this is how it goes;i decide to wash the car ; I start towards the garage and notice the mail on the table . ok , im going to wash

the car , but first I will go through the mail. I lay the car keys down on the desk ,discard the junk mail and I notice the rubbish bin is full.

ok, ill just put the bills on my desk and take the rubbish bin out. since im going to be near the mailbox anyway ill pay these few bills first.

now where is the chequebook? oops theres only one cheque left. my extra cheques are in my desk . oh theres the coke I was drinking .

im going to look for those cheques . but first I need to put my coke further away from the computer, oh maybe ill put it in fridge to keep

it cold for a while ,I head towards kitchen and my flowers catch my eye , they need some water, I set the coke on the counter and uh, oh !

there are my glasses, I was looking for they all morning , id better put them away first, I fill I container with water and head for the flower pots

==aagh ,

some one left the tv remote in the kitchen,we will neverthink to look there tonight so I better put it back in the family room where it belongs.

I splash some water into the pots and onto the floor , I throw the remote onto the sofa and head back down the corridor try to figure out what

I was going to do .

end of day

the car is not washed, the bills are unpaid , the coke is sitting on kitchen counter, the flowers are half watererd, the cheque book still has

only one cheque in it and I cant find my car keys ! when I try to figure out what I have down all day im baffled because I know I

have been busy all day long ! I know this is a serious con dition and I will try to get help but first I think I will check my e-mails.

LOL I know it is wrong to laugh at others misfortunes but you do sound like me if I ever go into the kitchen I go into the fridge for a fruit teabag which is actually in the drawer next to the fridge then while waiting for the kettle to boil I have to go somewhere PDQ then I end up going into the lounge getting all comfy and utter a loud damn blast and B^%$ it I had forgoten my drink which was the reason of my journey in the first place the trouble is it all starts again my brain associates going to the kitchen for a drink with going to the loo for a pee. So tobydoo I am with you 100% of the way.


Busy doing nothing, working the whole day through, trying to find lots of things not to do :)

Yep rings a bell with me as well :d x


I am so glad someone has days like me. When my partner ask what I've been up to, I can never think of a thing, yet my day was so tiring????

Kindest regards



Lol, you described my day to a T. House like a tip, yet been 'Cleaning' all day. Hahaha.


Oh dear tobydoo, sounds like our house! Now, where was I? Take care xxxx


Brilliant. I am not alone LOL - Enjoyed reading about your day, put a proper smile on my face. :)



Know them days well, been trying to sand down a wall ready for papering, but the rest of the day just gets in the way, or things appear out the cupboard or microwave that you'd swear you didn't touch, or when your stood in the garden with a spanner for the table your putting together in the lounge and it shudda been a screw driver. me I put it down to the meds lol :D :X :D


Bloomin eck. I am worn out just reading that. No way I could do all that in a week. Well, maybe 4 days. You have to be organised if you are not fit. Rib


sounds like everyone's typical day, what in heavens arfe you complaining about - You don't want to be normal? As long as you don't forget sex and to eat Aunt Gertrude's blueberry pie al-lamode, you'll be fine.


My wife put my new socks in the fridge and my sausages in my sock draw.

I left my car at our local shop and walked home. In the evening my local shopkeepers son knocked on our door to ask the wife if I am all right because the car is parked outside the shop and no one has seen me? I was upstairs when they knocked and looked out off the bedroom window and was shocked the car was not on the drive and shouted down the car's been stolen! DOH!


What's a "cheque book?" lol


absolutely brilliant description of certainly 'any' day for me too - thank you xxx
