The mumster was pleased to have a little sleep in this morning with me. She dug some things out of storage and found her gloves, which was good as it was a windy wet day. She visited a new hair salon to make an appointment, and her old hairdresser was working there, so she is due on Friday morning to get her hair all sparkly and new again!!
As the afternoon was nasty, mum headed to the movies to see The Invisible Woman, a movie about Charles Dickens and his secret mistress. It is possibly mums favourite type of drama, a historical drama with lots of hoop skirts and pretty bonnets. She likes it when the characters looked lived in, where their hair and makeup seems to fit with the times, rather than been Hollywoodised and they are too picture perfect. It was a very slow movie, but mum and the other four in the cinema enjoyed it. She went to the local arthouse cinema that has comfortable couches and cushions, a perfect way to spend a wild wet afternoon off.
Once a couple of chores were done - isn't going to the post office tedious - mum got home to make Nasi Goreng, an Indonesian Fried Rice dish for her dinner, and she has lots of yummy leftovers for the next couple of evenings. Dishes were done, family phoned up and now she is going to settle down and watch some Greys Anatomy. Me - I'm snoozing in the bedroom ready for bed.
