Chemo brain plays havoc with clocks!

Just want to give you all a laugh with my antics last night as I put the clocks back or at least tried to!

I stopped my watch and took the battery out of my alarm clock intending to restart both an hour later. However, I got engrossed in games on my iPad and it was nearly 2 hours later that I remembered the time had to be changed. So I noted the time from my mobile phone and replicated that on my watch and alarm clock without thinking.

This morning when I looked at the kitchen clock which I hadn't touched last night, it said the same time as my watch and alarm clock and I realised I hadn't put the clocks back at all! All I'd done was wake myself up an hour earlier than necessary! I had to laugh at my mistake and decided to blame it on chemo brain and to share my antics with people who would totally understand I hope!

Hope you are all enjoying the autumn colours this weekend.

Best wishes to you all,

Barbara

I so have chemo brain ... my husband delights in correcting my ditsyness... he bought me some raspberry biscuits as he knows I still have trouble with my tastebuds and he thought it would be sharp enough for me... lovely thing to do ... I asked for a biscuit bowing perfectly well it was raspberry but strawberry 🍓 came out of my mouth 😳 Lol 😂

I am laughing at your mistake, well my problem is that my dogs wanted their dinner at 3.30 instead of 4.30 sure they didnt know the clock had gone back, so I usually tend to let them wait when the clock goes backwards, its easier, I am a good Mum to them otherwise. Then my oldie get a fruisimide at 7.45 every night and she would come over for it as its usually in a piece of meat or cheese. Tonight as doddery as she is, she came looking at 6.45 the old time. She is in heart failure and is about 14, she is a rescue so that is why I am not sure of her age. She is hanging in there.

Glad it amused you. Children and pets always find changing the clocks difficult. Hope your two soon adjust to the new meal time!
