Mum was working in the garden today. I could see her through the kitchen window – it looked nice and sunny out and she had taken off her jumper. She was there for a long while, pulling strawberry plants apart and replanting them. And weeding, and pulling out other things that had been big and bushy in summer.
When she was tidying up and getting ready to come in, I called out “Hello Cocky” to her and she answered! It was a nice day. And with the fire going, warm inside as well as out.
PS Lady is still here - no Fluffy Bum yet.
