@ Wend. There are three doors next to each other, freezer is a small room, then toilet & then utility, so many people walk into the wrong one. I have put a sign saying WC on one, but people still end up in the freezer room. :-D :-D

I returned a library book today - one which I hadn't finished reading and it still had the bookmark in it :-S

What is weird about keeping a fridge in a drawer? If that is weird, then lots are weird. I keep my fridge in a drawer in the loo.

Wondering where on earth Bob tucks his fridge away when not in use :-S :-S :-S

I started counting the doorways in the house......... and sat down in the spare bedroom to read a book that was left there........

Don't laugh....... it was a novel about time travel

Only this afternoon I checked my bag in the house before going out for my purse - not there! but the car ashtray was! (don't smoke) Found the purse at last under the car seat.

Thank goodness for the door !!! ;-)

This should ease your pain....
Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next.

Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale."

It's not aging, it's the door!

This is the stage of life when you start wondering about the Hereafter

You go into a room, stand there for a while, wondering.......... what did I come in here after?


If I can't find something I look in the fridge ~ usually my keys. So far I haven't found shoes in the fridge.

If you're aware you're doing daft things you're OK, the day you think everything is fine is the problem!

I once took the Sky remote to work instead of my mobile.
Worse still, in front of everyone, I took it out my bag and tried to dial out.
It was sooooo embarrassing ... I worked at SKY!

I really peed my (then teenage) daughter off once, by taking the remote to work instead of my mobile.

......and I was a lot younger then .... :-S

I just have this vision of Paula in her freezer room, surrounded by hanging carcasses, blinking, shivering and looking bewildered :-0
