At the bus stop

at the bus stop

Kate and I spent the morning with Dad while Mum was at one of her gardening jobs.
Yes my mother is almost 80 and she still does other people's gardens. 
She does the gardens of people who are in the early 50s but can't find the time to keep their gardens tidy. 
She is a very hard worker and I think she enjoys the work but I also think she does too much.

When Mum got home we  all had morning tea together then  Kate and I went into town to get her some new sports shoes. 
Can you believe the very first pair she tried on not only were a perfect fit but also super comfortable and just right!!!
And they were on sale at 30% off. 

We had a bit of a mosey around and then came home, got the fire alight and I set about tidying my work area.

Dosen't it feel great when the place where you create has space for you to actually get something done.
It's so inviting.

So I think it is forecast for a wet weekend. 
We will be doing plenty of cosying
and reading by the fire
and watching old movies 
and knitting 
and sewing 
and cooking 
and eating 
and darting around on the computer 
and cuddling cats who become supercuddly when the weather gets bleak 
and  probably quite a bit of just hanging around.
