Ludo here. We’ve been discussing Mummy. Not just because of the A to Z Challenge. That’s only two weeks away.
Mummy has been behaving oddly all week.
Biggles says she does this every year about now, but even he said she was very odd on Saturday.
What has she been doing?
Well, she went out for most of the day on Monday, and said she’d been birdwatching. I suppose that’s not odd, really. Biggles said she used to do it every week when they were in Norfolk. She’s done it about once a month last year, so I suppose she’s started again. Then she spent all Tuesday in the front room, with lots of noises coming out of the room, like they do from the computer on Saturday afternoons, but she was saying more things, too. Then she went out in the evening. She never does that.
Same happened on Wednesday, when it was raining hard all day. She said all the horses were drenched, and hers didn’t like the mud. I don’t know, I’m just telling you what she said. Then she went out in the car in the evening.
Thursday it was dry again, but she still spent all afternoon in the front room, and Friday. Then at the end of the Friday front room time, she dashed into our room to sit in front of the people sliding down the hills on her computer. Well, we’re used to that.
Then Saturday afternoon, she started behaving oddly. I mean oddly even for her. She went to bed when it was still light. Then she got up and gave us our cucumber, and Biggles his meds, and went down to the room where she gave Biggles his bath the week before, and was quiet for a while. She came back and said, “well, that’s all right, boys, I haven’t got it.” Then she went to bed again. And got up very late on Sunday.
I should add that she gave us cuddles, cucumber, hay, water, breakfasts, more hay and cuddles all at the right times more or less the rest of the week. Just Saturday and Sunday morning were a bit random. Then lunchtime she said she was feeling better and watched people sliding down hills all afternoon.
Then she mowed the grass.
So, as this is the first day of spring, we have to ask: is this spring fever? Will she recover?
Otherwise, everything’s fine here. All normal.
