So no need to go out and water the garden this weekend, it has continued to pour with rain here, a good mid summer pour down. We are sure the farmers in the region will be pleased, as the pastures have all been rather dry and words like drought have been floated about for some weeks.
The mumster awoke early at 8ish, but it was so grey and miserable outside she came back to bed and snuggled with me and read her book for a few hours, quite a pleasure. She then got up and made some chicken and salad rolls for her lunch, a bit more book reading and mum got a few episodes of Downton Abbey watched. Some beef and potato salad for her lunch, and a feast for me. Quite civilized. This evening was taken up with phone calls to family, then an episode of Downton before bed. How swanky!! Mum loves that lady Edith gets to have a romance, and that Mr and Mrs Carson get married.
Mum has been pleased to be able to relax this weekend and enjoy some simple pleasures - good books, tasty food and quality shows - and me!!!
