Us girls are having a quiet one tonight as we are very tired. Thanks for all the comments on out last post and the pictures if houses in our neighborhood. We don't live in any if those houses. Ours is not very cute from the outside but is nice enough for us. This is a catch up weekend for us. Chores and sleep one are what mum has planned.
Mum took these pictures on the walk home tonight at 9pm. She had gone with her friends to see the new Star Wars movie. Our suburb is fully if these small villas and houses built around 1890-1915. Luckily lots have been restored and done up and are now quite expensive.
Ha mum was doing the kitchen tidy up thing tonight and dropped the mustard jar on the tile floor. It shattered and put mustard all over her sandal and toes. So now a huge tidy up and a good foot scrub. So time to finish the dishes and then a slice of cold watermelon for her.
Mum had a chilled out Munster Monday today. After a steady weekend if working she was glad to be able to sleep in with me. As the day was sunny, she loaded up the washing machine and washing line.
She then went and did a couple of chores that she needed to get done. Off to the supermarket and library then last stop was at the hairdressers to get her grey's fixed up. She took this photo of the inside if the hairdressers where they have a big table to chill out at and read or like mum - watch Netflix on her phone.
Now home for dinner and time for us girls to chill out and relax. Mum has lit candles, put a face mask on herself, started a movie and opened a packet of chocolate chip cookies to start on. Good girl mum.
Mum got home late from work tonight. She had a good day and there were drinks and bubbles at a colleagues house afterwards which was lovely. So my dinner and treats were pretty close together tonight which I didn't mind too much.
It is a bit cooler tonight which will be better for middle aged mumsters sleep. She has been sleeping with a window open. No one can sneak in so mum feels safe. She is going to look for a fan next week as it is going to be a long hot summer.
I have been sleeping on the couch to keep cool and mum tends to toss and turn in the heat disturbing my sleeps. We do love summer - mum has been wearing sandals every day and has even unpacked her shorts.
Mum gave me a photo session at the weekend. I just closed my eyes and stayed asleep. It has been very warm - perfect for napping and just chilling out. She loves photos of me snoozing - especially of that soft spot on my forehead.
Mum was out early in the morning and came across this cutie out in the front garden of their house. Black and white tuxie cats are not so common here, and this one was especially sweet needing a pat and a rub from my mum.
I sent mum off to the local school fair. Her friends and her meet up and wander round together. They have been going for over 20+ years. Today the did not buy much however as there wasn't much that appealed to them. Mum got some new undies and some olive oil.
I like her leather bag but I am not usually allowed to touch it as I normally scrat h it. This time I was really gentle and just laid down gentle. It was a pity she had to take the bag with her.
Today I kept Munster home all day with me. I made her sleep in and have a lazy day at home. She did get the washing out on the line, she vacuumed the carpets, did some cooking, changed the beds, watered the garden, put a face mask on and relaxed.
Me - well I slept inside, I slept outside, I sat on the windowsill, I sat on the carpet, I ate biscuits, I drank water, I ate fancy feast, I ate some bugs and I ate treats. Yum yum.
This was tonight's dinner - spicy chicken tacos. Mum got asked about her food subscription. She uses My Food Bag which is a NZ one. On Weds she gets an email telling her what will be delivered on Sunday. It will tell her if she needs any pantry items like olive oil, butter or milk. On Sunday afternoon her box is delivered at approx 3pm straight to her door.
In the box are the recipes and ingredients for 4 meals, one of which is big enough for two people to eat. Mum finds there is often enough for leftovers the next day and will get 6-7 meals out if the food. The chucken/fish/meat is all in sealed bags and chilled along with vegetables and things like sour cream.
They support NZ businesses and use local fresh ingredients and base menus on seasonal produce. It has got mum eating more salads than normal and her work trousers were a little loser this week. She has learnt a lot of new menus and techniques which is good.
Mum had been a bit bored with her own cooking and this has got her a bit more enthused. It is pricey at $99 but mum is shopping less and less likely to waste any food so it is not so bad. It is also easy to opt out of if you go away or would like to stop for a while. There a range if types of boxes for different size family or vegetarian options.
Me - well I'm easy. A cab of feast each night suits me.
Tonight's tasty dinner was a pumpkin/courgette/cucumber beef salad that mum enjoyed. She had a long day at work and went for a walk afterwards to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. It is ice to not have to think about dinner, everything was all organized when she got home.
Last night there was a low sea fog that gave a spooky look to the night sky. Mum was able to get these shots at 11pm. She is trying her best to head to bed around 10pm. Last night was a fail but she will try harder tonight. Better luck tonight mum.
Mum wasn't sure if she would like tonight's dinner. It was a fish with panko crust and a salad made with grain, pear,red onion,corn and spinach. Mum cooked the grain but didn't like it so left it out. She liked the rest of it all though and finished it all.
Mum had to work today, which went pretty quickly. Christmas is coming quickly - just 4 weeks away, so not many shopping days left. She found all these cool pillow cases on ETSY - perfect for you to snuggle up to.
