A lovely day at Cannon Hill Park.

The weather was beautiful with a cloudless blue sky and a lovely cool breeze, 

We nibbled feta salad and sipped herbal teas,

Afterwards we found a secluded shady spot underneath some trees,

Where mum could watch children playing with their families.

After a day of hardly drinking anything, when we returned to the home I gave mum one of my small bottles of water with a reusable straw in the top and she was easily able to hydrate herself without prompting. I am wondering if it has something to do with accessibility, tea cups are made of heavy china with narrow finger holes and are maybe awkward to lift to ones lips, however a light plastic bottle with a straw sticking out the top is easier to navigate perhaps? It may also have something to do with the fact she absolutely hates being changed.
