You know how it is ..you pop out for a few minutes to pick up some milk, next thing you know 3 hours have passed ! I was at a friends 50th birthday BBQ today and my memory took the opportunity to slip out for a wander and just forgot to come back! I was chatting away happily to people I knew ( their names ,not just their faces, for a change) when a new arrival started doing the introduction rounds. When he got to me he said ” Oh I know Lindy already”. Well I was smart enough to infer that we must have met because he knew my name but not smart enough to stop myself blurting out ” where did we meet?” Turns out I work with him ! Apparantly he’s new , and in my defence he wasn’t in uniform, but another friend kindly ( and loudly) pointed out he’d helped us with a difficult transfer only 2 days before!
If only my memory was more reliable. I just can’t trust it any more with even the most basic tasks. The Writer knows this so sent me a text to remind me to pick up the milk on the way home because I forgot the note to remind me to pick up the milk!

I know what you mean – this is why I changed my diet and am now gluten and sugar free, it was worth it the lights are coming back on!
Not disciplined enough to try that yet! Hoping that freing up my life from work stress will help the memory!

I just posted a review of the detox smoothie that’s made it so easy for me ..
I know exactly how you feel with this memory thing. It really annoys me when I was just holding something in my hand two minutes ago and now I have no idea where that thing is… 😉
I was meaning to reply but got sidetracked for a second and here it is days later and I finally remembered. Now the question is What was I going to do when I got interrupted by remembering to do this?
This was funny, Lindy. I think your memory is fine. BBQ parties tend to short circuit facial recognition centres in the brain. Brains prefer BBQ related multitasking like, holding plate in one hand and shaking a bottle of sauce on some baby back ribs with the other. Good luck out there.
I obviously didn’t take into account the BBQ factor. My memory thanks you for your vote of confidence – it doesn’t get many lately.
