If I had a brain I'd be dangerous!

If I had a brain I would have known that those tulips which, on the pack, said they were "an unusual colour combination" which looked dull and uninteresting (basically, beige with pinkish beige) would be - mega-boring and - well, beige!

And when I planted another trough with tulips - some cream am some purple, and the cream ones, described as 10" but were actually 15" which dwarfed the purple ones, instead of just moaning about it I should instantly have seen that all I had to do was . . . . . . . . . . .  turn the trough around so the cream ones were at the back!  Simples. (it took me a couple of days to work that one out.  'nuff said!)

And when I said I could manage with a smaller greenhouse because my new garden is a lot smaller than before, I should have known that I would quickly run out of space for seedlings, over-wintered plants etc.

And when I said that, with the new-to-us house with a small garden would be fine - I was self-delusional.

If only I wasn't a scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz, I would have had half a brain and would have known these things.

Please tell me I'm not alone!

    The other week I realised I didn't have a full size soil rake. I must have just imagined owning one, how funny...Today I found it hanging on the opposite wall on the shed. Why didn't I just look for it? I was in the shed at the time.

    Also today I heated up a bag of onion sets on the hob, melting the plastic bag. The oven had its Spring wipe-down today (I don't really cook) and I must have turned a couple of knobs in error?

    My mind must have been on higher matters todayimage

     I think you must be a long lost relative of my missus.  That's the sort of thing she comes out with when trying to work with technology!.

    Life is too short to text on a mobile phone.  If I want OH to consider/discuss/do/remember something I send an email.

     I can't do that because I'm only connected with wi fi and it doesn't work when I'm out the house.

    If I'm out of the house it can wait cos I'm busy either running errands or having fun.

     I only do it to tell him I'm coming back.

    No point in trying to communicate with OH by mobile - he won't have it with him image

    I have to send the message as soon as I think about it as sometimes no matter how important it is I'm the one that will forget.

    Technology for me is such a life saver!
