Just to say thanks everyone ... I have told my Mum (88 and going strong apart from not being able to see very well because of macular degeneration) about the posts and Real Crimes offer of a replacement bracelet and she says thanks too ! It has touched her too. The real issue with the lost bracelet was that I always wore it to bring us luck- particularly hospital appointments - so when I lost it I think we both thought ' thats it' despite trying to be rational ! We both knew this was silly really but both believed it despite ourselves which is why the loss of it has been terrible. Anyway this has all made it so much better as I now think the bracelet is still bringing us luck even though I do not actually have it anymore! If only I could find it !!! But the replacement will have to be imbued with same significance which I am sure it will. Thank you.
