I M Twiddle The Second...

What was I thinking of??

I reached home this evening a bit later than usual, parked my car and was gathering my handbag, tupperware, preparing to get down from the car, when suddenly my eyes caught the sight of Fernie's schoolbag behind the passenger car seat. For a moment, I was thinking, "hey, why is her schoolbag here?" OH GOSH!!!
Then I suddenly panicked.... I had lunch with her this afternoon and dropped her back to school after that....AND THAT MEANS.... I WAS SUPPOSED TO FETCH HER AFTER WORK!!!

YO!!! Quickly, I started my car again and Zoomed at full gear to her school....my goodness, it was already 5.30pm, well over her time to go home. All the while driving, I was thinking why had I forgotten to pick her up.... The first thing Fernie said when she got into my car was "Mi, u never thought of me?" I didn't have the heart to say "Yes" ... Sorry is a much better word...

  5. I think we get so preoccupied with our thoughts that we just forget. When my children were younger, I would drive all the way to work...and they would sit quietly on the back seat...not saying a word about them having to be dropped off at school:) Which would make me seriously late for work.
