The food you wanted is in the house freezer though so you'll go out to the other freezer in your garage and rummage through that until you find something, coming back in you'll once again see the post on the hall table so when you've put the food somewhere to defrost you go back to it as you remember something about paying a bill, but you can't see it so dismiss it and go back to topping the water up in the flower vase. You decide to give them some new light and put them in the lounge when you realise the grass out the front is a bit long so you go back outside, get the mower out and cut the crass, then you realise the flower beds need weeding so you start about that. Then half way through you remember the washing in the machine will be finished so you go in and get that out to hang on the line but it's a bit late so you put it into the tumble dryer. You realise your dinner is nearly defrosted so you better start on that, so by the time you've cooked and eaten it's getting dark, you've missed your photo op, you're washing isn't dry, the bills aren't paid and the garden isn't done but you're knackered and wonder where the day went....
If in doubt just nod and smile !
