I had a little moment earlier in the week...I had just completed the test for spotting the early signs of dementia
'Do you forget where you have left things? '
'Do you forget that you have done things and then accuse others of being wrong when they correct you?'
When I had reason to doubt myself. I had misplaced a rather nice Joules sweatshirt...annoying in itself...but it has a matching gilet...so doubly annoying. I had searched everywhere...to no avail. Anyway Robyn (daughter) turns up...I am looking at her sweatshirt...she has a few layers on but I can see it and it looks like my lost property...I question the suspect:
No you bought me this (I don't think so that one was grey not pale blue)
Anyway I have had it for ages (does this give her squatters rights? I think not!)
It would be too big if it were yours (Is there any need! Okay she is a size 8 so she may have a point)
I then nearly wrestle her to the ground... in order to look at the label in the back...it is difficult with so many layers...I even insist that she takes off her coat...and there it is SIZE 14...now I accept that neither of us is actually a size 14...but I am the closest, and it was bought knowing the benefits of Lycra...it is now in the washing machine.
I can't remember now...was over reacting to minor misdemeanours an early sign of dementia!!
