Hester......right then....thanks ..........I'll just stick to muttering like a mad woman
The food stories remind me of many years ago when I went into the kitchen & thought "strange smell" - but almost as quickly it was gone.
Over the next few days it became more noticeable until I could smell it all the time.
Eventually tracked it down to a lump of ox heart I'd put into the (rarely used) big oven to defrost for the cat's tea ..... about 2 weeks before .
Unfortunately was not to be the last time it happened
Ah...........that was you then Beckie ?

I catch myself talking when im in the supermarket, huh, thats got as many calories in as trifle, pah not buying that at that price- and then you realise there is someone stood next to you! Foor open up please!
When I'm in that situation I look around and say " he's vanished again. Every time I want him he's disappeared"
This thread makes me feel so much better! When my husband was my boyfriend we had arranged to meet at a cinema. As I was driving into the car park I realised he'd said the other one. So went to drive straight back out again. But managed to drop the car park ticket in the car turning round. Turned up after about 20 mins of searching, thinking I was going mad. It had managed to get in a slot in the plastic panel of the car door. By which time I needed to pay. So had to go all the way to the shopping centre to pay and come back again before I could get out and drive to the other cinema. was a bit embarrassing explaining that one....
I have them all the time specially on here, have you not noticed!!!!!!!!!!!
I had a major senior moment tonight.......,.quack quack oops
Have you ever taken a pair of shoes to the cobblers tried explaining your wanting the strap sewn on. Only to find you have lost it ( more ways than one) and while your rooting about in your bag and explaining you must have left it at home but clearly knowing you put them both together, holding the Que up - 6 people behind you and getting flustered by the second - only to get a tap on the shoulder and to be asked IF the shoe in your other hand is the other shoe you are looking for???????????
I was 40 years old THEN!!!!!!!!!
Ha ha ha Grancan Not quite the same as your story, but I have done that with shoes that had an elastic thing across them which was lost and I was trying to explain it needed an new elastic thing........hard work!! They are my driving shoes now
Bekkie, I always talk to myself in supermarkets. Seems a normal thing to do. I talk to food while cooking it and tell it off for burning or taking too long.
CurlyCarly, I had a fob attached to my keys that bleeped when I whistled it (not quite as upmarket as the one activated by a mobile phone) and it was wonderful.....until the day I left my keys in a pocket and washed them!
Seriously, can anyone tell me where to get those keys? Can't whistle, tho'
These moments definitely don't have to be senior. I was in my twenties when I boarded a bus and asked the driver for '20 Embassy Regal please'. It had been a long day at work.
My niece left her flat in a hurry one morning and grabbed the bag she had ready for the bin which she promptly threw away. Only when she got to work did she realise she had thrown away her sandwiches and had taken potato peelings for lunch
