There Go My Marbles

I think I'm loosing my marbles, in fact I can see them rolling down the hill as we speak. My Doctor says it may be the beginning of the Peri Menopause.........."The Peri what a Pause" I said................"There's a bit before the change I'm afraid and it can go on for years." she replied. I cant believe it, I really cant. I can just about cope with the hot sweats and slight irritability...................Actually..............To be fair.................Slight is an understatement.

Its the dippyness that I worry about, just in the last month I have done some crazy stuff that is very out of character for me....

1. Looked for my glasses for over 2 hours only to find them perched on top of my head............... And I think I actually wore them to look in a drawer for them.

2. Lost the phone only to notice the butter was on the hook and the phone was in the fridge.............To be fair, that could of been because I didn't have my glasses on.

3. Thought my car had been stolen only to remember I had driven up the road and walked back by mistake. I was seconds away from calling the Police..........Oh what a field day they would of had.

4. Gave HRH the door keys as she was popping out and I was getting in the shower, then realised that I had let her lock "me in" the house with no form of escape other than the window. She then "popped" out a bit longer than had been promised and I had to sign for a parcel through the letterbox. I still cant look the Parcel Force man in the eye.

5. Went to the fridge to look at 2 cream scones (just to look at as I'm on a diet) and then went back an hour later only to find they had gone from the box. Actually convinced myself that I had eaten them with no recollection only to discover HRH had eaten them and in true Teen style put the empty box back in the fridge.

You see.....................Its all very strange or as my Doctor said "Very normal for a woman of my age"......MY AGE......I'm only 43 for heavens sake.

Apparently its a good sign that I can remember songs from long ago, although sometimes I think its the artists get the words wrong and not me...........................................

Anyway..................What was I saying..................Nope.....................Its gone...............Sorry.

  12. Oh you are not alone with these shenanigans. I have actually found my phone in the fridge before, right next to the cheese. I didn't even know I'd lost it!! I don't think it's the peri meni whatisitsface, I think it's the inevitable result of having kids...the brain is never the same!!
