Quiet weekend here.
We stayed home mainly and did stuff.
Went out on Saturday night with the Czech/Japanese couple - both of us got a bit too drunk. I remember reeling home with handfulls of chocolate from the late night supermarket.
Slept until 9 am Sunday.
Watched videos, read the paper, thought about doing-something-about-Xmas...and then didn't.
Took the cat to the vets for his second pill-popping, and I tackled the icky topic of sample collecting for a large intestine cancer check....cos when I took along samples in empty jamjars last week the nurse at the hospital was pretty shocked!!! Apparently you DON'T DIY. You take samples using little tubes and sticks they give you.
Anyway. Quiet weekend. Housework.
Great recipe for sweet potato cake from the Internet, added in some blueberries.
Okaasan went out for a short walk late afternoon, in the dark and cold - both days. Sat and watched TV, slept.
Sunday lunchtime she wasn't great. Something just...off.
She looked terrible, her eyes were all squinty and tired. She just about followed our conversation. Sat silently eating.
Watching her do stuff around the kitchen I was aware of a slowness about it all, getting up and fetching the salt pot. Struggling to open it. Adding two spoons of salt, and about to do a third. Slowly going to get the tea cup and tea powder....standing for a moment at the cupboard looking at the shelves.
She seemed to be moving and thinking through treacle.
By dinner time she was ok again. We had the cook-on-the-table-nabe and she was standing up and down fishing stuff out of it. Eating loads.
But that lunchtime mood...oh...not a good sign....
