Red face What's the most IMPORTANT item you have forgotten? -HOW DID YOU RESOLVE IT?

I was chatting last night about the time I forgot to pick up our Insulin when going camping in Gairloch,North West Scotland, and the nearest pharmacy to dispense some was 55 miles away!
If I remember right, the round trip through tiny winding lanes took us over THREE HOURS!!!
Neither my partner or my kids spoke to me the WHOLE WAY

It's funny now when I look back, and needless to say I haven't forgotten it since! We keep a spare glucose inj in the fridge in the caravan now as well, as the nearest A&E is 10 miles away through winding (unlit) country lanes.

What's the most important item YOU have forgotten?
This should be interesting!

The caravan keys, when we got to the van we couldn't get in! Luckily the site manager has spares for all the vans.

Maybe that's why they keep a set for us? Imagine arriving late at night though

Always keep a caravan key on your car keys. Impossible to forget them then.

Tip-Anyone on important medicines or on several medicines, keep a copy of FP10 ( the bit of your repeat prescription that lists all your medicines and their doses) in your wallet or purse. In the event that you are far from home and forget your meds this can make it easier for doctors or nurses to accurately prescribe your medicines as an emergency prescription for you.
Its also really useful to emrgency services or staff in emergency departments to gain information about your medicines, date of birth and NHS number in the event of an accident (god forbid).

Yes we've found that the repeat is great in the case of my daughter with CF it saves you having to remember everything and all the right spellings and quantities etc. when she's admitted to hospital.

Default interesting....

Well, I'm glad I've posted this question, it started off in my mind as a means of amusement, it still is, but I think it could also be a point of useful information in the event of... maybe I should change the subject heading slightly.

Perhaps we could tell our tale, and also how we remedied the situation if like mine, it was a serious oversight

Fire away then playmates

Touching wood nothing important yet, but when I was a kid my Mum locked our dog in the house and forgot to give my grandad the key, he was supposed to be fetching him in the afternoon to stay with him for the week - we were half way to Blackpool when Mum shreiked and Dad almost ran the car off the road - yes we did turn back
