Our Caturday sleep in was nice. Mum snoozed after the alarm went off, and then had to grab her dressing gown when the courier man knocked on the door. Poor fellow, he must see people in all kinds of states.
Mum then did the washing and a few chores, then she walked into town as it was lovely and sunny. She then caught a bus and went visiting.
Her and a bestie went to a movie. They saw A Million Ways to Die in the West - it was baaaaaaaaaaaaaad, and not in the so bad it was good way. It was awful, not funny, crude 14 year old boy toilet and sex humour and just horrible. In fact mum thinks it is the worst movie she has seen in years, and she's seen a lot. She would only rate it a 1/5 and is generous in giving it that one, if only because Charlize Theron and Liam Neeson appear. The saving grace was that it was mums friends choice of movie to see, so at least mum doesn't have to take the blame for this one.
Her bestie and her tried eating somewhere new. They went to and Indian Restaurant across the road from the cinema. When they arrived they said that it would be about 20 minutes before they got their meals as they were busy, in fact it was a one hour wait. The food was nice, but nothing that would make mum return and the restaurant was cold, and in need of heaters. As it the official start of our winter tomorrow, the weather has chilled down overnight dropping to freezing and feeling frosty.
So mum then got to come home and eat chocolates on the couch with me. Now we are off to bed with a book and the electric blanket on. Hope you have all had a great Caturday too!!

We know we were lucky living in our last house, and this doesn't have to be forever. So we try and make it feel like our place with our stuff around, cosy for me and mum. We also know that we are lucky to be able to just about afford to live without sharing the space with others, and many kitties don't get to go outside like me.

Me I stayed home and manned the bed. I kept it warm and cosy. Job well done.

The southern parts of NZ got a whole lot of snow yesterday and today, and we just have a sudden drop in temperature. But our heat pump and electric blanket will keep us toasty warm.
Mum had a busy shift. No dinner break for her, so it was pumpkin soup and toast at half past eleven tonight. That way her tummy is full and won't wake her up.
Sweet dreams everybuddy.

Mum was telling Gdad this week about one of her patients. She held mums hand and said that Mum was going off and travelling soon. Mum smiled, and the lady told her she was a psychic and that she thought all mums dreams would come true by the end of the year. That made mum smile. The next morning she woke up having a dream that her and Gdad were in London. Mum planned that they would go to the Imperial war museum for the morning and drive by Buckingham Palace in the afternoon. Imagine that? Mum might even get to meet Queenie!!! Anyway it has made mum smile all week.
Hope you all get to have a warm and cosy Sunday evening.

We had a little old sleep in, and then I sent the mumster out into the rain and wind. She met some friends for a little wander and a little French lunch which was nice. She tried to go the market, but the heavens opened so she only grabbed one bunch of coriander.
Then she was off into town to meet a bestie for a wander and some cheap eats. So she has come home with a full belly and happy to have met up with her friends. A little feast and a snuggle from me, a little tv on the couch and then a little read in bed and all in all it has been a good Caturday.
Hope you are all having some fun too!!

Mum has caught up on a couple of her programmes, Nurse Jackie is back on, she still likes Scandal, and Graham Norton is a good Friday night laugh.
Hope you are all ready for your weekend. Countdown to Caturday has started!!

We realize that this is a first world problem. Of course mum will use the powder, as I am sure there is minimal difference, probably just less sudsy stuff. If any washing machine powder companies are interested in sponsoring a middle aged mumster - we are open to offers.

Can you see the white house in the back of this garden, it has a red stripe around it? Turns out big uncle used to live there over twenty five years ago when he was a young man. So he knew where to come when he came to visit us, as our house is only round the corner.
Mum is glad that after two early shifts this week, we will get a sleep in the next two days which will be nice. Try as she might to get into bed before 10:30pm, the lights are seldom out before midnight, and then having to get up at 5 or 6am makes for not too much sleep.
Have a good Tuesday everybuddy.

Hope you have all had a good start to your week.

Although she had the best of intentions to do lots of stuff, her book was calling and we even managed a wee afternoon nap. A fancy feast was released for me, and mum made mashed potatoes, sausages and peas for herself for dinner, leaving her lots of leftovers for the next night.
Hope your Sunday is just as lazy/relaxing as ours.

She let me have a bit of ham, and I did my usual trick of sniffing it and then walking away. I came back in an hour and then ate the little bit she left me. By then she had eaten all the rest, so I only got a little treat.
Mum then went out and met a bestie for a while and they went for a walk and then went to see The Grand Budapest Hotel. Mum did admit to dosing off for a while. It was ok, very pretty to look at and kooky like all Wes Anderson movies, mum just thinks that the story wasn't particularly clever or funny. She does love listening to Ralph Fiennes though, such a silky voice. Dinner was Vietnamese chicken noodles loaded with tonnes of veg. Like all old ladies, mum was most happy to be home on her own couch by 8pm after an afternoon out.
Fancy feast was served, a bit of blogging done, and we are ready to be tucked up in bed by 11pm. All is right in the world. Enjoy your Caturday everybuddy!!

What do you like to scratch on?
Thursday, May 15, 2014
So we are looking forward to the weekend and a chance to catch up on even more snoozes.
Hope you all got enough napping done today. Truth be told I sometimes like to get a good 23 hours of snoozing done, especially in the winter time.

So even though the mumster had an early start this morning, she has to stay up a while longer as she is on call tonight. So she is braced and ready in case she gets called in. Her clothes are ready to be jumped into, and the coat and scarf are by the door.

Sweet dreams and sunbeams everybuddy.

I then needed a nap while I sent mum out to do some chores and she took a little walk alongside the harbour which she enjoyed. A visit to the supermarket bought her home in the early evening with some fish for her dinner and some feast for mine. She did laugh as after dinner I did some crazy cat zooming around before climbing on her lap a record 8 times for little 10 minute micro naps. Mum caught up on a couple of episodes of Scandal - she loves that show.
Now as midnight creeps in, it is time to retire to the bedroom with a good book and dreams of a lovely Mothers Day Sunday.

This morning mum was up early to head to her hairdresser. Her hairdresser has moved salons, and the salon is now only a five minute walk away which is good. So mum has the greys covered up and the ends chopped off, so she feels fresh. The colour is a bit darker for the winter which mum likes.
We had the doors and windows open for a while, but is is a bit chilly so the heat pump is on now for a little bit before mum heads off to work. She doesn't leave any heating on while she is at work,, but I have lots of cosy spots to curl up in to keep warm til mum gets back.
Hope you are all having a fabulous Friday - see you on Caturday!!!

Do you see that I am napping on my favourite bag? I still love to sleep in it and sleep on top. Either way is a pleasure.
And yes friends I do have a pre sleep snooze. I often go to bed on a normal night after I have had my feast for dinner. I pre snooze from 6pm- 11pm. The mumster joins me for the main snoozefest 11pm- 7am. I then get up for breakfast and a little shuffle around, and then come backs and sleep most of the day away on my bag. Life is good for me!!
Hope you all have a lovely day!!

As the afternoon was nasty, mum headed to the movies to see The Invisible Woman, a movie about Charles Dickens and his secret mistress. It is possibly mums favourite type of drama, a historical drama with lots of hoop skirts and pretty bonnets. She likes it when the characters looked lived in, where their hair and makeup seems to fit with the times, rather than been Hollywoodised and they are too picture perfect. It was a very slow movie, but mum and the other four in the cinema enjoyed it. She went to the local arthouse cinema that has comfortable couches and cushions, a perfect way to spend a wild wet afternoon off.
Once a couple of chores were done - isn't going to the post office tedious - mum got home to make Nasi Goreng, an Indonesian Fried Rice dish for her dinner, and she has lots of yummy leftovers for the next couple of evenings. Dishes were done, family phoned up and now she is going to settle down and watch some Greys Anatomy. Me - I'm snoozing in the bedroom ready for bed.

Sorry that we missed out posting on Caturday, but the mumster got stuck at work for a long 12 hours yesterday, and when she crawled home before midnight, she only had the energy to eat some high carb/low nutrient food, watch some trashy tv before falling into bed, and getting up at 7am to head back into work. The good thing is that she is home now, and has Monday off, and the rest of the week she can have sleep ins so her rest will be restored.
I have been back snuggling on the bed, which makes her smile. As winter approaches, the quilt to mum ratio is climbing. At the moment she sleeps with a duvet, and two quilts piled on top, and a fluffy blanket folded at her feet. Mum hates a cold bed, and is lovely and snuggled in with her flannel sheets.
Hope you are having a lovely end to your weekend, and getting in lots of snuggles too.

Mum ventured out from the burbs, and went to town tonight. It was one of the besties birthdays, and it was a lovely evening, with good food, great company and some laughter. A good thing to do every now and again. I stayed home and manned the fort. There was fancy feast and some cuddles for me when she got home. Mum then sat and watched Graham Norton. Russell Crowe was a guest - mum does still like him.
Hope you all had a fun Friday too.
