It's the daily routine that's to blame, I'm convinced of it, because now I've stopped jetting backwards and forwards and thinking outside the box, I'm back to forgetting where I've put things - again!
Keys; shoes; bag; knickers; you name it.. nowhere to be found - so yup, life is definitely back to normal!

Time for the old brain exercises I'm thinking (well, at least I'm thinking!) and actually, I've reinstated one of the 'brain drains' we used to do at school on the last day of term, when the teacher couldn't think of anything else to keep us busy - and quiet.

The key word is PLANET and you have to get as many other words out of it as you can.
I think the record for this particular word is 92 other words - but there again, that does seem rather a lot - I can only see about 10 at first glance!

Come on then brain - here we go!

P L A N E T.
plan; plant; plane; pan; pane; pen; pat; pet; plate; peat; pleat; pal; pale; pelt; petal; - is that all the P's?

L... yawn ... This is really draining. Just off for a quick cuppa and chocy bar (brain food) - carry on without me folks...!!

Well Geri - i got to 32 before stopping - but I am cooking dinner - a poor excuse I know but, after all my brain is a bit addled at the moment!!!

Tan, tap, tea, ten, tale...

is that all the L's?

I'll let someone else take up the challenge from there.

Do I get a choccie bar now too?

Lovely to see you back on the beat, Geri.

My brain has gone missing. If you see it anywhere, please send it back!

Kate ~ 32 is pretty good! Why is your brain addled at the moment? Hang on - I'm coming over to see what you've been up to...

Grannymar ~ I'll add your 'T's' to the list. I'm glad your hip is doing so well. Last time I peeked in on you, you were walking all over town!
(One yummy, virtual chocy bar on its way)!

Steph ~ How lovely to hear from you! How are you doing? Sounds as though those 6 'L's' (added to the list) have brain drained your brain down the drain!
Is it the amitriptyline still making you drowsy? I do so hope you feel a lot better soon.
Another yummy, virtual chocy bar, on its way!
