We finally got a glimpse of sunshine this afternoon, and mum rushed out and put washing on the line after days of rain.  She did some housework this evening  before a big meal of Christmas leftovers - yumm.

Mum worked again today on Boxing Day which is a public holiday today.  Two more days of work and then mum gets to relax.   

Mum got a big bruise on her leg and doesn't remember how she got it.  Probably from running into something at work.  That makes her feel old when things like that happen.  A glimpse of her future.


  1. Public holiday over here to Poppy!x
    I've just popped out for a coffee at Costa..
    I was home all day yesterday, phoned my daughter
    last night, so, they'll be down on Friday, she's
    bringing both dogs this of them..Zeeva,
    she enjoys coming down, well she's a bit of a 'tart'
    HeHe! The other one Nushka, is just noisy! Still,
    loads of food, lots of out and abouts, wonder if
    l've got any money..Bless!x

  2. My momma is always bruising herself and not knowing how it happened.

  3. Mum gets bruises too, usually from running into the furniture.

  4. Poppy, my human has ALWAYS gotten bruises running into things, even when she was in her 20s. She has one on her leg now as I type!

  5. I usually get scrapes and cuts, rather than bruises. I don't know why the preference... If they are on my hands or arms, the scratches are probably from playing with the cats. They are merely reminders to cut their claws. But I do find I am banging into things and dropping them more often, as if my judgement is off by an eighth of an inch in everything. Growing older, indeed...
