I should be more sure about these things

A list of things I think my mother likes:

Tea - Kwazulu and Yorkshire Gold, never green or mint. She will not take Earl Grey but I do not think she is opposed to Lady Grey.


Lamb chops

Christmas pudding

Sausages from Bathurst


Chopping wood  - with a small axe

Knitting - but not sewing together the finished pieces

Remembering her mother - without revealing how she feels about the memory

Reading novels - never poetry 

Knowing how long it takes her to walk up the big hill 

Hanging clean washing on the line - I am unsure but it seems to me as though there is a satisfaction in this chore more than in the others
