Is it unreasonable to expect that somewhere amongst 17 different types of plug adaptors, 12 blue-tooth adaptors, 43 computer cables, 2 routers, 6 old mobiles phones, 3 old PDAs, 2 old cameras, 2 laser pointers, a GPS, 4 different types of recording devices, 3 runners watches, an iPod, 4 power strips and several packs of blank CDs and DVDs I should be able to find one bloody SD card reader to get the photos off my daughter's camera!!!!!
have also found several sets of airline headphones, 2 camera battery chargers, a portable hard drive, several modem cables (modem cables? WTF we haven't had a modem for YEARS!) and BT broadband hub. Still no card reader though.
i actually did a 'she blinded me with science' on all our misc cables the other day (remember? "all my tubes and wires in careful knots!") and tied them all up individually with elastic bands. ott i know but at least i can find my sodding phone charger now
asicsgirl that's probably exactly the sort of thing i would have done once upon a time but all these things now live in our study and I have long since given up hope of maintaining any kind of control or order in the study. Although I spend many hours a day working in here it is, in reality, DH's domain. So now I'm resigned to having to ask him for stuff and he's away.
