As usual, today was our big shop and after K had managed to prise herself out of bed and shower (at 9.00 am, all of three hours after me!) we donned our hats and coats, grabbed our usual assortment of shopping bags and then exited the flat.
Hmm, seems a trifle windy out here, thought I as we set off. What an understatement! At times it became hard to keep your feet, and I laughed when K said to me
“Here Mum, get hold of me, I’ll hold you down!” Seems that besides being a GP, an Actress and a Masseur, she is now taking on the role of Anchor woman as well!
So we were bowled down to Tesco’s (wind mainly behind us thank goodness!) and arrived there courtesy of the following wind in fairly good time and just before the rain began.
A quickish shop, where we also purchased the Blue Ray version of Wall E as a sort of après Christmas treat for both of us. On arrival at the ‘auto’ check out, K took the role of t Scanner and I was the packer, then a return home via taxi followed by another scanning session of all our purchases, K taking the role as she always does of assistant putter away and sider upper whilst I did the actual scanning.
Following that, I made the dinner and while I was dishing it out, K was informing me what she intended to have for her tea! She always does this! We hadn’t even sat down to eat as I was in the process of dishing up the chicken and vegetables when I heard the usual “I’m having some of that soup for my tea!”
“K, let’s get this eaten first!” replied I. It’s a wonder that she doesn’t inform me of her intended meals for the whole week! ( I had better not let her read this, or it might give her ideas!) Life for K is just one big lurch from one meal to the next!
The horrid wind seems to have died down somewhat this afternoon, its the next type of weather that I dislike besides rain. Mainly I suppose because when I was a young girl, it once lifted me off the ground and although I remember that I did manage to remain on my feet when it happened, ever since then I have not been terribly keen on having to be out in it when its really windy.
So that’s all for now folks, do keep reading and blogging won’t you?
