Caturday is upon us again, and here in the depths of the south pacific it is almost over for another week. The mumster and I slept in this morning, which was a shame as the sun was shining down. She had a leisurely brunch and did some clothes washing and pottering, while I caught the rays out in the garden. Mum then ventured out at 1pm, thinking she should have put her light trousers and sandals on. Luckily she didn't because by the time she had got across town there was a whole lot of grey clouds gathering and a large hail storm started. She was happy that she had made it inside by this stage, and was sheltered from the worst of it.
So it was nice when she met a bestie for a movie. They saw Gone Girl and quite enjoyed it, although they did wonder at what most of the pensioners in the audience thought of it (it was the 2.45pm session). Both the lead actors were good and even though mum had read the book, she had forgotten a lot of the story so for her it still felt fresh and surprising.
After the movie, mum and the bestied dashed along to a little Thai place for dinner. it is uber popular due to it;s lovely fresh food and family run atmosphere. There was already a line formed outside, so they were lucky to be able to nab a table and enjoy their Fresh Chicken noodle dinner. All done by 6.30pm hahaha. mum is not embarassed by her middle aged ladiness and being home by 7pm.
Me, well I was glad to see her when she got home and even managed several 2 minute lap cuddles (she says it could just be that it is cold out there).
