Mum was lucky and got taken out to dinner with friends tonight to a fancy restaurant. Mum even dragged out her dress to wear. It is linen and was a bit rumpled. As she does not have an iron she used her hair straightener to make it presentable. She didn't tell her friends that - they would be horrified.
Mum had delicious lamb shanks for her dinner and I think the best cream brulee she has ever had. She will sleep well tonight.
Me - well I had a feast for dinner. it was delicious too.
