I spoke to my mother this morning and she was a bit put out, our conversation went like this
Me: Hi Mum, how are you today
Mum: I’m not so bad
Me: Oh, that’s okay then
Mum: It’s very quiet up here
Me: That’s good isn’t it
Mum: Well you know I told you the new man had bought vertical blinds like mine
Mum: Well since he put them up at the weekend he has not opened them
Me: Is that bad
Mum: Well yes, I can’t see anything
Me: More like he can’t see anything, do you think he is living in the kitchen
Mum: He must be
Me: I can’t understand why people don’t open their blinds or curtains, I could not sit in a room without natural light coming in
Mum: It wouldn’t be too bad but the old lady next door to him has been taken in to hospital and her blinds are shut as well.
Me: Really, what happened
Mum: Well she is another one away with the fairies, in fact she is losing it by the day. She decided to walk up to the shop with the 95-year-old, you have never seen anything like it.
Mum: They were holding hands
Mum: I tell you they were holding hands, then the next news I saw Dorothy (the 95-year-old) coming back to her house with a man
Mum: Yes, 95 and she took him in to her house, she needs to be careful
Me: You’re not wrong there
Mum: Well the next time I looked out of the window there was an ambulance outside
Me: Outside where?
Mum: Across the cul-de-sac, they opened the back door and helped the lady across road out and she had a big bandage on her head, it looked like a turban, her head was twice its normal size
Me: laughing, (I am laughing typing this, but I swear this is a true story)
Mum: Yes, they led her out and Dorothy (the 95-year-old) was sitting with the driver in the front of the ambulance and they were laughing.
Me: I bet they were, I bet he was hysterical trying to get her out.
Mum: She is a silly beggar
Me: So, what happened then
Mum: She went in to her house then later the ambulance must have been called back because they took her away
Me: So, she is still in hospital
Mum: yes, I doubt she will be back, she is not fit to live on her own anymore. So, her daughter came to the house and closed all her blinds. It’s depressing all the closed blinds across road.
Me: Never mind they will probably be emptying it soon so you will have something to watch, in fact I might come and watch too
Mum: You are a nosey beggar
Me: Hmm, I don’t know where I get it from!
Mum: Not from me, I’m going now
