Mum had been dreaming of eating some porridge - which is a good sign. She only managed a couple of dessert spoons but, at lunch time, followed that up with a little plain fish so that's a good sign. Mind you I think that I managed to cremate the fish - quite an achievement when you consider that the fish was being steamed in the microwave! However it was good to see Mum regaining her strength - we even managed to go through the presents, wrap the last few up and sort everything out.
This afternoon I decamped into the kitchen to sew the mouse. As you can see he is getting there and should be completed by tonight. ( I had run out of stuffing so needed to pinch some of mum's). Why the kitchen? Well - as my parents watched Mary Poppins ( that was the first film that I can remember going to the pictures to watch when I was around 4 years old - I remember my brother and I looking in a bed sales room window and picking out a pink and blue blanket each!) - I wanted to watch Downton Abbey from Christmas Day on catch up. Sadly I already knew the ending from the newspaper but it was good to see such a wonderful series finish so positively.
Tonight - well it's finish Mr Mouse of course, and Dad has "ordered" Shepherds Pie for dinner but then it's back to the EPP tablecloth- again!
