Do you consider yourself a forgetful person?  I know I do.  Do your family and friends know how forgetful you are?  Do they ring up and remind constantly of important dates, weekend aways etc?  I know I get those phone calls all the time.

When I need to remember something important I set a reminder on my mobile/cell phone.  Unfortunately I lost my old phone and when I got my new one, realised I don’t have anymore reminders, all the data is lost.  My friends have long given up on me remembering their birthdays let alone their childrens. 

Even my own important dates are written down, like my children’s birthdays and I can’t remember the rest but they are written down somewhere, I just can’t remember where.

Do you make shopping lists?  I do, cause when I go shopping I need the list to remember what is missing in my cupboard.  Then I forget to take the list shopping and come out of the grocery store with a shopping trolley full of stuff.  When I get home, unpack my groceries I realise, I haven’t brought anything on my list. 

Then I start chanting, must remember to buy flour, must remember to buy flour, must remember to buy flour.  This is a chant I have going on in my head for a couple of days until I get the shits with myself and go buy some flour.

To stop weevills appearing in my flour I pop it in the freezer for 24 hours to kill the eggs.

When I get home from my brief shop at the grocery storeto buy flour and still manage to spend $200 on items not on my shopping list but I finally have flour.

When I get home to pack away my groceries, I open the door of my freezer and see this.

Now I remember that I remembered the flour, I just forgot to take it out of the freezer.
