Saw the neuro pyschologist yesterday and he tested my visual and auditory memory skills. Apparently they range from low average to average and thankfully there is not much deterioration from 10yrs ago. What did surprise me though was that I failed (spectacularly!) on a concentration test where I was interrupted. Still doesn't answer all my questions though about why I still get so muddled up but will see what St Thomas' say on Tuesday and then my follow up appointment with the neurologist.
Have decided I am going to make life easy for myself by not taxing my memory and if I people ask me something am going to have a stock reply 'I can't remember' and if not sure if I've got appointment times right just ring and ask and if people think I'm a stupid old bat then that is their problem!
