On Holiday.....

Unfortunately this title is misleading (although I fervently wish it wasn't) I am not taking a holiday, not in any way, shape or form. It seems that a certain part of my psyche has though; it's packed it's bags, has bid the rest of me "adieu" and has officially gone on holiday.
      The part of me that is missing is my brain - kind of an essential part of the body if you ask me.
Seems like it's taken a quick gander at it's surroundings, observed the chaos and insanity and decided to make a run for it. I can't blame it really.
    The problem is I'm struggling without it and I would quite like it back.

Observe the following;

I am constantly "about" to do something - I just can't remember what that something was.

When calling out to any one of my children I go through quite a few until I get the right one, "Georgie...Josh...Bell....damn-it...Oliver!" ( and no, damn-it is not one of my children's names)

I leave things behind...forgot the nappies, wipes, lunches, drink bottles, spare clothing, hats...I remembered the children - does that count?

I start sentences, get halfway through and then.....Huh? What? Where was I? Forget what I was talking about.

So, if anyone sees a brain (smallish, a bit daft) enjoying a Pina Colada on an exotic beach somewhere please send it back my way.
I would really appreciate it.


  1. unfortunately I know all too well about these 'holidays'........

  2. LOL!! I think your brain and my brain are on holiday together. They have a LOT in common by the looks and YES I think remembering to take the kids with you when you leave home has GOT to count for something.

    Maybe we should put in a missing persons report for them? Perhaps we should be shopping for new ones?? I'm not really sure what to do.......what was I saying again.....? xx

  3. @Peta, "Holidays" are a regular occurrence around here. The frequency has increased since becoming a parent...I wonder if that has something to do with it?
    @Crap Mamma, Our brains have probably taken off somewhere fabulous like Bora-Bora or the Greek Isles. Maybe we should go and find them? Knowing me we'll get there and have to turn around again as I'll forget what we were looking for.......
