Hi Sheila and Piscanhealer,
My oven is built in to the kitchen so it can't be pulled out. But I have certainly looked behind the fridge and washing machine, and I have taken the kickboards out from under my cupboards - nothing at all
I am heartbroken only because it is my engagement ring and a symbol of something so important to me - it is a one off that I saw in a shop window ages ago and that my fiance went back to get for me. I'm not a materialistic person it's just the most special thing I have ever been given. It evokes happy memories and wonderful feelings and without it I am miserable. I had the silly idea of giving it to my grandchildren one day and I feel like I have let my fiance down somehow.
