit at peoples houses and having to backtrack to collect. Must be an age thing.

    yep locked my keys in my windowcleaning pocket for the third time, today as i slammed the boot shut.....but.....i have the spare key on my phone around my neck.....saved....not to mention leaving my heavy duty cycle lock on the roof as i drove off and with all the luck in the world finding it still there on the next job....its solid steel and flying off into someones windscreen would not have been a good idea....i dont let it out of my hand now till its in the boot....and what about the best one.....turning up at work and reaching on the roof for ladders which are nicely locked away at home....grrrrrr....and the bloody wife waved me off.....and of course the greatest one....l clean a job behind locked gates and nicely waited to get out and got back to my car and drove home...it was friday......on sunday the wife back from walking the dogs said where are your ladders.?......
    and it had been very windy and guess who had left them up leaning against the house wall,,,,oops thankyou tony for taking them down and storing them safely ....i had a nightmare where they had blown down and landed on his porche....very sheepishly went back on monday morning.....ooops....more oh yes plenty more....hope i have learnt my lesson....

    I turned the house upside down and in the end my wife said have you checked the bin. Low and behold I found the van keys in the bin in a chip shop bag. We had a chipy supper last night and I must have inadvertently with the chip paper scooped them up from the side whilst tidying up.

    The bad news I was late for a quote so had to phone the customer after I found the keys to say why I was late.

    Good news the lady understood the delay and even said “you sound just like me as I’m always doing stupid thing and the best one was I feel in the garden pond last year” :D

    Have you got a website? I think I've seen your pic via another forum.
