I've got two left feet at the moment. Do you go through stages where you trip, drop things, run into things more often than normal? At the moment I'm completely unco and not with it.

Yesterday I lost the car keys. Turned the house upside down looking for them. Was running 20 minutes late for school so I just grabbed the spare set and left the back door unlocked. After dropping the kids off I tucked my cold hands deep into my pockets - lo and behold they were there the whole time!

Then you have that thing when you try to get around someone and they go the same way and you end up having a little dance. You get three types of reactions when this happens: the embarrassed person who doesn't want to acknowledge it; the busy angry person who's in a rush; and the person who laughs at the ridiculous tango you're doing.

Then there's the even more embarrassing tango. When you go Iin for a friendly peck on the check and you both go the same way. Then you move and end up planting one right on the lips.

This morning I put Goosey's shoes on the wrong feet. Then I put D in the wrong car seat. I cut my own toast into quarters. I put dirty clothes in the bin and a dirty nappy in the washing basket.

I'm tripping, I'm stuttering, I'm a walking accident!

It's just not working for me!

Tell me I'm not alone and you go through phases like this too?


  1. It's not just you. I walked into a pole the other day while I was texting. Funnily enough, I had just read a research article about multitasking (and how actually neither men nor women can actually do things simultaneously)...clearly I was proof that walking + texting was too much!!

  2. Definitely not just you. I pick up things in one room to put into another, walk out with them still under my arm or in my pocket. Cooking is the worst for me at the moment, I can't seem to get it together and things are either burnt or have too much or too little of ingredients.
    Hope things get back on track for you soon Corinne.

  3. Not alone at all.
    I do believe the 'cure' coincides with your children leaving home.
    Then it's a short stretch before dementia kicks in.

  4. God yes! Mr Woog took the car today and it was pissing down raining so we had to catch a cab to school and when we got there, I said goodbye to Jack had he said "Huh?" and I realised. I had left his hearing aids at home. Back we go!

    Day did not improve much xxx

  5. Of course everyone has days like this hun!

    Last week included:
    Folding dirty clothes to be put away before realising they hadn't been washed yet!
    Forgetting to eat my breakfast then eating 2 lunches.

    My all time worst was leaving my wallet in empty grocery bags. This once resulted in me calling building security who were going to have to visit the infamous bin room in the apartment building to scour the trash looking for my wallet... I found it in the fridge of all places!

  6. Haha, this post made me smile Corinne. That is me, unco. I have annoying, silly, ridiculous little things happen to me ALL the time. I think it's because we have too much on our plates and are rushing around trying to get things done constantly. It would stand to reason on a law of averages that the more you do, the more chance you have of stuffing up. Surely!? xo

  7. I am a clumsy mess every day, makes life a little more interesting! Xo
