You know your mum is tired when she gets out of the shower, rubs the moisturiser on her hands and then proceeds to put it on her hair instead of her face. The good thing was that she didn't have many plans yesterday, so it didn't matter if her hair was a bit goopy. Good on you mum. She can't decide whether she is more tired this time of year because it is winter, or is it just getting old?
Today she went and did a couple of chores and had a walk. It was a grey cloudy day, and it feels like the winter is settling in for a few weeks. Mum had to go and buy an extension cord so that she could plug the heater in in her bedroom, she hasn't had to use it yet but turned it on for an hour or two to test it out this evening. She is thinking though that once we have had a few more weeks of winter, mum is going to try and get out and take a few more walks, get some more exercise and fresh air.
Dinner was nice and easy for her and nice and tasty for me. Mum has been trying to catch up on her rest these past two days, as she has a big long stretch of seven days of work, and she knows she will be tired. So the pantry is stocked and she has already frozen a couple of meals for shifts over the weekend. She will make a big bacon pasta dish tomorrow, has some butter chicken and rice and veg in the freezer and lots of lovely soup. All good winter fare.
