It’s a whatchamacallit!

Today, I forgot the word for hailstones.

I’m often playing a game of charades with myself these days,using hand gestures and drawing shapes out in mid air or clicking my fingers and squinting my eyes whilst desperately trying to trawl through my memory to remember names for objects until I trigger something in my brain before triumphantly recalling it’s name and letting out a big sigh of relief.

I first had the idea to write about my peri-menopause whilst on holiday ...

… but then forgot about it!

Bought a two thousand-seventeen

Calendar with important means…

Larger spaces,

Less egg on faces,

Less forgotten appointments re-schemed!
