Mother's Day Disappointment
Dave is back home, thank goodness, and the dog walker is coming today. Yay! I have assistance! I called in sick, so I can finally have a day just to rest. My chest cold seems to be breaking up, but unfortunately that entails a lot of coughing, and my sinuses are being very...productive. No one wants me sitting at the front desk in the library today.
I took Olga back to the park yesterday, and basically just sat in the grass while she ran around and played. Then I came home and finished the book I was reading, "The Cuckoo's Calling," by Robert Galbraith (aka J. K. Rowling). I liked it a lot -- a kind of noirish murder mystery. I hope Rowling continues to write more adult fiction. I have not been disappointed yet.
We switched to British Summer Time (our Daylight Saving Time) yesterday. I didn't even realize it had happened until a neighbor told me that morning. It was also "Mothering Sunday," the British Mother's Day.
Last week I found this handmade Mother's Day card tucked into a fence near a school -- probably dropped by a child. I hope there weren't too many tears when the kid discovered she had lost Mummy's card.
