Surprise - it's Monday!!!  Mum laughed when she saw this photo with the surprised expression on my face.   Just another day at work for mum, and a day of relaxing for me.  We are getting a taste of autumn, with cloudy skies and chills.  Mum is thinking that she will have to drag out her winter woollies soon, and  sort out the wardrobe.  Time to pack the shorts and tshirts away soon.

Mum made a Nasi Goreng, which is an Indonesian spiced fried rice tonight for dinner and has lots for work lunches all week.  She is determined to not go to the supermarket til the end of the week, after payday.  She has a lot of food in the pantry and fridge, and can make do.

Hope your week has started well.

  12. We can see your Mom's pretty pink toesies in the photo right behind your bum Poppy. Did Mom give you a poke with her foot to make you look so surprised?
