Mum heads back home tomorrow so we're just hanging out here and enjoying each other's company. I'm going to miss having her around but she'll be back for Christmas and I know the rest of the family are missing her so it's time. Thankfully the chemo hasn't wiped me out quite as much this week although I am tiring quickly and the brain is a bit hit and miss, so things are being picked up and put down and I've not finished a lot of things I've started but that's ok. In a change from last round I do at least seem to be able to read so that's good.
Fortunately the weather has been kind today so our trip to the hospital for my blood test was a pleasant one and I managed to get a couple of snaps of the flowers out the front. The birds are obviously feeling the change in temperatures as the table food is almost empty and we've spotted the odd robin, blackbird and chirping sparrow in the hedge as well as the ubiquitous wood pigeons.
