Oh Dear gosh

I finally managed yesterday to get my head together to find the time, energy and buckets of concentration required to type up and submit a post to carers into ‘I care for a person with dementia’ forum. It had taken me nearly 2 weeks to get it together and find it in me to risk posting. Once done I was so knackered a had a doze and it went on for 16 hours until this morning. I then had to get my energies up again to put a reply to all the fabulous comments I got about it. Don’t know why I worried, just stupid I guess.


This blog is good in that it gives me a way of putting things down that i would maybe feel stupid about in the main forums. So far as i know no-one sees them here or a least far fewer so I feel less exposed by putting my failings and mishaps. This is one of those moments….

I was feeling a bit peekish this afternoon, so went to the cupboard and got a packet of crackers and some cheese. When trying to open the cracker packet i found that it had no little tear round tag. I spun the packet in my hands and stared at it accusingly for about 10 minmutes unable to fathom how i was supposed to open it. Eventually i gave up and threw them back in the cupboard (crumbs now!!) and had just cheese ( not good i know). Couple of hours later it suddenly came to me that i could just ‘open the end’. Obvious. But why was it not obvious earlier. Brains eh…. who needs ’em?


Catch ya later
