Garden Helper





Mum spent the day at home again today.  She felt full of flu and spent the morning in bed til lunchtime.  This afternoon she got up to shower and I helped her quickly in the garden, inspecting the garden beds to tell her which ones to water.  Her headache and stuffiness forced her onto the couch and she put her feet up and watched some television.  She made avocado and tomatoes on toast for her lunch and put some fish in the oven for her dinner, with a tasty parmesan and bread crumb crust on top.  The pity was that she was unable to taste much of it.  She is trying to make an effort to decrease her sugar intake/processed food and increase her vegetable intake.  Hopefully there will be lots to get at the local food market tomorrow.

She had been looking forward to going and see some friends this evening, but she didn't want to give anybody else these germs.  She does have a couple of jobs to get done on Caturday so will try and get an early night tonight and not sleep in too long tomorrow.

Hope you all have had a lovely Friday too.

  5. I thought you were jumping up to use the raised bed as a litter box Poppy. That is what Eric used to do and mum had to put netting around it to keep him off. You were good though and jumped off the other side. I hope your mum soon feels better.

  6. Love the photo of you just jumping up! Hope your poor mum gets better soon. Mum is trying to cut back on sugar too. Pity because she loves baking. I just like my meat. Meow, Jessica
