losing it

Kettles on the lough during Storm Ali
lots of firewood as a result 
This morning started bright and early and with a spring in my step I decided to clear my desk before I even put coffee on - first find a certificate for one of last year's students who's mum was coming around to collect it at 11.

Not a problem

No.   Definitely not a problem.   I know exactly where it is.

I thought..


3 HOURS LATER .... a very distracted, frazzled and most annoyed other version of me finally gave up looking and thought I'd better get on with some other work and make a few phone calls.  

The (brown) photo envelope was on the sitting room table for weeks and only last week I tidied up and definitely put it in the office.

On the plus side, months of filing is done.  However ...

Finally, 5 hours later, I made a long overdue phone call and while telling my colleague about the problem and fiddling with a bunch of sheet music and knitting patterns in the sitting room, I felt a bit of card sticking out - and there it was - IN A WHITE ENVELOPE!!  Who puts certificates in white envelopes!

Definitely cracking up.   It must be old age setting in.     Now to find my glasses :)


I hope your Monday is a bit more organised and that you have a great week.

At least the blackberries survived the storm
and they're not even one bit stressed

  3. I've got a bit of a habit of putting things down and then not being able to find them. I'm still looking for the pen that I put down for a second the other day. I mean, I've got dozens of identical pens but that was the one I was using at the time and it'd be nice to know where it went!

    1. Pens are a disaster - I reckon there's a pen heaven somewhere - all the plectrums go there as well!!

  4. So glad that I am not the only one who has those sort of 'moments'. Rather frustrating though!

  5. OK Fil, you're not alone & K calls it "putting something in a safe place, so you can find it".(lol). Not unusual, when you get to my age. Have a great week & take care.

  7. It is frustrating isn't it, especially when you find things where you didn't expect them to be. Love blackberries.
