Of all the things I've lost

As we were driving to the beach yesterday I mentioned to Husband that when I'd gone to slimming class the day before, a traffic jam caused by road works had led me to go a different way, and that I'd been completely disoriented and ended up going around the houses because I couldn't work out where I was. Husband said, 'I'm not surprised. You spend most of your time in a dream world only entering the real world now and again so when you do it discombobulates you.'

I'm not sure that's true but as I think Suburbia says on her blog, I live in my own little world but it's all right because they know me here.

Over the door to the kitchen in Zac's is a tiny plaque. You wouldn't notice it unless it were pointed out to you and it reads: Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most. We were discussing this in Zac's on Tuesday and I said, actually I miss my mind the least; what I miss the most is my pink jumper.

I last had it about 22 years ago in Derby. It was my favourite jumper, v-necked, soft and pale pink. And it disappeared. If I'd left in Derby then Mother-in-law would have sent it to me so I have no idea what happened to it.

Have you lost anything you really miss?

Oh, yes, but I can't think what because I have lost my memory as well.

No problem then, katney!

Well, which is more fun, I wonder, the slight dream world you inhabit because you have an active imagination, or a totally down-to-earth world of chores and duties and responsibilities?

Like you, I'd much prefer to be in and out of my dreamscape.

Sensible choice, nick.
