So far, DD1 - nothing, DD2 one of her gloves from her 'best' hat/scarf/gloves set (which she was told not to wear to school as she would lose something, she assured me she wouldnt, but sure enough she did!) DS1, school library book, water bottle and gloves. So I dont think we are doing too badly up to now for this year compared to previous years, how about you?

DD (y1) PE shorts, 1 cardigan, 3 gloves and a reading diary.

DS (y3) a raincoat, 1 glove and 1 school shoe. I wasn't amused by a school shoe going missing from the changing rooms!

One waterbottle in a waterbottle bad I made last year - I'm pretty sure it's in the house somewhere though. Other than that, nothing, not even temporarily.

TA did find them again though.

Water bottle not yet found.

School jumper, turned up a couple of days later.

Between 3, they have lost 2 water bottles, 2 sweatshirts, 1 pair plimsoles, 1 school PE top, several pairs of socks (?) and a pair of trousers!!(long story!)
I dread to think over the years how many full uniforms I have subbed some other families!biscuit

If the stuff is labelled, does it not make its way back?

Or do people keep them and remove the labels?

NEWSFLASH!!!! Missing gloves and water bottle have today reappeared!!! So now only missing DD2's glove and DS1's library book. Am expecting to lose track of more stuff once we start on the hat/scarf/gloves weather, but so far, so good in comparison to previous years track record.

All labelled - except the socks!
The trousers, I actually know which family has them! It was one of those where they were changing back from PE. Child A picked up B's trousers. Child B couldn't find theirs so picked up child C'c etc. The teacher then got inundated with returned trousers. I returned another child's, expecting to at some point get my DS's. The teacher knows who has ours, and has spoken to, and written to the parents. So far there has been no response. This was a couple of weeks into the new term, so I take it that they have no intention of returning them!
Yes, people do cut out labels and keep them. I recognised 1 of my DS's sweatshirts once (he had a mucky glue stain on the underarm that I could not get off). I asked the teacher to check. No label, but a scissor cut where the label would have been.

- 1 rugby sock
- 1 swimming jammer
- 3 key fobs
- 1 bicycle lock key (thank goodness I had extras)
- 1 gum shield
- 1 sock x 3
- countless pencils
- 1 ruler

Many more things have been lost temporarily. Pretty much is scatterbrained and forgets about small items. Highly irritating!
