Double Feature

Today's forecast was for rain and as it was a precious week day off mum thought she would treat herself to a sleep in and a day at the cinema.   Her 08.30am sleep in was somewhat ruined by a middle aged lady 5am toilet visit, and a 6am cat biscuit barf on the carpet.  

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.

The Courier is a post war based on a true story spy thriller with Benedict Cumberbatch playing an English businessman duped into working with a Soviet spy.  Ladies at the cinema were telling us their stories about spending lockdown with Mr Cumberbatch and his family.  The movie was interesting, a 4/5 Sunday Night Masterpiece Theater Movie.

So mums tired and hopefully she'll get to sleep through the night tonight.

 Today was a sunshiney day and we tried to soak up the sunbeams as rainy Autumnal weather has been forecast for the days ahead.  Mums day off is tomorrow so she has made herself some plans and booked some tickets.  She'll fill you in on Tuesday.

Mum loved that there are some flashes of green out in the gardens on her walk home.  She worked today, and was glad to get home to see me.  I had my nose right up at the door, calling out to her as she arrived home.  Happiness.

As mum walked home she could see that the rain clouds were settling over the city.  A great afternoon to come home and sit with me on the bed.  As usual she says she was reading her book but we ended up napping together.  Perfect!!

Home Grown

 The neighbors tomatoes are getting nice and big.  We guess since they are growing on our side of the fence they're ours now.  Just waiting for them to turn red.

 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 feels better today - thank you for the well wishes.  She stayed home and relaxed with me all day.  Us girls are good at that.  Mum appreciates a sleep in that allows her to wake up after 8am.

 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.

Day Off

 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.
