Perhaps It’s My Age…

I have definitely been doing a few crazy things lately.

  • My friend visited with a major sewing crisis. We moved the dining table into the lounge and had fabric and stuff all over the dining room floor for about 6 hours. At one point she asked if she could use the loo. I directed her to ‘just by the front door’ – but that’s in Kirby, in this house it is next to the kitchen. Fancy not knowing where your own WC is!
  • For two weeks I muttered about missing my wrist watch because I was wearing a splint. Only on the morning I when went back to the hospital did I suddenly realise that if only I had taken off my WWJD bracelet, I could have worn my watch on my right hand!
  • For 20 years, when Bob has been working out in the garage, I have banged on the kitchen wall and shouted Food’s Ready! at mealtimes. I got a little frustrated that he didn’t seem to respond when I did it here. It finally dawned on me – the garage is not directly behind the kitchen - there’s a downstairs loo in between. I have to go into the loo and bang on that wall to alert him.

Are these ‘Senior Moments’ do you think?  I am certainly at the age where I believe in the Hereafter – I get upstairs and ask ‘What am I here after?’

In recent weeks, I know that quite a few more people [both in Norfolk and Dorset] have started reading the blog. Welcome aboard, and thanks for the kind comments


My wrist feels fine, and I have been able to start knitting again. This is a little project I have started to use up some of my stash off double knit yarn. It is a fascinating pattern, one I have not attempted before – I am intrigued to see how it will turn out. Watch this space!


  1. Of course it's not your age as I'm sure you are younger than me :-)

  2. I've been like that all my life, so wouldn't notice any change lol!

  3. A girl in school and I are drinking tea and marvelling at your project!

  4. I'm blaming all mine on pregnancy brain.
    For Red nose day my DD wanted a red headband knitted. Half way through crocheting the darn thing (the night before!) I realised I'd made it in blue! BLUE! No clue why, had to restart in red a stay up late to finish it. Lol

    X x x

  5. Oooh, I SAY, it looks like a Sailor collar!!! I saw this amazing knitted sailor top in a vintage shop near us but they wanted £65 for it!!!
    Don't worry, I have senior moments all the time! All the time! All the time! I apologise to my kids for them all the time!x

  6. Your knitting looks intriguing! We all have those 'senior' moments. They're even worse when you really are 'senior'!!


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
