Getting further past it
« on: March 07, 2018, 10:25:46 AM »
To make a change from my usual half awake breakfast preparations, instead of emptying a Kenco Latte sachet into my cereal bowl, as has happened a few times, I attempted to put 2 weetybix into my coffee mug.  Times like this I'm surprised I haven't tried putting my feet into the sleeves of me shirt and pulling me trousers over me head.

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

I made Val a really nice cup of hot water once and I wondered why she went out and made another
I even went down the shed after four weeks and forgot how to set the points for one of the roads into the fiddle yard and ramed the back of the train allready there  .
This getting old is pain in  the proverbial but the alternative is far worse.

I have to go into work later today, on my day off, to return the works mobile phone that I brought home with me yesterday morning. And as for walking into the next room and wondering what I am doing there ...........

Put the frying pan on the ring last night, full blast, with a small amount of oil. Went through to take my tablets, while it warmed up, then forgot it was on.

At least it tested the smoke alarm............

I then opened the freezer, to get a pack of onions out and pulled the drawer right out and dropped it on the floor.

I forgot to take my lunch time tablets, so it just goes to prove that you have to keep taking the tablets........

If you look in the freezer you might find a text from your swmbo reminding you where you put the remote ?

What's a text? Is that a paragraph in a letter?
