I’m starting to realise there is only so much information that I can fit into my brain. If I could plug my self into my itunes account like my iphone, I could see just how my grey matter organises the inside of my head. Perhaps a little pink bar for memories and emotion, heaps of green space taken up by my thoughts and worries, a coloured section each for the kids, work, school, cake, food, drama, after school activities, recipes, the house, the husband. I wonder how much I can fit in, before my brain tells me to manage my storage or lose the next thought?
I think perhaps its nearly full? Is it possible for some of thoughts and memories to fall off the end of that little bar that holds all the coloured sections?
At this very moment it is midnight and I am sitting on the lounge typing up recipes for a new cookbook, watching my facebook page beacuase I have recently entered a cake into a Cake challenge competition for Lifestyle food, googling Canadian Poutine – beacause the television is on and Andrew Zimmen is in Montreal in Canada and I really want to make it for the kids. I’m thinking about folding those clothes that I can see out of the corner of my eye. They are spilling out of BOTH the baskets that are sitting on the floor while the dog sleeps on top of the winter uniforms that the girls have to wear to school tomorrow – I’ll have to dehair them in the morning!!!!. I can hear the washing machine running in the laundry and I just KNOW the girls stockings and the Frustrated Painters socks will be in there. If I don’t wait for them to finish and then run them through the drier, there will be tears and tantrums in the morning.
I have time, I can wait, I still have recipes to type …. because I forgot what I was doing earlier ? Was it typing recipes or starting those sugar flowers for one this weeks cakes Unfortunately the storage manager was nowhere to be found last week and I have overbooked myself this weekend. Some of those thoughts and memories have definitely fallen off the edge of my brains coloured bar and left me with a day late recipe deadline and OH so many cakes :)
THis is so I remember my own name LOL
X Wish me luck
