Today was the last day of summer here - and it was glorious with lots of warm sunshine. Mum got the washing dried outside and for dinner she made some home made burgers - tasty!! Tomorrow, the seasons shift into autumn and the slide into winter. So goodbye February, we have enjoyed all the cloudless days and warm sunshine you have brought us.

Mum had good intentions of going and get some jobs done, and going to the movies to see Lincoln. She decided that instead of spending money at the movies, she would watch a movie that she had got from the library on DVD. Movies at the cinema are about $16 here, and for that she can watch four movies from the library. She watched The Grey, as she likes Liam Neeson, about a group of works stranded in Alaska after a plane crash. Her verdict was it was a good 4/5 watch, but very grim and lots of violence.
She thought she might get a takeaway burger for dinner, but instead she has put some fish and hash browns in the oven and is cooking some broccoli. She had all those things in the fridge/freezer , so is a much better and healthier option.
Tomorrow she gets paid, and has birthday and leaving presents to get and bills to be paid, so mum is going to have to be careful with her dollars this month. She is going out for dinner on Saturday night and might get lunch out tomorrow, so that is enough treats for the week.

The past couple of days I have been very snuggly with my mum. In the evening, I have jumped on her lap - only for five minutes though, that's my rule. In the morning I went and snuggled next to her as she was drying her hair. Mum likes to believe that it is because I love her lots, but she is thinking that maybe it is because it is getting a bit colder round the house. She certainly thinks that it is the reason that I snuggle up to her at night and plant myself right between her knees, so she can't move.

Ohh - hooray for us. Tonight is out 2000th post!! Wowee!

A bit of gardening, a bit of housework and some reading kept mums day busy and I followed her round like a bad smell. She used up some of the veg she bought at the market for her dinner, roasted kumara (sweet potato) with baked salmon, a couscous with veg, and broccoli and beans. Take that 5 plus veg a day.
This evening, well we are taking it easy, sharing the couch and a couple of tv dramas. Hope you get to take it easy too.

Work went ok, but when mum got home she was meant to catch me to go see Dr Eve at the vets. I kept running away from mum, over to the neighbours house. Mum thought I was gone for good, so called the vets and said we wouldn't be able to come. I did though sneak in at 4pm, so mum got me in the PTU, and told the vets I was coming. They said though that we had missed the appt, mum thought it was for 4.15pm, but she was wrong. We were meant to be there at 4pm. So try again next week.
Then mum and I had a nap, and she woke up in a hurry, thinking she would head to the library and pick up some reserved books, but when she got up she realised it was 8pm, not 7pm. So the washing is only starting now, mum still has to cook dinner and she will go to the library tomorrow morning. Go mum!!
Still we are having a good night at home, have full bellies and a warm bed to sleep in, so the annoyed feelings will be forgotten quickly.

Then mum may head to be bed early to read her book as she has an early bird start at work tomorrow.
Hope your day holds some calmness as well.

I had my feast and now I have gone to bed at 7pm leaving mum to be lazy in the lounge. She is allowed to watch some tele as long as she does chores in the ad breaks.

Tonights dinner was leftovers. A steak and veg like last night but with fresh sweetcorn - yum. We hope you don't mind us talking about our dinner, but it helps inspire mum too. She always cooks from scratch, cooks quickly and often just uses one pot and simple ingredients. Mum isn't likely to buy any truffles, caviar or saffron.
When mum got home she let a flea bomb off, and is now airing out the bedroom. Much as she doesn't like the thought of insecticide, she doesn't like the bites she has had the past week. She also has mowed the lawn, washed the windows in the lounge and done a bit of weeding. She is going to put the washing away and then settle down to watch some tele.
Have a lovely Monday lovies.

Mum stayed up late watching bad tv and loading the dishwasher. Friday night fun. This morning she got up earlish, and wandered down to the market. Today she bought potatoes, pumpkin, corriander, onions, lemons, apples, courgettes, cucumbers, bell peppers, apricots and green beans.
Then she went to town to get her hair cut and coloured. The day was beautiful so mum went for a walk around the shops. She bought a tshirt on sale, and a subway roll for her lunch, and as a treat a tropical fruit smoothie. She then headed home to keep me company. A nice hour reading in the sunshine made mum sleepy so a little nap was in order. There was lots of chicken risotto leftover, so mum had that for her dinner and I had my feast.
So a lovely quiet day here Q headquaters. Mum has the washing machine going and is doing chores while the tv is on tonight and I am napping on the bed. We hope you all have a lovely day, do something that makes you smile and get some time to put your feet up.

Enjoy your Friday - we hope you do something fun and feast on something tasty.

Mum and I are having a good evening at home. Think last nights dinner - take away the salmon and replace it with a piece of steak. Then there is enough steak and salad for tomorrows lunch - yum says mum. My feast was nice, and mum is starting me on some new diet biscuits. Good luck mum.

Oh well - mum is going to persevere and see how it goes.

Not so pleased with my chub. Apparently I have now reached the golden weight - 6kgs (since I am six years old it is easy to remember). Mum got told that we have to do better.
Mum is feeling the chub too, so she is going to try and be better with me. Wish us luck!!

Enjoy your Sunday everybuddy.

Then home to read her book in the garden, a shower and then off to kidsit for some friends while they went out for dinner. Now home and on the couch to watch the Antiques Roadshow - new episodes, bliss!!! Oh and I am sitting on her knee while she is typing this, a rare occurrence indeed.
Mum is glad to have a relaxing weekend after working the last two. We hope you are all having a great Caturday too.

Mum had a good day at work today. All of her patients were lovely, but she is glad to have the weekend off and to leave work in perfect sunshine. Especially as she heard that a chap she knows at work, well he killed himself this week, and that made mum a bit sad. She wishes that if wasn't the answer for so many good people, that they could have reached out, and that they could be sitting in the sun, enjoying a perfect evening. Mum knows that life is short anyway, and it flies by in an instant.
So we are going to sit on the deck, mum will have a cool drink and toast her friend, and I will have my fancy feast. We hope you all find something that makes you smile this weekend.

Mum wishes there was a mid weekend holiday every week.

Mum says my eyes are a bit better today and I am coping with two lots of ointment in my eyes every day, which is lucky yesterday we got a whole months rain in one day, and today is a bit chilly.
Have a lovely Tuesday.
Monday, February 4, 2013
So now I am back home and mum is surprised, as I am lying on her foot on the rug snoring happily, exhausted from all of the excitement. It is poring with rain, so mum is going to go to the library and supermarket, then come back and hang with me.
Sunday, February 3, 2013
Have a lovely Sunday and we will let you know what the vet says.

Watering the garden, washing her face and putting the groceries away will be done in the ad breaks.
Hope you are all doing something nice for yourselves on Friday night!! Take it easy and do something that makes you smile.
