It was a beautiful day here in the city today. Mum filled the washing line, hovered the carpets and did the dishes all before 10am.
The supermarket delivery was booked for a 10- 12am slot, so it wasn't here until 12.15pm which isn't too bad. It costs $12 for a delivery under $200 and $9 for over. Similar to the cost of a taxi home from the supermarket. Mum normally buys small amounts after work, carrying her bags with her. With her bad back a delivery was a good idea and mum uses it as an opportunity to stock the cupboards and order heavy or awkward things like mega toilet rolls, bags of cat biscuits, big bottles of juice and washing powder.
Mum was unable to get a Drs appointment until late this afternoon and the Dr agrees that mum has sprained her back and has given her a couple of days off to rest. Mum has a new book to start and is starting on Call the Midwife she recorded earlier in the year.
We had another wee nap this afternoon - I am loving having mum home even if she gives me too many kisses and brushes.
