:lol: I can relate to that but in truth I have always been vague as a violet.
My mind is always elsewhere when I am performing everyday tasks and I am easily distracted.

60 years ago when visiting my in-laws with their first (and new) grandchild, I walked to the butcher's with babe in pram.
Full shop, so I parked the pram where I could see it through the window.
After buying m-i-l's meat, I took it back to her, and was taken aback when hubby said "Where's the baby?!"
Oh! At the butchers! :eek

And that's 60 years before senility set in.
I dream, therefore I am.

I enjoyed watch my grandson only this morning put his cereal box in the fridge then turn around and wonder where the milk was. I didn't say anything - he's 15 - but went away and gloated gloriously because I haven't done that.....yet! :lol:

My husband just asked me if it would be ok to put the packetof Cornflakes in a spare new unused Uncle Toby's Oats tin. As long as you put a label on the top of the Tin was my reply! :lol:
