MEMORANDUM MONDAY

Can you believe it's the first Monday in April? I remember my gran saying (often) that time flies the older you get; in my youth I naively thought she was 'haverin' ( a good Scottish word meaning 'talking nonsense')....now I know differently!

Being Monday, it's time to check in with SIAN and the 'usual suspects' to share something new we might have learned or something we might have done for the first time during the course of the weekend.

The weekend itself saw me getting the house back to 'normal' after having my Craig and Kirsty and HER Craig here for a week....I also got to spend time doing some planting in my garden and for the FIRST time we now have some garden furniture under our pergola:





I also decided that this year, for the FIRST time, I am getting serious with the birds eating the cherries off our tree....no, I haven't gone out and bought an airgun or anything drastic.....I have draped a net over said tree:





.....and am hoping it does the trick.


I have resorted to looking up a website of trivia to be able to report something new I have learned....and I actually DID learn something that pertains to ME....did YOU  know that the word 'LETHOLOGICA' describes the state of not being able to remember the word you want? You wouldn't believe how many times that happens to me...please tell me I'm not alone!!

Have a good week my friends...hope it's not too LETHOLOGICAL for you (or me for that matter!)

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx

  1. No, you're not alone - lethologica is most definitely a word that applies to me!

    I like your garden furniture and good luck with the cherries.

  2. Your patio & pergola look so inviting. I like your new word. I have often seen local cherry trees with the nets on them & the wineries all have air canons that go off every 30 minutes to scare the birds away.

  16. Forgetting words has been one of the worst symptoms of fibromyalgia. When I was first diagnosed, I found it happening to me at least a half dozen times a day and it was so frustrating. I seem to have developed coping skills and find it happens less now thankfully. I do hope the net does the trick for you!

  17. How lovely is your patio! And that sun .... Sigh of envy! Great word - I seem to remember that in classical mythology, if you drank from the river Lethe you would forget everything. Nice to see 'havering' - we use it a lot!

  18. Two new words for me and being half Scottish and married to a Scot I can't believe I hadn't heard the one. I must remember haverin' and I too suffer from lethologica - nice to know it happens enough that there is a word for it. My the patio furniture looks lovely. Hoping that you have plenty of use out of it.
