Here I was enjoying a day alone after John decided to have a day out to Liverpool on the trains so he can take some photos of the stations. I was unpacking a box from the other house that I had not yet unpacked when I decided to ring my mother to ask if she was alright.
She has been having a few aches and pains over the last few days. After consulting the internet she decided that she needed to have more fruit in her diet. I noticed when I took her to the supermarket last Friday that she bought some blueberries and raspberries. This was my conversation with her today.
Me: Hello Mum, how are you feeling today
Mum: I am feeling alright
Me: what no aches and pains today?
Mum: No, not bad at all today
Me: That’s good then.
Mum: I found that blender that I bought in the top of my wardrobe this morning, that one that you borrowed from me.
Me: Oh yeah, when I was going through my making butternut squash soup phase, then you decided you wanted it back and bought me a handheld cheap blender
Mum: Hmm, well I’ve never used it before and I thought this morning I would have a go with it.
Me: Good idea, you can make lovely soup with that blender
Mum: There are lots of pieces to it, different size jug things.
Me: yes they all click together then attach to the base
Mum: There were no instructions in the box I just looked at the pictures on the box.
Me: Oh yes
Mum: I fixed it together using just the little jug thing and put some water in the bottom
Me: thinking I know what’s coming next, I began to tremble with inner laughter
Mum: Well I switched it on , water flew out all over the kitchen, it was even in the drawer where I keep my tablets, the boxes are all damp now. I even had to get the mop and bucket out, you have never seen such a mess, I was wet through, my hair has gone frizzy and I had to change my blouse.
Me: openly shaking with laughter now.
Mum: There was no bottom in the jug the sharp things flew round and the water sprayed round the kitchen
Me: They all click together and then attach to the base, lucky for you that you did not put any fruit in
Mum: Silent for a moment then said, I did, I put a handful of raspberries in the water, they flew out too. You have never seen such a mess in all your life. Raspberries are hard to wipe up when they are part crushed. I was trying to make one of those drink things.
Me: Laughing hysterically, you mean a smoothy
Mum: it was not smooth at all.
Me: You can get recipes from the internet to make a smoothy, I don’t think it is just water and fruit though.
Mum: I am not making anything else with this thing, its absolute rubbish.
Me: Well if you want I will give you the hand blender it’s easier to use
Mum: Yes and you can have this thing back if you want it
Me: Yes please, that would be great
Mum: Anyway i need to get on now I’ve spotted a few raspberry bits on the wall that I need to get off before they dry anymore…….. Goodbye.
