I had one of those short term memory failures again yesterday. Fortunately it occurred before I set off for work and I remembered in time that I had to go to a meeting somewhere else before going to the office. But as I had not remembered before I hadn’t got any of the paperwork or the details of where I was going. But I could remember enough details to be able to have a search on the internet and find where I was meant to go. It then meant I had a bit of time to kill, as I didn’t need to be there until 10, so I did some cleaning in the bathroom and kitchen and unloaded the dishwasher and did some washing up. I don’t think I have ever been that productive in my life before 9am (or very often after 9am either for that matter…).
My neighbour seems to lack the ability to turn off a tap. It is either dripping or running full blast – for days on end. I can hear it running into the drain when I am in the bathroom or the spare room. When I politely pointed it out to her and asked if she had a leak, it suddenly stopped, but slowly but surely she seems to be leaving it on bit by bit.
Not to belittle Obama becoming president, but I do wonder if there are some people in African nations who are thinking that they have had black presidents for years and the US is merely catching up with them.
