Life is returning to normal here in New Zealand. Mum got on a crowded bus and went out to a crowded cafe for lunch with a bestie, which was lovely with a fresh orange juice and a favorite chicken salad that mum has missed eating. It was delicious too and mum was glad that everyone was supporting the local cafes!
Mum then went to a crowded kmart. The shelves were quite bare, but the girls enjoyed just looking in a real shop. Mum bought just a shower curtain and a tshirt. They even went to the mall, somewhere they would normally avoid on a Saturday afternoon. After lockdown and the past few months without going to the shops it was nice to look around. Mum enjoyed all the nice duvets and clothes that were out for winter. It is not the same, looking online.
Mum must have seen 100s of people today, and only one person in a mask so people are quite calm about Covid now. We have been without a case here for 3 weeks.
I was glad to get her home. It was getting cold and I needed cuddles. Mums feet were sore and her shoulder was beginning to ache.
We hope you all have a nice Caturday too.
