Sick Day Working

I have been suffering from swine-flu-like symptoms all weekend, beginning on Friday evening, so today I took a day of sick leave to quarantine myself from the general population.

That’s why there is no coffee picture today. I did drink coffee at home but I forgot to take a picture of it.

Despite not working, I was very busy indeed. With the possibility of Mother’s imminent return home, I decided to do some necessary domestic work to make her house livable. In particular, there were numerous foods and beverages which have ‘expired’ during Mother’s extended absence.

The potatoes were growing…

The towels in the bathroom were showing signs of mould, so I threw them in the washing machine. I checked the fridge for ‘expired’ food, and found plenty. After disposing of it, I washed the containers it had been in.

And the milk had certainly expired…

 

In the evening we went to relax and drink beer at the Red Chopstick… 

I took this long exposure picture from the window of the Red Chopstick. Belinda is visible just beyond the red clothing bin…

Mould

When Mother left her house by ambulance on Tuesday, we didn’t spend much time in preparation for an extended absence. So when I visited Mother’s house today to check on the house and pick up Mother’s mail, I was not surprised to find the house engulfed in multiple fungal growths. Here’s an example which used to be some kind of fruit salad…

 

When I visited the hospital, Mother was looking adequate and was fielding phone calls…

While there, I had the opportunity to spend some time sitting beside a machine that goes ‘beep’ (not ‘ping’)…
