Bad Memory is one thing - this is just plain weird
This being a house-work day I did a large wash-load of tops and skirts this morning.
When washed I split the load into two piles for drying and put the first lot in the dryer.
The second lot went into the dryer about three quarters of an hour later and I mentally noted I would need two ordinary hangers and three skirt hangers, so got them ready.
Later as I carted them upstairs to hang them up I found I was one skirt short, so, thinking I had dropped it on the way upstairs I retraced my steps...........No skirt!
I looked in the washing machine, then in the dryer, then examined every nook and cranny minutely, not a trace of it was there.
Over the next half hour I searched and puzzled and finally admitted defeat.
I have just reached into the airing cupboard for a towel and there on a hanger in the front of the row of clothes airing was the skirt.
I have absolutely no memory of putting it there and no idea how I could have done so without being conscious of doing so.
Over the years I have done some pretty strange things, some I've blogged about, the habit of leaving a slipper in one place and the other elsewhere etc., but this is truly absent-mindedness on a grand scale.
Please someone tell me I am not about to bid farewell to my last marble.
