Mum is feeling better after a few nights of forced bedtimes.  She finds now if she heads to bed at 11pm, she cannot read longer than a half hour, so her lights are usually out by 11.30pm.  As she didn't have to be up early this morning, she left the alarm off, and awoke at 8.30am , giving her a great sleep and a longer day to enjoy before she heads to work.

So mum got up and got the washing machine humming.  Although the sun was out earlier, by the afternoon the clouds are gathering and it is cooling down, but the towels and sheets are almost dry which is great.  I got to go out and explore the garden with mum and follow her around the house as I like to be close to where she is if she is home.

The curls have washed out of her hair and she looks back to normal again.  Which is good as mum is on call at the weekend, and doesn't have time to fuss about.  When the phone rings, it is clothes and shoes on, a quick brush of the hair and teeth brushed and grab the keys and head off to work.

Hope you have a lovely Friday everybody and have a better night than mum at work.


  1. Ah! Poor Mum...Poppy!x
    Though l must say she always sounds very
    organised, and ready for work and life in

    We've got the sun out over here...Last day, as
    rain is forecast for the weekend. Still, it's been
    a nice week, as it's the first one of Autumn..!

  2. It has been a 'short' week here, due to the Labour Day holiday on Monday, but the short ones feel long - perhaps because we keep thinking they should feel short. I hope you and your mum's weekend is good.
