Mum had a day off today. The news keeps saying an Aussie heatwave was coming our way, but it wasn't too bad here today. Mum had booked a seat to see Green Book at the local cinema. When she got there she was the only customer, so she had her choice of seats. It was lovely and air conditioned and she wasn't lonely as eventually she was joined by another two ladies.
She enjoyed the movie. A based on a true story about Tony, an Italian guy from the Bronx who takes a job to drive Dr Shirley, an African American pianist through the South in 1962. Not just a story about race, it is a story about friendship and understanding and was able to balance the drama and humour in a masterful way.
Mum then got some dumplings for lunch. She was a bit disappointed as they were tasteless and her tummy didn't appreciate them. So she came back and spent the afternoon with me and we chilled out together.
