It didn’t take long to remove cups, glassware, jugs, saucers, dishes and plates and wash the shelves but putting them back was a trial. I thought I could remember where everything went, bearing in mind that some items were seldom used while others were used daily. Suddenly faced with empty shelves I was lost. First attempt was all wrong, as was the second and third. Isn’t it amazing how quickly one can forget?
The trouble is I am an organised sort of person. I like order and everything having its own place, essential these days with a memory that leaves a lot to be desired. I have always been the same; it drove Joe mad but then he was the untidiest person I ever met. These days regimentation is playing a big part in keeping the memory on an even keel. Memory is a powerful asset but when it starts to play up action has to be taken. My way is to write stuff down – all I have to do then is remember where I put the paper or pad!!
Seriously, taking notes has been and still is a godsend, it saves a lot of anxious moments when the memory fails. Heehee just hope I don’t forget how to write!
The iPhone is a useful thing to have, not just for taking pictures or phoning people but for making notes, keeping dates, even a timer when something is cooking in the kitchen. And a torch. Who would have thought you could use a phone as a torch? I have had this phone for a long time but am still amazed by its versatility. I mean, I can even read a book on the phone or buy and pay for stuff if I want to. I don’t do the latter – there’s too many villains around for my liking. I saw on television today that advice is being given for everyone to take a break from anything technical. Those advisors probably have good memories!!
