The Day Started So Well

   The day started so well. Tom and I went to the farm to get food for the hens and ducks and I took some photos of the alpacas in the field. It was such a lovely day but very cold we stood watching them for a while. We talked about how when Tom retires we would love to move down a bit to the countryside in Kent or Sussex and have walks like this on our doorstep everyday. We came home cheerful and chatty only to be met with a phone call from my poor Dad saying my Mum wasn't well.
   My spending time in hospital bag was got ready (phone charger, banana, bottle of water) I am very well practiced at this. The G.P. came to see my Mum but she was adamant she didn't want to go into hospital again. The doctor decided to refer her for tests. As we left my Mum said "Now you look after yourselves." Typically thinking of others all the time.




I've looked at the photos again this evening but I can't quite recapture the pleasure from this morning. Every little noise I think is going to be the phone ringing. On the bright side the day is nearly over and all seems well. Fingers crossed tomorrow will be a bit better.

  2. Sending special thoughts for a speedy recovery to your Mum♥ Your Mum is so thoughtful thinking of others when feeling unwell herself. Love the photos we have a two alpacas close by and it's always a thrill to see them as I drive past. Too hot at the moment to walk anywhere:( Linda xx
