This mornings meeting of our neighbors cats was well attended with naughty neighbor cat and next door tabby cat taking up their positions of staring intensely at each other. Their president Miss Poppy princess chaired the meeting from her bag on the bed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
