Brilliant day with Mum, we sat in the sunshine and chatted, had tea and cake and it was wonderful just to spend time with her.
Then went down to the sea for an evening picnic and even managed to have a second paddle in the sea, though much colder than the Med. But the evening light was golden, the beach full of children, families, walkers enjoying the sunshine. W stayed until well after sunset, reluctant to leave.
This morning I arrive to find Mum still in bed and dozing. Each day is different and our time together yesterday has tired her. But she is cheerfully in bd and half watching telly. She dozes and each time she wakes, she’s forgotten I’m there and is delighted to see me all over again.
As ever it will be hard to leave her this afternoon.
