Today has been a very constructive day as far as research for my book goes. My brother came over for the afternoon accompanied by his daughter (my niece) who kept my little princess amused for a couple of hours whilst we compared memory banks! The great thing was we each recalled separate instances which made for great research once all put together. Its amazing what your mind chooses to remember or to forget, being reminded of one small detail or one place can bring back a flood of memories … I was writing ferociously whilst he was here in the fear that once he had left I may forget again!
Why is it when you need to pay your memory bank a visit it fails you at the very moment you need it? I find this happens to me more often than not…maybe this is a little sneak preview into old age (a taster as it was)! Note to self: start writing lists! Not that I’m old of course – far from it, but try telling my memory this! I have come to conclude that our memory banks are sectioned into four departments as follows: the past, the present, the future, and finally, when I can be bothered to recall!!! Well this seems to be the case in my head at least. I’m sure my brain is well insulated with B vitamins as I have been eating marmite for years, so there is absolutely no excuse! Lets hope today’s reminders from my brother has helped to “jump start” those sleeping memory cells!Follow me
