I only got to sit out on my bench for a little while after work, cos it sure was windy. After lots of rain yesterday the wind is howling up the valleys and whipping itself round. Mum had the feeling she shouldn't go to work today, to stay home and stay in bed and read her book. However she is not one to wag work, cos karma has a way of kicking her in the butt if she does that and makes her poorly soon after, and then she would feel to guilty to call in sick. So she sucks it in and goes off to work.
On the way to work, as she stood at the crossing waiting for the lights to change, she felt an earthquake ripple through the ground underneath. Not too strong, and it was based a long way away from us, but enough for her to notice. Work was ok, she made it through and got to come home to me.
I only sat outside quickly then rushed inside to beg for my dinner. She gave me a feast, and then made herself some lemon chicken and rice for dinner. She listened to Tom Hanks on BBC Desert Island Discs, another great interview that usually manages to make mum smile. So time for some relaxing before she switches the call phone on at 10 am. Wish her luck!!
