When you forget the first 3 of the 6 digit passcode you have been using for years, and years, to access your online banking.  Might be due to this new fangled fingerprint touch validation tech, don't log in the old school way that much any more.

The number came back... for now...

having been off for three weeks, I struggled to remember the PIN to my company credit card when refuelling the hire car this lunchtime

When you forget the cunning mnemonic you invented to remind you of your PIN but do remember the PIN itself.

When something as trivial as a cold knocks you onto your arse for nearly 2 weeks.  I had to get something from town yesterday. Just walking a couple of miles had me soaked in sweat.  I’ve got to go again today, so have just had a shower, that tired me sufficiently that I felt like a rest  :facepalm:

That's probably the flu though, not a cold. I'm still zonked over a week later (and a tiresome hypersensitive throat) and mostly doing stuff takes a lot more effort than it should. I forced myself to do sixty lengths in the pool earlier and I could have taken a nice long nap in the changing room afterwards. Must be sleeping about 9-10 hours a night too, and peculiar dreams that I mostly don't remember because I never remember my dreams but I was very concerned yesterday about the two dead bodies in our living room and the need to do something about them. This worry lasted till half-way through my shower when it occurred to me that there weren't any dead bodies in my living room.

 ???  I had a flu jab late last year.  Temperature has been mostly OK, no aching, just fatigue, lassitude & coughing up sufficient grot to have a special glass to spit it out into,  that only seems to be mornings though.  Appetite is mostly OK.     I'm going to have to venture out to the Co-op again,  I've run out of whisky  :(

Flu jabs are strain-specific, they make an educated guess as to the ones in play during the season, the vaccination isn't a guarantee (and sometimes you'll still get it, but the symptoms will be lessened).

That said, there are lots of viruses and the majority aren't necessarily easily classifiable.

When carrying a load of shopping from M&S in a courier bag,  up the hill to the flat _hurts_.     I'm starting to contemplate a wheelie trolley  :facepalm:

So, it was a couple weeks ago, right in the middle of that shot hot spell and I was driving into town. On the pavement we four teens wearing, shall we say, skimpy summer attire. In the cycle path next to them was a bloke riding a really nice Burgundy coloured Brompton. I thought, nice bike!

Not just middle aged but ..........

It's a clumsy thing to drag around & keeps catching my right heel.  It took all the stuff from yesterdays visits to Tesco, M&S and Aldi,  but I still had to drag it up the hill.  The stair climbing bit works well though.
