Me - well I fluffed up mums blanket as you can see, made cat shadows and took it easy!! Hope you are taking it easy too.

Mum was glad it is Friday and nice to get home. She spoke to a couple of besties on the phone which made her smile. They were being lazy too, but maybe not as lazy as mum.
She was so lazy that she didn't get out of her uniform til 7pm, and then she got into her fat pants (track suit bottoms), a merino jumper and ugg boots. A beautiful sight.
She was so lazy, that she ate her icecream dessert before she made dinner (blame that on the lady homones). She did then make chicken and rice and vegetables.
She was so lazy that she didn't do half the chores she had planned, and has a lot on during the day tomorrow so they might have to wait til Sunday to get sorted. (she felt guilty writing that one, so while she put the dishes in the sink to soak while she washed her face, and made the spare bed up while the adbreaks were on tv, so two chores are out of the way).
Still she gave me lots of cuddles and have a play with me when she got home as the evening was warm and she opened the doors and windows to let some fresh air in.
Hope you all are having a lovely lazy Friday night.

Mum felt all stuffed up this morning and a bit of the hots and colds on the way to work. She felt the same round lunchtime, so she came home sick and took herself off to bed. We quite enjoyed the nap, she slept from 3pm -8.30pm, and got up to feed me dinner, have a drink and a stretch and is heading off for an early night to try and get rid of the germs. So many people are the same at work at the moment, it seems to be the seasonal flu attacking lots of patients and staff. Luckily the oranges are cheap at the supermarket at the moment as mum has been ploughing through them to get lots of vitamin C the natural way.

We have watched lots of big clouds pass on by the past couple of days, they had bought snow to places both South and North of us, but left our hills alone. It feels like the depths of winter now, and mum has enjoyed visiting our friends blogs and seeing how many of them are enjoying lots of sunshine.
Hope you are all having a good week.

The ten year old girl inside her enjoyed the show, put on by the Wellington musical society. It had a live band, and a large cast all of whom could hold a tune. The show is fun and mum said it was nice to see so many young ones there, with lots of family in the audience. When you think of it, Grease is a pretty grown up story that I am sure skips over the young kids heads, and they enjoy all the singing and dancing too.
Mum remembers going to the movie with her mum when she was ten, and listening to the album over and over which she got for Christmas that year. She is sure that she knows most of the words to the songs too. Now with DVDS, mum couldn't tell you how many times she has seen the movie although she hasn't watched it in the last six years or so she does smile when it is repeated on the tele every holiday season.
So home to turn the heaters on and feed me my feast. An easy dinner was made for mum and then she spoke to Gdad to catch up on the weeks events. Feet up and a bit of tele before mum heads to bed to get rid of her persistent germs.
Hope you all had a fun Sunday!!
Saturday, July 19, 2014
So she wrapped up warm and spent the day on the couch with some lemsip, her book and some episodes of Broadchurch she had recorded from weeks ago. She did venture out at dinner time, as the supply of cat biscuits was getting on the low side. She got a chicken with some coleslaw for her dinner and dished me up a feast for mine.
So we are going to try for an early night tonight as well. It is cold in the city, the sort of cold that creaps in from the floor and chills down the house, so the heater will be on to ward the chilliness away and keep us toasty. We know that we only have a few more weeks of bleak grey weather and it will once again swing toward spring. Someone we work with said that they were out last week and saw peach blossoms already starting!!
Hope you all had a fun day today and enjoyed your Caturday!!

I was not having much to do with the visitors, although last night I was in and out a lot, although mum thought that had a lot to do with it being cold and wet outside. So tonight I have needed an uber big sleep to catch up on my zzzzzzs. Mum went with the teenagers into town this morning, as they had some stuff they wanted to buy. They had some lunch together and then mum let them take the airport bus to the airport and get onto the plane themselves, as it is good for them to have some skills. Miss Belle is very capable and mum is proud that she was quite confident to take them both out and about while mum was sick in bed on Wednesday. Her flu is still sticking around, so mum is sure this weekend will be quiet as she recovers.
Hope you all have some nice plans for your weekend.

She is feeling a bit better, so today took them out for lunch, some shopping and to sushi train for dinner, which was tasty. So off to bed with some tissues soon for her, and hopefully I can sneak in and sleep at her feet.
Tuesday, July 15, 2014
So I have had my feast and am hiding in mums bed, as it is a bit cold, and mum hopes I don't get too scared by the visitors.

We did get up early so mum could watch the football final - which was a bit underwhelming but well done to Germany. Other than that we just cruised. A bit of feast for dinner for me, and potato and leek soup for her.

So another day of working tomorrow, and then lucky old us - mum gets to have a few days off in a row - yippee!!! More sleep ins are planned for us.
Hope you are all getting some sleep ins too.

Mum happened to glance out the window this morning to spy this lovely sunrise. That must mean that she was up far too early!!! Of course red skies in the morning means it will rain on mum just as she leaves the supermarket after work carrying five bags - oh well. Work was steady and mum was glad to get home and rest her weary legs. Some days like today when mum has to stand up all day wearing heavy lead aprons in the operating theatre are hard on mums middle aged lady legs.
So tonight she is glad it is Friday evening, and she is able to relax at home. I demanded dinner as soon as she got home at 4:30pm, and was off to bed by 5pm. Remeber I have to get in my 15 hour night time sleep (it is winter time and I would prefer to be up by 8am at the earliest!!!). Mum is about to make herself a hand made burger and tackle the dishes before putting a load of washing on. She has to work over the weekend, so even though it is TGIF here - it will be an early Friday night. Hope you are all having a chill night too!!.

We hope that you all have a cosy bed to curl up and are finding plenty of good books to read too.

Tuesday night was easy peasy. Baked beans on toast for her and a feast for me. I have already put myself to bed by 7pm, and mum is aiming to join me at 10pm. That way she can get a good nights rest.

Monday morning was not mums finest. She had to be at work at 7am, so for her that means getting up at 5am, which means she should be turning her lights out before midnight, but her book was good. Getting up to go to the bathroom at 4am didn't help either. So she was glad to get home this afternoon, after a visit to the library and to the supermarket. She put on her comfy "I hope someone doesn't see me in these" home pants on (track pants), her sheepskin slippers and a comfy jumper. She had got some DVDs out from the library to watch, and started watching Blue Jasmine, before nodding off half way through.
So after a short nap, mum fed me my feast, and started cooking dinner. Tonight was Green Thai chicken curry with vegetables and rice for her. Lots of leftovers too for lunches for the next couple of days. Television for the evenings entertainment and bed at a more reasonable hour tonight.

Mum was glad the weather was so nice so she walked around the harbour of our little city. She stopped at the weekend market and got a German hotdog for her lunch which was tasty, and she got to sit and watch the people go by and look at the sailing boats, all very refreshing. A quick visit to the library and then the supermarket, and she made it home in time to claim the sheets off the washing line before the frost made them damp again. Me - well I did a lot of napping, both in the sun and in the bedroom.
Dinner was leftover steak and veg from last night, with quick calls to big uncle and his family and to Gdad. Now a bit of blogging and time to read for a while before the working week starts again.
Saturday, July 5, 2014
Dinner for me was my new sachets of food I am trying, and mum had some nice fillet steak, with oven baked potatoes and some mixed veg. She likes a bit of meat and 3 veg - simple foods.
Television was watched and now mum is catching up on blogs next to me on the bed. She took these pictures just a half hour or so. After months of sleeping in the lounge, I'm back on her bed baby!!! Get ready to be furred!!
Hope you all had a fun Caturday - had a wee treat or two.
Friday, July 4, 2014
A quick and easy dinner for mum and some feast for me at a regular time - hallelujah!!! Mum did laugh as I tried to snuggle on her knee about three times tonight, another sure sign that the weather has turned for us.
We hope all of our American friends are enjoying their holiday and loving the hots. We are green with envy at the thought of eating outside and being warm. Have a steak and a piece of pie for us!!!

Keep warm and toasty my friends.

So she will see how I go after a few more meals at a normal time.
July already - how did that happen?
