Yesterday mum got herself out for a walk for 2hours to get some groceries. She got home just before the bad cold weather arrived. So last night the heater was on and there was a lot of snuggling on the bed, she woke up overnight to find me planted beside her to keep her warm.
She headed back to work today, but she was tired after work and will be having an early night. She made a good warm meal with enough for leftovers for tomorrow nights dinner. Some nice pork sausages with green beans and a carrot/parsnip/swede mash. 20 minutes of cooking.
She has got all the meals organised for the rest of the week - roast chicken/sweet potatoes/green beans/ carrots, meatballs +rice/salad , bacon + mozzarella quiche with salad. For lunch mum will make pastrami and salad sandwiches and an orange for the first half of the week and switch to chicken when the pastrami runs out.
Me - I am simple. One feast a day and some biscuits to graze on.
Oh and thank you all for reassuring mum that she did the correct thing at the weekend by staying in bed at 1.30am. She didn't bring out her gun - she would never own one of them. She didn't feel the need to call the police, she didn't feel threatened.
