Dippy or deceased?

Getting my lines crossed is becoming more common now. Twice this week I have expected one set of events to happen only to find that I have misunderstood the intentions of other people. I have no doubt that this is all my fault but a feeling of resolve is fast being replaced by a need to double check, triple check in some cases to make sure I get it right!

Yesterday for instance I waited for a friend to arrive in the late morning...I finally got a phone call at lunch time to say she was on her way....

I thought we were going out for lunch and then on to do some Christmas shopping together . I was wrong...she had brought her presents for me and was clearly expecting lunch!

She got bacon butties I'm afraid....not what either of us were expecting!

I still am not sure how or why our lines got crossed but I now have a growing mound of wrapped bulky pressies which I shall have to look at before setting off on my Christmas cruise. I would never get them into a suitcase!

A card from another friend reveals the failure of another plan , now scheduled to be tackled early next year...

It's not that I forget things all that often but I do get events in the wrong order!

Confusion often follows me around.....we are on speaking terms...but I suppose at my age I should expect it...and let's face it, being an ancient, slightly dippy old lady is better than the alternative......
