Good morning everyone.
Last month, my GP arranged for a follow up appointment for routine bloods and stuff. I duly went home and put it in the electronic diary on my laptop with a 24 hour reminder.
As it happens, I trundled up there on this very fresh breezy morning (not an unpleasant trip) to discover that the appointment is next week. Yet I was so sure it was today. Is it the concept of noting appointment times in this way which has made me so complacent? You’d think the fact that the reminder didn’t pop up might have aroused my suspicions. But no. I even went into the diary and looked at it. I was so convinced it said the ninth, yet I’m not known for such oversights about appointments. What is it about putting things onto a computer? It’s such a mismatch of what I thought and what I actually did.
Anyway it gave me a good giggle and I feel much better for going out and talking to human beings. .
Best wishes, Steve.
