SoCS – multitasking failure!

Normally I am very good a packing for a trip away. My toiletry bag is always ready to go, just add to the suitcase or weekender bag. Then in goes a multi-USB plug to charge iPads, phones and my Apple watch.

Except yesterday.

I forgot just one thing… the watch charging cable!


Fortunately my lovely nephew, also an Apple Watch owner, will come to my rescue later today.


Note to self, put a spare cable in the toiletry bag for future trips, thus not relying on my memory!

In my defence, I was working (i.e. my paid job), doing 5 loads of laundry seeing as we wouldn’t be home this weekend, and worrying about my mum, who’d been back in hospital yet again, this time for pneumonia.

As we traveled north to see her, I discovered my omission, but got the news she’d been discharged home again. In the grand scheme of things, a watch with a flat battery is a minor detail. I’m just happy she’s home again.

Wishing you all a peaceful Saturday xx

One-liner Wednesday – now what did I come in here for?

I told myself I didn’t need to write it down. I’d remember it. I’m good at that.

And then a huge lump of menopause brain fog sneaked up and got me! Now I can’t remember what I was looking for, far less write it down!
