We were up early, and I mean early. Even the bird wasn’t awake so all worms were safe in their casts.
We’d packed everything and prepared as best we could the preceding day, which included foody treats for MOH and pressies for my Mum.
The plan was to drive straight to the nursing home, where Hubby would drop me off and then go and do some ‘Us’ shopping for Christmas in Poole. He then intended to take Maggie for a much needed walk in Hamworthy Park and give her some quality time having been cooped up in the car for so long.
It’s difficult buying for my Mum, especially now, so I’ve got her a few goodies and a couple of crossword books as I know she enjoys doing them. I’ve written a poem for Christmas again this year and I laminated it on some matching backing card in the kit I made her Christmas Card from. I posted that by recorded delivery as it’s a One -off just in case we didn’t get to see her because of the bad weather.
I have another unique gift for her though, and that is a sea shell I picked up some time ago.
We’ve given it a coat of varnish to preserve it, as we have the others I’ve found in various stages of decomposition.
This is the only one I have found complete, and my logic is if Mum can’t come to the beach we’ll take the beach to her.
