Happening way too often around here for my liking!
I try to do without turning on my heater at least until the sun goes down.
So I'm sitting here in layers of warm clothes, but still feeling cold, so I turned on the heater.
Ten minutes later I wandered over to it to see why it wasn't warming up.
Ooops! I'd forgotten to turn on the switch where it is plugged in.
Going into the kitchen yesterday and making a cup of coffee, wiping up the puddle where the kettle drips as it pours, turning off the kitchen light, getting comfy on the couch, then realising my coffee is still on the kitchen bench.
Walking into the bathroom and wondering what the heck I was there for.
Looking all over for my pen and finding it 6 inches from where I'd been sitting.
Putting the gladwrap in the fridge and realising what I was doing as I almost put the wrapped cheese in the drawer.
Earlier today, I sent a text to my daughter saying I was sitting in the sun, drinking coffee.
oh no! I've turned into my mother!
Mum spent days (weeks/months/years) at a time sitting in the sun drinking coffee.
Without even reading a book!!
As I'd just been doing.
Now for some good news.
This morning I had lunch in the city with no-one and told her about my failed attempts to find the movie Rain.
When I turned on the computer, after having my coffee in the sun on the front porch, there was an email from her with a link to where I might buy the movie.
Where I'd already looked.
Now I know my girl is smarter and cleverer than me by about 300%, so I followed the link and bought the movie.
With free shipping!
I'm attributing all these "more than usual" senior moments to the fact that I'm currently taking a holiday from work.
Clearly my mind has decided it needs more holiday than my body does and has taken itself off somewhere.
