The old me

April 2012 017

Yay! I woke up at the normal time today and feel like I used to do before I went away. So it did take a day for every time zone to feel better.

I’ve been catching up with all my friends, such as Mary, who told me how worried she gets about forgetting the most basic of facts – e.g. the names of friends’ partners, and I told her not to worry, that it happens to everyone, that I once forgot the name of my brother-in-law. So she said “Oh well, if you do it, that’s OK, because I think of you as being on-the-ball.”

Later I saw Ruth and Annie, and we were all saying how we can’t remember the plots of books we have read, and sometimes ones we’ve read in the last month. I left Ruth’s house and walked down the dark rainy street under my umbrella, and found the car and had a struggle to get in, with my umbrella and basket and big bag of books. When I put the key in the ignition it wouldn’t turn. I switched on the light to see why not, and saw that the car seats were grey, and not black, like mine. I was in the wrong Polo!

This is me, signing off, the woman who is on-the-ball.
