Clarington, how about treating your mum to a water filter jug, and a supply of filters that will last until you visit again, we live in Devon and the water is supposed to soft, it's horrible, I could not drink it straight from the tap.
I remember visiting a friend in Essex and the tea tasted as though it was just out of a swimming pool. People get used to it and probably your mums always had it that way.
It's not nice at all here, dear, cold, usual gales and very very wet. Tis peaceful though
