I was over at Mum and Dad’s for dinner this evening. There is nothing like home cooked food. Fresh asparagus, meat cooked on the BBQ, and fresh fruit for dessert. Yum! While Dad got the BBQ ready I popped up to the chemist to get Dad’s script refilled.
I really do like Mum and Dad’s pharmacist, he knows his stuff and is a lovely man to boot. He and his family have been here for years, he came over from Senegal to go to university. I couldn’t stop for much of a chat, just enough to enquire about his daughter. She had gone back to Senegal on her gap year to visit her grandmother. Met a boy and fell in love. She was now heavily pregnant and ‘stuck’ there until she had the baby.
She was good, though he was nervous about her and would much rather that she was here in Sydney with the rest of her family.
I had to wait while Carl filled the script and I noticed that there was a good stock of surgical gloves so grabbed a couple of boxes, one for Mum, the other for Grace. I think though I’ll get Mum to hold on to Grace’s along with all the food I brought.
Oh, and in other news. Richard asked me to go to Waitangi Day festivities with him on Saturday.
