Well my dear little bloggies, I can today confirm that I have officially lost the plot! (Actually, it's quite worrying, but see what you think).
Yesterday morning, I leisurely woke up, thinking to myself "oh wonderful, I have the whole day to myself". I went downstairs and, of course, the first thing I did was to switch on my laptop, intending to catch up on what was happening out there in Bloggyland.
I messed around a bit, and looked at the clock, which was showing 8.40 a.m. I was still thinking of this lovely day ahead of me, doing a bit of this and a bit of that. Now I don't know what made me look in my diary, but I did and, horror of horrors, it was showing that I had a hair appointment booked for 9.30 a.m. Bear in mind that it is now 8.40 a.m. and it takes me twenty minutes to drive to the Hairdressers.
Eeek! I had twenty minutes to get myself ready. I leapt in the shower, then, amazingly quickly, I threw on my make-up, then my jewellery. Necklace, check. Bracelet, check. Watch, check. Ear-rings, check. Rings, check. Money to pay for said hair-do, check. (In case Shady and Odie are wondering, yes, my clothes did get thrown on as well!).
By this time the newscaster is just starting to read out the 9 o'clock BBC news. On with my coat and boots and I flew out the door, feeling mightily pleased with myself, saying inwardly, "thank you Lord for making me look at my diary this morning." I still couldn't really believe that I had forgotten something so important as a hair appointment (!).
I turned on the car engine, then the radio, only to hear the Announcer saying that it was a beautiful Wednesday morning out there. Hang on a minute, WEDNESDAY morning?? My hair appointments are always on a THURSDAY morning. I had completely mixed up the days, so all that rushing was for nothing!
I walked back into the house and collapsed in a heap on the floor. As I said, "lead me to the home for the lost and bewildered"! Eeek!
