Mum says the panic is over - she finished reading The Passage, so if the world does end on Friday she knows what happened at the end. She did laugh at the end of the book, when the author was describing his daughter reading everywhere and anytime, she sounds a lot like mum. Mum read the book before she went to bed, in the morning drying her hair, while eating her breakfast, at morning tea, at lunchtime and got it finished at afternoon tea. Phew!!
She doesn't truly believe that the world will end at the end of the week. She has too much to do over the weekend, as well as being on call again. Never mind - come Christmas Eve, mums break will begin.
