Today was mums day off - or as she likes to think of it Monday Middle Aged Ladyday. Because she worked all weekend, she decided that she would head out to town, after a little lie in and finishing reading her book. A few chores were done at home, washing, drying, folding and gardening. A quick shower, and then mum headed off. First stop was at the market to get some olive oil. She likes this brand Two Short Dogs. So she got the plain oil and the lemon infused stuff. Yumm - for her.
Nest stop was lady shopping. She liked the look of the necklace first, nice resin beads that will go with the winter clothes. Two new scarves as well, nice snuggly acrylic, one in mustard and the other in a grey with gold flecks. Mum has a few black scarves from the past few years, so these will be nice additions.
Then mum went to Sweet Mamas Kitchen, a Wellington institution had a tasty Chicken Buritto. MMM mm.
Last stop on the whirlwind tour, was to go and see Hyde Park on Hudson at the movies. Mum enjoyed it 4/5, and kept her middle aged lady status by taking in a few boiled sweets. Go mum!!!
So home now. She has put the last load in the dryer,loaded the dishwasher, mowed the lawn and swept the kitchen floor. She has fed me my fancy feast, and is going to do sausages and mash for her dinner. She is watching some more Game of Thrones (season 2) on the DVD and relaxing and it is still only 4pm.
