I am worried about me !!

I made some grapefruit marmalade a couple of weeks ago ... ( always make my own)  I had a few fruits left over plus some lemons from the garden...   so decided to make some more, simple did the necessary things and boiled the fruit  hey presto  ready for sugar ..umphhhh ! not enough sugar.

So today I went for my normal daily swim at 8.30am  ( yes I know you are thinking .... how highly commendable) after the swim I had full intentions of going to the supermarket for the sugar ... I know you are thinking the right things now!! YES! you can believe it I came back home minus the sugar, and this was the main reason for going to the market I could have managed with out all the other items for a few days ....   I just don't seem to retain details in my brain any more, I can be doing something and half way through  I get sidetracked , I  can even start up the computer to search for something on Google and when I have finished on the computer I have not even searched  for the original item .....
I used to remember phone numbers but now the mobile remembers them for me ..... Names they just elude me in fact I now just apologise if I can't remember anyones name and say so ... OH!! dear this must be age ... They say you are as old as you feel and at present my brain is making me feel in my dotage.

Oh I know what you mean about the computer! I do it all the time. I probably (?) signed on to research something, but here I am reading blogs!

That's alright Mabel, I too forget all sorts of things - it's just because our brains are full of important things such as - how to stitch a perfect seam etc. LOL
