WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO I found them! they were in their little plastic bag which had ended up with the others I use when I take the dog for a walk! my mum (that is the correct way to spell it :-P) did say that only when I looked again at a place I thought I had looked would I find them and she is right. just a few bumps and scraps but appart from that no damage! well tonight I will celebrate and put them is a safe place.
P.S sorry no pictures of me as I have just got them back
