Feeling well chuffed with myself I've gone for my walk and am puddling about in my kitchen. All of a sudden I become aware of this weird feeling down the left side of my head so I blow my nose, sniff, shake my bald noggin about and pull faces. The weirdness persists.
'What new hell is this?' More  sniffing, blowing and shaking. Do I need to start stressing? Googling? What is it? 
Anyway, thiis nonsense goes on for twenty minutes and by now I've convinced my self it's getting worse. Some sort of precursor to a stroke? Why me? Why now? This was looking like a good day...
So I trudge off to the shower with my head on sideways wondering what to do next and the end of my earbud drops out of my ear and rolls across the bathroom floor. Crisis averted.
Seriously. Can I have my brain back please?

    Answer, No! No brain, memory and thinking are over rated. You can function quiet well with out them. I have been getting by for 14 months, where has the time gone? Don't know can't remember! Far better to be living and able to laugh at yourself.

    OH this gave me a chuckle!  I just ask that question today!!  All prepared this morning for my yearly scan at the Wesley, I grab my previous scans and my referral and take the 45 minute drive to the breast clinic.  As hubby (who came along for support) and I walk into the clinic my eyes fall on my referral date...mmmm....13 Feb! 

    I somehow thought today was my date.  I had it in my mind I needed to be at the clinic 23 Jan!...Where is my mind!!!

    Lucky for my hubby just smiled, gave me a caring hug and said "that's ok hun, you take the car and go to work and I'll catch a train home".  Where is my brain?
