Overweight wobbling along I went to my Slimming World weigh in. Did I appear overeager arriving fifteen minutes early – probably but I wanted to see the results of my lettuce week? Would I be able to see my size three feet that disappeared years ago? Such excitement which subsequently needs an answer to. I can’t wait, hang on I know – but you don’t! On with the show then.
My teen children think that all the time of me! I leave my keys in the same place, and when looking for them, they have disappeared! Or my phone goes missing, and I have to get a responsible adult/teen to ring my number to find it.
Have you noticed those missing socks trying to find their partner, gloves that have wondered off into the sunset and names or words that refuse to jump off your tongue – sound familiar?
You are wondering now what this has to do with a book review. It has plenty to do with the book that I am reviewing. Madness or Sanity that is the plot.
“Who are you?” my father-in-law quizzed as I prevented his pathway out of the front door. “You can’t keep me here you know, all Polish Officers are charged with the duty of escaping if caught” – this will always be a painful memory for me.
“Dad, you are not in a POW camp now – the war is long over, you are safe.”
“I know you’re a German in disguise; you can’t fool me.” He retreated upstairs to his granddad annexe, muttering to himself how silly he had been to get caught.
Each day we, as a family had to deal with this dilemma. It was exhausting for us and frustrating for dad. Reading None So Blind therefore has been interesting to read as it deals with the issues of memory loss.
