I’d like to think I am a very organized person, almost to the point of obsession. I am a ” list-aholic” and all my domestic paperwork is stored neatly and in date oder in ring binder folders – I even wear my clothes in strict rotation and keep them in my cupboards on colour co-ordinated hangers ! You will rarely find me charging around my house like a headless chicken searching for my car-keys or my mobile phone – “everything in its place and a place for everything” I believe is the saying and I live by those words.
However … (you knew there was a “however” coming , didn’t you ?!) recently I was thrown completely off-track when I popped into Asda quickly to pick up something I’d run out of ahead of my bi-weekly shop, went to pull my bank card out of my pocket and it wasn’t there. The unthinkable had happened ! It should be there … it’s always there … I never put it anywhere else ! Luckily, I have another card I can use, just in case, but before I’d even got back to the car, my head was spinning. How ? Where ? Why ?
So, I mentally traced my steps back to when I’d last used it and after making carefully thought out checks of places where it might possibly be at home, I then realized that it was really hot when I’d last used it, picking up two ice creams for A13 Annie on a day out and there was an element of ‘rush’ about getting them back to the car and eaten before they started melting. Sure enough, in my haste to devour our Magnums (other chocolate covered ice cream brands are available …) the card had slipped out of my pocket and down between the car seats. Probem solved ! I blame it on the heat ….
Thankfully, it hasn’t been quite as warm over the last two weeks, ideal weather for both preparing and enjoying two hours of top quality soul tunes, just like these ones which you can hear on the ‘Repeat Play’ this saturday at 5pm on Gateway or via the ‘Listen Again’ page – just hunt out ‘Cool Soul’ …
