Mum managed to leave her work swipe card at home today, got wet on the way to work and on the way home, she burnt her rice for dinner and undercooked the chicken.  I stayed home and read mums book and broadened my mind.

This is how I have spent my Sunday.  How about you?  Are you being lazy too?

 Soring weather sure is fickle, with light rain and cold mum is sick of having to wear her jacket every day.  She met up with some friends for lunch and a wander today which was nice.  Mum had a big bowl of a Thai noodle soup full of fresh vegetables  for her lunch.  She bought some candles from the locally owned candle shop and a Danish pastry from the market to have for her breakfast tomorrow. 

I was happy  to stay home and snooze.  

The election is finally over here which is a relief.  Mum is not surprised with the results,  a labour landslide with Jacinda Ahern continuing as leader.

Sunny Afternoon

Mum took the afternoon off work.  She got the groceries, and voted, came home and cooked  some lunch, did some dishes and got 3 loads of washing done and on the line to dry in the sun.  Then she grabbed her book and sunglasses,  kicked off her shoes and sat in the sun and read her book.  I came over to have a snooze by mums shoes.  What a great way to spend  the afternoon.

Reading Time

Mum was trying to read her book, and I tried  to help her out.  It has got a bit cold again here.  Mum got home this afternoon  before a drop of hail.  She tucked  herself up in bed to stay snuggly while she read.

Our election is on this Saturday.  Mum can't wait  for it to be over, as all the waffle and speculation fills the evening news and websites.

Mr Tui

Mum was waiting  for her bus after work and was entertained by  this young Tui bird who was hopping around feasting on the flax flowers.   She took a video, but can't upload it as it is too big for blogger.  Such a delight - mum has never had one come so close to her.  In the last photo he sung mum a little Tui song, entertaining mum and other people  at the bus stop.

It is raining and cooler tonight.  Mum has cleaned  out some old clothes in a half hearted spring clean, watched a documentary series on The Challenger, watched The Split series 2, and read some if her book.  She found some old photos,  like this one of me as a  little  kitty, and tried to tidy the living room and hovered the house.

Visitor Caturday

Naughty neighbor cat came over for a touch of sunbathing on the shed this afternoon.   When I was a youngster I used to jump up on shed roofs too, but now I am a senior citizen my climbing days are over.  Mum did chores this morning  and went and did some fun stuff this afternoon.   She felt like a senior  too, choosing  glasses and looking  at sensible shoes.  What fun!!

 I refused to eat my dinner tonight and followed  mum around all evening  begging for treats.  I told you I loved them.

Not much happening here today.  Just looking forward  to our weekend.   Mum and I are counting  down the hours until her work  is done for the week.

I like to spend a lot of my day pondering  - wondering  what I should do next.  Sleep on my shopping bag or move to my heated bed?

Essential Shopping

Mum had to go to the supermarket  after work for some essential  supplies.  She let me choose which treats to have and I chose these ones to try first.   Mum is often a bit suspicious if ones that say natural, but I loves them.  I give them 4 paws from me.

Dusk time, and the next door neighbour's tabby cat is sitting  outside taking in the view of the setting sun.  Today  has been the first day that the towels were fully dry after being out on the line.  Mum went for a stroll by the harbour, got her lunch from a food van and sat in the sun enjoying  her picnic.

 Today I spent the day helping  the mumster do her chores.  Washing all the clothes was done today, hoovering, dusting, dishes and scrubbing  the loo - oh my.  Just towels to be done tomorrow  and then mum can head out and have some fun.  I was her little  shadow, following  her around the house and garden.  I need a day off tomorrow as I'm tired.
