I acquired an Alan Cross frame 18 months ago.

A year ago I bought new decals for it.

For a year, I have been "getting round" to fitting them. And as late as last week, I knew exactly where said decals were.

This evening I finally get round to the final stages of removing the old decals....

Can I find the decals I was going to fit?

Can I f..k?

So you're saying I have a luxury problem.

You're probably right...

Things were so much easier to find when we lived in a 2-room flat with a 4m2 cellar for bike stuff.

Now I have to look through 200m2 of ground floor and cellar...

And loads of drawers and cupboards....

The rule here is to look for something entirely different, then you'll come across them.

Try it. I'll even bet a green SRP crank bolt you'll find them.

I have a habit of putting things in a safe place so I can find them when I need them, just wish I could remember where it is.

Another habit is always putting things back in the same place after using them so I know where to find them next time, the mrs cannot get her head around this idea at all - things get put back in totaly random places :x

try looking for something else that will do the job, then once you've spent an hour trying to find that, the thing you were looking for in the first place will be right next to it!
