I had the opportunity to meet and help Ms M again. She was happy to see me after a month. Meeting with her reminds me about my time in primary school. She always very precise with her shopping list and she wants to make sure the homework is done properly by reading the list for her.

While I was in the shop I did my weekly shopping too. I could not resist the temptation to kill two birds with one stone. I could not get everything for her because the section on the self was empty. After carefully separate the two shopping at the cashier, I paid for her shopping with cash and for mine with the card. Since I saw her, her knee has had a great recovery. I saw she feels better. She told me that she worries about the rubbish on her street because she might slip on them and cause another fall for her. I told her I will come back to do some litter picking near her block and she was very impressed by my offer.

Yes she is. I can see she is improving since I saw her last. ☺️
