Oh and the other way my job differs - no pay!!
Saturday, January 28, 2012
Mum went and met one of her besties for dinner in the summer sun and to see the move Midnight in Paris, which she said was good. Then she came home and let me play with making the bed, my favoritist job.
Oh and if you want to read a good post, visit our friend Leanne at http://cottagetails.blogspot.com/ This weekend there were auditions for The Hobbit, here in Wellington, where Peter Jackson is filming it. Leanne went and was one of the lucky 800 who got let in. Thousands more people turned up at the auditions, and they had to close it off turning lots of people away. And no - mum did not go, it turns out that shortie her was too tall to be a hobbit !!!

Still we know we are luckier than our Northern Hemisphere friends who are buried in snow, with temperatures much cooler than us. We think it is a kiwi trait to whinge about the weather, we all do it.
So are you snoozing today?

Sunday is a perfect day for taking it easy, we try not to have a lot planned, and as mum and I have stuck to the house all weekend, we haven't spent a lot of money either, which is good.

Mum is glad she mowed the lawn last night, and today she has been productive cleaning up the spare room and getting rid of the box city that was living in there. Cos it's a home day, mum is giving her hair a break from the hairdryer and straighteners, and no make up, just casual all the way. She hopes her neighbours don't laugh when she takes the wheelie bin out for collection tonight. She's not really worried, as they'll all be tucked up on their couches watching the tv keeping warm.

One of the things that mum has done the past year, and is redoing this year is a $5 jar. See every time mum goes to buy something, groceries, bus fares, fancy feast - if she is given a $5 note, she keeps it, takes it home and puts in a jar. Every year then, when mum and the besties go to the art show, mum has a wad of notes to take with her. If there is no art that she likes or can afford, then mum has a bit of money to treat herself to something nice. It is amazing how quick the dollars add up, and now several of mums friends do it.
We hope you all have some nice plans for 2012.

http://cottagetails.blogspot.com/, she was talking about hand made gifts, and how they are the best because they are made with love. Well this is the beautiful quilt that Leanne and her wonderful daughter Abbey made for me. We thought they might like to see the photos of me curled up on it on my sleepy position, on the chest of drawers in front of mums painting.
I love my quilt, it helps give me great sleeps, and mum says I need my beauty rest.
Thank you ladies - we are lucky to have friends like you.

Mum went out in the rainy aftenoon on New Years Eve for a movie and eats with one of her besties. She was home by 8pm, and me and her snuggled on the couch with the heater on, as it was cold in Wellington. We then had an early night, and were snoozing before midnight, no party animals at our house.
Today we had a sleep in and a lazy day , a bit of gardening and curling up on the couch with a book.
