Is there any wonder my head spins sometimes?

Ash, first thing this morning: 'it's looking a bit autumnal out there'.

Me, after a trip downstairs to make the tea: 'it doesn't look as autumnal downstairs as it does from up here'.

Ash: 'is it looking autumnal then?'


Me, when we'd got downstairs: 'don't forget to pick up your prescription this morning'.

Ash: 'it's in the diary'.

Me: 'it was in the diary for Friday but we forgot about it'.

Ash, after getting the diary out:  'Here it is, I've got an appointment for a blood test tomorrow morning'.

Me: 'yes but you've got to pick up your prescription this morning'.

Ash:  'Have I?  It's not in the diary'!!!!!
