Sadly today we had to say goodbye to our potted flowers. They survived four months at home, but sadly succumbed to the summer drought of 2019. Mum and I had a sleep in which was lovely as the city was covered in cloud and a light drizzle, that will hopefully help the rest of the garden. By the early afternoon the cloud had cleared so mum went out for a walk. She had to go to the post office which made her feel very old fashioned, as our city has closed them all down in the past year and seems to have thought that putting a desk up in a local book shop or convenience store is the same. She feels for old people set in their ways that must struggle with all of the modern changes, especially as they often don't do internet banking or pay their bills online.
Anyway mum felt good as she had some clothes and boots to return for a refund, which will help put some money back into her pocket. She got a couple of groceries and headed home. The evening has passed quickly, and although mum wanted an early night, the neighbors are entertaining with some loud tunes. Mum thinks she might not be quiet at 6.30am as she leaves for work in the morning. So I will need a big long snooze on Caturday to catch up on my zzzzzs.
