It is good to hear that I'm not the only one forgetting things though!

I think you tick most of the boxes but there is still a little way to go.
Ask her for a blackberry for xmas and load it on.

E.g this morning I was a bit slower getting ready and had woken a bit late. I thought i was ready and had gone outside and was about to get on the bike, then realized I had no water. That would have been bad considering it's supposed to be 30+ today in perth!

The more you ride, the better it will feel.
Back on topic, I took a leaf out of ft_critical's book and put together a checklist. I tried it out the other day, and it really helped! I found that I wasn't stressing so much about getting things done in time or forgetting something. Every time I started getting wound up about forgetting something, I'd consult the checklist. And had it not been for that list, there were a couple things I would've forgotten about. So it's already proven its worth. I guess it's obvious, now, huh?
I've put together different checklists based on my destination. My regular commute to work doesn't require me to carry toiletries, change of clothes, shoes etc whilst my commute to town does. It seems obvious, but I am the sort of twit who would otherwise forget something important. Like, y'know, a change of clothes. Can you imagine turning up to a presentation wearing cycling gear? Oh, yeh, HOT STUFF!!!
