Miss I's Grandma's birthday
« on: May 05, 2018, 08:21:01 PM »
Three years ago on May 9th Miss I was cross with herself. Her Grandma's birthday is May 8th, but every year she forgets it and has to call on the 9th to apologise.

For some reason, I have retained the information and, as we run up to May 8th, I send her a series of reminders.

Each day she replies, saying thanks but that she will still forget it   Banghead Banghead Banghead

I can barely recall my sisters' birthdays, so why am I forever doomed to recall the birthday of someone I have never met?? Banghead Banghead Banghead

I can still remember the phone numbers of friends from 50+ years ago.
This is in neat contrast with the fact that I frequently can't recall their names. redface:
