Apropos of my blogging about leaving three items I'd paid for at a car boot sale Ragged Roses tells of actually leaving her car behind after a car boot and only realising the next day! This prompted me to ask 'What is the funniest story you have about forgetting something?' I once forgot I'd left my dog tied up outside a shop till one and a half hours later the shop telephoned me to ask me to collect him. When I told this story to someone they 'black catted' me by saying they had actually left their baby in a pram outside a shop (in the days when this was quite normal practice) whilst they walked home!

How could I have forgotten little Geordie, sadly no longer with us?

  1. Hi Ruth

    When Hannah was a baby Mum was living with us for a while and I went out in the car to do various things, stopping off at the village shop on the way home. When I came out of the shop Hannah wasn't in the car so I raced back into the shop, ran out again, looked up and down the lane and generally panicked. Until I realised that I had gone out on my own and Mum had been at home looking after Han!

  2. You're story about Geordie and Sue's about Hannah are making me feel slightly less dotty!

  4. Hi Ruth
    Just to let you know that I'm definitely a "skimmer" at car boots, just flit from one stall to another. And agree with you totally about the man/eiderdown thing, the beauty is lost on them (and the need!)

  5. Oh how could you have ever left Geordie?
    A friend of mine once forgot to take her toddler out of the pushcharir before she tried to fold it up and put it in the car!

  6. You must have been very busy to have forgotten your sweet Geordie. He is a precious little one...bless his soul.
