The other day, I was waiting with the other parents at school pick up. I saw my friend and gave her a big hug and said, “Happy new year! Feels like I haven’t seen you in ages!”
To which she replied, “we saw each other last week. We had a play date, remember?”
After we’d laughed that off, I then turned to one of the other mums and proceeded to start telling her something … and then stopped myself, as I slowly started to remember I’d told her the same thing the day before and we’d had a full on conversation about it.
… Oops (again).
I blame Dry January. Clearly, giving up wine for the month has exacerbated my brain fog and left a big old tumbleweed where my memory used to be. I knew there must be a good reason why I’ve never taken part in this ridiculous fad before!
