A phone call in the night informed us Mum was in hospital. This morning she is back at Oakside and recovering in her room. Things are improving in many ways.
I have returned the clothing that did not fit myself, Bella, Hetty and Herbie's duplicates. So many mistaken double buys just shows my enthusiasm with the 'add to basket' button.
Weald of Kent Art Society had a great talk this afternoon by Sue Scullard. A lady of intricate patience. She demonstrated inking and printing a couple of boxwood woodcuts. They are tiny and beautiful. A very inspiring couple of hours.
We popped over to Si and Lesley's, along with Nick, Alli, June, Barry, Nick and Suzy, for a pre cinema pasta and lasagna (two ways) and pizza (many ways) and salads and garlic bread and fruit salad before heading to the Odeon. The Mercy I found to be a rather heart squeezing film about a man's failure to circumnavigate the globe in his homemade sailing boat. Being based on a true story makes it even more painful. Colin Firth was surprisingly attractive. Jamie Pope played his part with gusto.
