Mum went to work today and stayed all day - so that was progress. She did get told to go home approximately 6 times, but that is because her sore throat makes her sound like she is more poorly than she feels. She did come home though and had some soup and toast. Us girls then had a sleep which was good, as mum is on call tonight and she feels better now that she has had some rest. As she gets older she can appreciate that she would like my pussy cat life, that she could snooze all the time and stay home - she thinks retirement might suit her. A pity that it is a few years away.
