My Beloved was going to whisk me away for fun times and shopping and so on. BUT MeMum needs fuel for her mower, so offski I poddle on that mission. We might even get to clear the air on some issues between us.
[I didn't want to do that alone but... circumstances are beyond my control]
With luck and good fortune and a LOT of patience -most likely on my part- we might get back to amiable circumstances.
Onwards to story, then to don clothes and poddle off.
Wish me luck.
