Well, we never managed to take Mum outside as we planned today. She didn’t have a good damallard2y, was too poorly, so instead we moved her bed to the window so she could see out properly when the vertical blinds were pulled open. We were fortunate that a Mallard duck was waddling along the grass just outside the window and calling out to its friends still over at the village pond. The weather had been quite beautiful with the spring sunshine and the slight rustling of the breeze. Mum nodded briefly with a faint smile as she caught sight of the blue sky and then quietly went back to sleep.

So I am thankful for the sun showing itself today and for the appearance of the rather majestic looking drake just as I had ordered yesterday with my wish for Mum.
