Lost My Glasses in the Garden

Reflections on Lost Glasses

Oh dear, the top search leading to my blog, yesterday was Lost My Glasses in the Garden.

Lets have a think about that one, must be something to do with that Goddess of Small Lost Things post…

How about, going out with a torch at dusk and shining it around and seeing if the lenses catch the light? The trouble with glasses is that they are so transparent, so you could look for them and look right through them. If you can look for them by the colour of their frames, or look for curves or something sticking up, don’t think of them how you would see them on a desk or a table or in their container, look for the edge.  Think about what happened when you took them off, were  you reading, did you stop doing one thing and start another, did you go into a shed to get something else and take them off, did  you open a bag of soil and put them down on a brick, or a stone, or a ledge. Were you called into the house and took them in with you and put them by the door or leave them in the bathroom?

I really hope  you find your glasses… I have so many pairs and I can never find them, even when they are in their cases. I have just recently festooned their boxes with strange stickers so I can tell them apart and I never know where I have left them. I can spend ages looking for them.

Does anyone else have any thoughts on how to make glasses visible?  Those dangling strings that people attach to them, I have tried those and they don’t work for me very well, I get tangled up in them and they obscure my peripheral vision when I drive.

Your post today reminded me of back in August when I was working in the garden and my glasses slipped out of my pocket, when and exactly where, I had no idea. I looked and looked in the area I had been working until finally I saw them. They were so well camouflaged, I thought it nothing short of miraculous that I found them. Thought you would enjoy the photo I took, why, I don’t know, but somehow it seemed like proof of a miracle, I suppose!! xx A
