Mum still managed to get herself up and ready and had time to visit a couple of shops and the market on the way to the cinema to pick up a roll and an apple. She saw The Father first. A somewhat grim movie about a fathers struggle with memory loss. Olivia Coleman is always a delight, and Anthony Hopkins is just perfect in the title role being so talented at playing the charming and bewildered father whose life is swirling around him. I did manage to nod off several times so its a 3.5/5 from me.
So mums tired and hopefully she'll get to sleep through the night tonight.

It was crisp and the stars were out tonight. Mum surprised herself with this shot, they're normally so blurry. It was hard for mum to listen to the 6.30am alarm this morning. So she ignored it until 7.15 am, and then she had to get up and hustle to get to work. Luckily she got there 10 minutes early.

Mum was home late last night after another shift. It poured with rain nonstop until this afternoon when it suddenly cleared up with blue skies.
So after work this afternoon mum stopped by the library and then braced herself for supermarket shopping. People were tense, its a four day Easter break here with shops closed on Friday and Sunday, so everyone was Armageddon shopping. Mum got herself lots of tasty fruit and vegetables, eggs and bagels already for the weekend ahead.
Alas as the afternoon has progressed, she has a cough developing so any plans for fun stuff may need to be canceled. She can play with me instead. She is not sure if this is related to the pfizer vaccination she had on Monday, and will wait until tomorrow to see if she is getting worse and needs to ring her doctor and get a Covid test.

Its been raining off and on all day today. Luckily the little tomato that are sneaking between gaps in the fence will not need watering and might be ripe by the weekend.
Mum got the pfizer vaccine yesterday. She feels fine today, her arm still aches liked she's been punched but that's it. Today mum decided to stay home with me and did some dishes and hovered. Book reading and TV watching was all she felt like doing today.
Me - well I got up at 11am. Begged for dinner at 3pm and back to bed by 4pm.

After a sunny weekend, mums day off was rainy. Still she got herself a sleep in and then got herself up and ready as it was an important day. She got ger first covid vaccine. It was nice and quick and she caught up with some colleagues before and after. Her arm is a little sore tonight so she has taken an ibuprofen. She'll have an early night as she is tired after a few shifts, her body clock is a bit out of whack.
