We sure admire our friends who spend all their winters buried in snow. We don't know how you do it. Of course you probably don't live in hundred year old wood houses like ours. Places in NZ don't usually have any central heating but we are lucky as our house is reasonably insulated. Oh, and we have a big warm cosy bed to share at night.

That is what they are calling it on the news - The Big Chill. Christchurch has snow right down to sea level, with snow on the beaches and the most snow the country has seen in twenty years. On the news, some said it was the most snow in their area in the past eighty years. Snow is only on the high hills here in Wellington, and we have just below freezing temperatures.
We know many of our fine friends live in areas where you are buried in snow - for weeks on end during the winter. Wow - we don't know how you do it. We like our normally warm temperate climate. Still we are lucky, as we have two good heaters to keep us cosy and warm.

Mum took some pictures of me during the week when we had a taste of sunshine. Today we had a taste of Antarctic air, drifting up from the South pole and giving us some chilly weekend weather. But that is ok, we have lots of supplies at home and the heater is on full. Mum has lots of books to read, so we are taking it easy.

Lisa Lisa and the Cat Jam . Jack and his sister Baby were adopted by their mum together a few years ago, and have got to live their senior years in comfort and a life full of love. Jack has been sick lately but been oh so brave, but the calling to the bridge is strong and we think that he might be ready to join our friends there soon. We are purring for you all sweet friends.

After all of mums goings out this weekend, she thought it was prudent to not spend a cent today and to stay at home with me. We caught a little bits of sunshine, and mum and I were lazy, having a sleep in and a couple of naps today. Just taking it easy on Sleepy Sunday.

I just rolled around on her bed and rowwwed at her when she got home at late oclock.

Now she is home with me and getting the washing done, giving me my fancy feast and looking forward to a weekend together.
Have a lovely weekend everybuddy.

Because it is winter most of mums winter wardrobe is black and grey. This is her winter duvet, which almost matches my furs, and which I love to roll around on. In fact, I am lying on it right now, while my secretary types out my notes in the living room. Hope you all have some lovely linens to roll around on too.

In July, here in New Zealand where it is mid winter it is all about the sleeping. I am just about permanently planted somewhere in the house, mum says it is hard to get pictures of me with my eyes open. Mum is staying pretty close to home too, as it is perfect weather for a book or browsing blogs. She is also enjoying her winter clothes, wrapping up in scarves and lots of layers. Lots of soups and slow cooked meals too, with lots of winter veg, carrots, leeks, broccoli and sweet apples - yumm. Me - I'll stick to the fancy feast thanks.

It was a crisp morning, so mum put on her gloves and scarf and went for a walk along the beach. She had a little look at the shops and got some groceries before coming home to read her book and now watch David Attenborough, and is encouraged by his energy and enthuisiasm at twice mums age.
We hope you have had a relaxing weekend, and had time with your friends and family. Have a great week everybuddy.

Mum has just got home from her friends birthday dinner out in town. She had bangers and mash (sausages and mashed potatoes). The desert looked great, but mum was way too full and so she resisted. Now she has come home to turn the heaters and electric blanket on, and get her a few pages of her book read before bed. Because I have been hogging the bath mat, she has had to buy a new one, exactly the same - sucker!!

So we got to spend most of the day together, and when mum went to do some jobs she forgot to turn the heater off and so I have had a lovely warm toasty nap. Mum got a chicken to cook for tea, so the house smells nice, the washing is done and most of the weekend chores are already done.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend, and get to spend time with the ones you love.
