I've had a couple of phone calls from Mum this week and although they've only been for a few minutes hearing her voice again is lovely, especially as we had a little giggle together. Occasionally, when the drugs kick in she can't think of the right word for something and on the first call she told me the buffalo doctor had been to see her. She actually meant the bone doctor and although she knows she's said it wrong, she can't get the right word out which makes her laugh, which then sets me off. Given the circumstances, it's so good to hear her chuckling. Anyway, that one was pretty easy to guess but there are some I just can't fathom out, and the more suggestions I make the more she laughs at my attempts, saying 'no, no, the other word'. On the second phone call she told me there were fairy flies on the ward but no matter how many words I tried, I couldn't get to the bottom of that one.
I've been keeping busy in the house, doing all the usual things that need doing. And we've also done the annual garden make over. I just need to buy plants for the pots but that will be in a few weeks as we're still at risk of frost so there's no point doing it just yet.
I've discovered I can get creative with my photos in a fairly easy fashion. I suspect I've been able to do this for years, but only realised at the weekend! Not sure if it will work but I'm giving it a go. Hope you've all had a good day. xx
