Mum got sucked into looking at the internet to the wee hours last night, and woke up early as it was a lovely morning. The landlord came round and pulled apart the table and benches that were rotten, did some gardening and took the rubbish to the dump. Mum has realized now that I have nothing to jump out of the window onto, so might have to buy something for me otherwise my escape route has gone.
As she was up early she went to the supermarket to get some chicken/mince/bacon and vegetables for the freezer. People were looking a bit tense but the shelves were full looking. She is feeling confident now that there is not much else she could run out of.
We had a nap before dinner. Our nights are cooling quickly and it is dark early. Autumn is now underway - we hope that our friends in the Northern Hemisphere are feeling signs of spring.
