Forget-me-not

There I was, lying under my sun umbrella, listening to the waves lapping against the shore and totally tuning out of life.
Beep, beep.
Dam text message brought me back to earth with a bang, or should I say beep.
It was from a friend in Ireland looking for something that I should have given to her before I came on holiday. I replied
Sorry about that but I'm on holiday in Turkey at the moment. I'll get it to as soon as I return.
I pressed the send button and settled back down. Two seconds later I was sending an amended text.
Shit! I'm not in Turkey, I'm in Abu Dhabi!
I've read that this is what happens to rock stars when they're jetting all over the world on tour. They forget what country they're in.
Well at least the ones with Alzheimer's do!

  1. You are totally forgotten Miss because the Forget-Me-Nots are not in flower in November, well at least not here in Laois.

  2. The Cherry Brandy is maturing very well & I shall be slurping away at it very soon.
    Just thought that you would like to know that ?

    1. Sounds just the thing to warm the cockles of your heart on a November's evening!
