Mum was glad when work was over last night. She was super tired, but managed to head home with some groceries, feed me my feast, put the heater on and collapsed onto the couch. She slept well, until her body clock woke her up at 6am. I was snuggled in next to her as it was a cold night and frosty morning. She read her book and listened to the radio til 8am and then got herself up.
Some chores were done, the dishes that had piled up and some washing that needed to be done. The sun was out and so sheets were draped on the line for a couple of hours. Mum then thought she should go for a walk. She headed into town off to the library where she pottered round and then decided she had time for the cinema. So she went to the lighthouse cinema in town which was deserted. In fact in the whole theater there were mum and two others, one of which was a lady that laughed very loudly throughout the movie. She saw Love and Friendship, the story based on a Jane Austen novella. Mum does enjoy a good costume drama, but found this one dragged a bit and although all the actors looked good she didn't really enjoy it. It could also be that she was tired and kept nodding off.
Mum then thought she should make the most of the sunshine and walk home. It is only a 15 minute walk, but half of it was uphill, but she felt better once she got home. She cooked herself a chicken and broccoli pasta dish and I took myself to bed real early and haven't asked for my feast yet. Mum is sure I will wake up soon and realize I am hungry.
So mum enjoyed her day off - in fact she has the next 3 Mondays off, so she has some things planned for all of them. Hope you all had a good day too.
