Today I helped mum sleep in, watched her do the washing, helped keep the mattress in the bed as she stripped the sheets, ate as many biscuits as possible , slept for 20 hours and gave her the evil eye as she tried to take my photo. Job done!!
This morning, as mum left the house there was a rainbow across the city which mum admired. There was no time to get an Instagram beautiful shot - as soon as she took these it then clouded over and rained. Poor mum got wet.
Work went quickly. Then mum raced home. She greeted me at the door, dishes out my feast. She cooked up her dinner - some roasted spicy chicken with some slaw. Tasty and quick.
Gosh mum doesn't know why it is so hard for her to sleep on Sunday nights? The weather here was wild all stormy and soaking rain. At least we live up on top of a steep hill and are not at risk of flooding.
Still mum got most of another book read between looking for updates on the young Thai boys being rescued from the caves. Soon enough the alarm was ringing and mum was up and off. She got half way to work before it started pouring and mum got soaked.
So she is all warm and dry tonight with her woolly slippers on. Her tummy is full of leftovers and she is nodding off on the couch so she is planning to join me for an early bedtime.
it has been a wild windy and wet Sunday. Mum slept in - some wine last night helped her to sleep well. She shared a blobby day with me - only stopping to do a few jobs, she skipped going to the market or any other outside jobs. Mum went out last night for a friends birthday which was a fun night out, even though she may have preferred to stay home she was glad that she went out and socialized.
She cooked some roast kumara (sweet potatoes), some lamb and veg for her dinner which was delicious and left her some left overs for tomorrow nights dinner. Me I had a feast, but we are almost out so she better go shopping tomorrow after work or there will be complaints.
We can't believe that Sunday night has rolled round again. We hope you are having a nice Sunday too.
It has been amusing this week watching the news. Besides the reports about the Thai teenagers in the caves that we are pleased are alive and hope get rescued soon, there is little to watch on the nightly news that isn't depressing. However we have been on Whale watch as a large Southern Right Whale has come to play in our city harbour. There is meant to be a fireworks display tomorrow to celebrate Matariki - the Maori New Year. Instead our council have postponed it a week so that we don't frighten our new friend.
Mum was on call last night and had to work, so although she was tired she got to have the day off. It always feels a bit like it is a list day to her, as she slept for a couple of hours during the morning.
She did get herself up and opened up the windows to let the fresh air circulate. She tried to be productive and get some chores done. She was a whizz - mopping, scrubbing, washing , folding and vacumning before collapsing back on the couch.
I got to watch the birdies as mum had put some grapes and bread out and the birds were very excited!!
I am just chillaxing. Mum was up before the sun this morning and off to work. She got a pile of groceries on the way home. Rice with green beans and a slightly too spicy Thai chicken curry was made for dinner. Mum needs lots of water and maybe a cool apple now.
Mum is trying to be productive tonight. Recycling was sorted, dishes are soaking, the washing is done. She still has to wash her face, get her uniform ready for tomorrow, make tomorrow's lunch and put away the left overs.
Gosh we didn't get to post on Caturday - what is happening mum? Mum says she was busy - it was a good friends Big Birthday, so mum went out and spent the afternoon with her and they went out for dinner with friends and family and mum didn't get home until real late after filling up on cake.
Today was the laziest of days. It was wet and windy - so mum decided it was a stay home and be lazy day - which was fine with me. I love those days. But now she is up and doing a few little chores to make the beginning of the work week easier. She is going to make a lemon pasta for dinner and has put a feast out for me.
We have had another quiet day. Mum stayed asleep until 3am and then was wide awake. So today she was dying for a nap, but resisted so that she could be tired tonight. I have no problems with napping or sleeping. Mum wonders if cats get insomnia or sleeping issues ?
In my wide awake times I like to sit on the windowsill and watch my little garden.
