It happened to me yet again yesterday. I headed out of the room to make myself a cup of coffee. The parcel that had just been delivered was sitting in the hallway. I new exactly what it was but the box seemed very large for just twelve rolls of kitchen towel.
I went back into the study to collect a pair of scissors to open the package. The cardboard would of course be good if I have a painting package so I open it carefully.. I fold the cardboard and store it safely and put the kitchen rolls into the conservatory ready to take out to my workspace.
I return to the kitchen and open the fridge. I notice something I had promised myself would be in a curry later so I remove it and prepare it.
That being done I return to the computer and yes you got it right, no coffee. Thank goodness I have a coffee machine I can operate from my phone so start it off to make the mug of coffee.
I was sitting chuckling thinking I was just like the old couple who had been advised by the doctor to make notes. They were physically fine for their age but the memory was playing up.
