Thanks for sharing 2015 with us and helping us get through. Alas command central was dispatched in the recycling this morning, and mum did check to make sure I was not inside. She would like to let you know that big boxes like that are hard to break down and mum is sure she may have grown some muscles overnight. Us girls are having a quiet night at home and celebrating on the couch like good middle aged ladies should. We hope that you all get to have an enjoyable evening and we wish you a great 2016 full of health and wealth.

So mum had something easy for dinner. Guess what she bought from the supermarket? Easter buns! As soon as Christmas is over they can't wait for an opportunity to start flogging the next public holiday. Only 3 months to go, but who is counting?
So now mum and I have a chance to head to bed at the same time tonight. Guess she better put the linens back on so we can snuggle down.

Last night mum went into work at 8pm and was there until after 1am. She got some sleep at 3am and then got woken up at 6.30am and went back for a couple of hours. She then thought as she was awake at 9am she would pop into town and look at a couple of sales. Well town was already pumping, there were lots of people already out and shopping. Mum got a 1/2 price bra, a couple of tshirts a couple of other little things. She was fading fast, so back home for a nap. It only lasted an hour, before I popped into to tell her I was ready for my dinner - every 3 seconds. So finally she got me fed.
Then she had her dinner of Christmas leftovers before back to work 7.30pm-10:30pm. Just as she was walking into our house, she watched the helicopter arrive at the hospital, so she is going to sit down for 10 minutes and then wait to see if she is called back in. Time to watch a bit of The Bodyguard - mum does love a bit of young Kevin Costner.
The good thing is that she can drop the phone in tomorrow morning for someone elses turn.
So hope you are all enjoying your boxes too!!

Then the she needs to put some tidy clothes on and switch the work phone on, ready for action!!
Hope you all have a wonderful day - with full bellies and some little treats!!
Thursday, December 24, 2015
Hope all your presents are wrapped and turkeys are chilling! See you at Christmas!
Wednesday, December 23, 2015
Work was ok, and she was able to pop into the supermarket after work. Amazing how busy it still is, but shopping at 11pm means most of the crowds are still at home. No strawberries left, so mum will try and pop out tomorrow to get some early.
Me - I got my feast and went for a little walk outside while mum popped the rubbish out. Now is time for mum to have a little nibble on some treats and then time for bed. Tomorrow will be a long long day.
Hope you are all ready for the festive season!! Two more sleeps til Santa.
Tuesday, December 22, 2015
Then off to the supermarket, just in case she ran out of food over Christmas. It is amazing how many treats you need for just one or two days. Mum would explode if she ate all the Chocolate she has stocked up, but as she is trying to avoid too much sweet stuff the rest of the year it is always nice to have some treats. Lucky me - I get treats every day.
So at 7.30pm mum is nodding off on the couch and might head off to bed soon. She needs to stock up on sleep, 3 more nights of call before she gets some time off.
Hope you all have got some relaxing done.
Monday, December 21, 2015
Hope you are not too busy my friends and have plenty of time for zzzzs.
Sunday, December 20, 2015
Hope you all had a nice day too.
Saturday, December 19, 2015
Ooops = change of mind. She has switched the apple tv on and is going to watch a quick film. 5 Flights up with Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton. A nice light comedy for a middle aged lady is just the thing.
Hope you have all had a fabulous Caturday and got some fun things done!
Friday, December 18, 2015
So mum has piled up the lem sip and the tissues and hopefully she can chase the germs away. Let the days off begin.
Thursday, December 17, 2015
It is day 7 of the super crazy 7 day stretch, so mum is pleased to have got through. She has been surprised, as she probably has the most sleep this week that she has had in months which is good. She got herself out today for a walk in the fresh air, and popped into the library for her Christmas supply of books and also to drop off some chocolates for the team that work there.
We have had rain today and it was cool. Our summers have been like this for a couple of years now. We seem to get a few nice sunny calm days in spring, then lost of rain and wind up until Christmas with the occasional sunny warm days. Oh well - we are lucky to not have snow or tornadoes.
So mum is hanging out until 11.30pm when shifts will be over and she won't have to be back to work til Monday morning.
Hope your week is going well.

It has been nice to have the sun shining the past two days, time to get the washing out. Mum will relax and watch a couple of shows before she heads off to work again. Call the Midwife and Modern Family await. She has finished two books also this week, so she feels like she has managed to get a bit of relaxing in.
I have been sleeping lots and am always glad to see mum when she gets home at night. I always run to the door to greet her, and then tell her I am ready for my feast. A midnight feast is just as tasty, and then I need to sleep it off.
Saturday, December 12, 2015
She finished at 10pm tonight which is the perfect time to pop into the supermarket. Stocks are being stocked up and most of the crazy folk are out having fun or in bed. Just lots of 20 year olds buying beer and chippies. Mum bought some some stuff to make some chicken risotto and has just realised that she forgot to buy lemons. She thinks she may have one - that will have to do. Tomorrow there will be time to make a meal that will last a few days just so she doesn't eat too much junk. Mum was lucky too as she just got home before it poured down.
So now I have had my late night feast and us girls are ready for a bit of evening relaxing. Modern Family binge here we come!!
Have a fun Caturday everybuddy.
Friday, December 11, 2015
So mum has to go and get her uniform ready, paste some makeup on her face and brush the bits that need brushing. The biscuits and water have been topped up for me and off we go.
Thursday, December 10, 2015
So now begins mums last real crazy week before Christmas. She worked Mon- Weds and was on call on Monday night and got called into work at 11pm for a couple of hours. Thursday today was a day off which was nice, but she then starts Fri-Thursday of 7 days of evening shifts. Finally next week mum will get a 3 day weekend which will be fabulous. So mums posts for me might be at strange hours and hopefully we won't miss too many.
We hope you have some fabulous plans for the next week or so and not rushing round too much.

Work was ok, and she got to head home at 8pm. Now she is eating leftover salad on the couch while watching Antiques Roadshow. They are showing repeats from the year 2000, but mum doesn't care she loves that show and wishes she could find something valuable at a car boot show. She doesn't actually goes to car boot shows, but she does like to dig around in second hand shops sometimes. Such a middle aged lady!!
I have eaten my feast and am now curled up in my bed, snoring away. Hope you all get a comfy sleep tonight!!

Mum made it home by the early afternoon, and the clouds were clearing which was nice. So much rain lately, we are looking forward to some more settled weather. We do want some warm days before summer is over and passed us by.
So after a bit of fresh air, we have come in for dinner. Mum rings her family and chats to them on a Sunday evening, the dishes are done and a uniform is made ready for tomorrows work.
Hope you all had a fun Sunday too!!
Saturday, December 5, 2015
So the washing has been brought inside, the feast was served up for me. Mum grilled some lamb chops and served them with potato and corn for herself, with a little chocolate mousse as a treat after dinner. A whole lot of dishes were done and the Christmas decorations have been pulled from the cupboard. We are ready for decorating.
So now is relaxing time. Mum is watching The Way tonight and quite enjoying it. Then she has a good book to read and an early night planned as she has a big day planned tomorrow.
Hope you all had a lovely Caturday today!!
Friday, December 4, 2015
Then when she got home tonight she let me drink out of her water glass, which I then tipped over her and the couch and the remote controls. Then I sat on her lap for a cuddle and went to jump off, but slipped (maybe it was the slippery wet jeans), so I dug my claws in.
Oh boy - luckily it is the weekend and we have two days to make up.

Mum is pleased that I am so happy and comfy. Having a good bed and great sleep is a wonderful luxury, when we know that so many people and cats round the world don't have the pleasure of hours of comfortable sleep.
So sleep well my friends.
Monday, November 30, 2015
When she got it home she unpacked it and pretended that it wasn't meant for me. But I wasn't fooled. I ran over and climbed in it straight away. I did go to mums bed for a bit of a cuddle, but that only lasted my usual 10 minutes, and when mum got up in the morning, I was snuggled up in the bed, and when she got home and all evening. Finally a pet bed I will finally sleep in!
Great gift mum!

Mum and I had a little old sleep in today then it was too warm to stay in bed, so mum got up and put some more washing on. Today was sheets and towels, exciting stuff. A nice bagel for her brunch then she thought she would head out for a walk in the fresh air and to make the most of having both sunshine and warmth.She even broke out the birkenstocks, which made her realise how pasty her feet and legs look. Time to begin to look for a couple of things for Christmas. Did she find anything for anybody else - well no. Did she find a couple of things for herself - yes. She even got me an early Christmas present. I will show you tomorrow!!!

Caturday was sunny and breezy, so mum did load after load of load of washing, it being a pleasure to have it hanging outside in the fresh air. Mum did some dishes, and read her book in the sun.
She was trying to chase after me for some of the day as I have a rather large dingleberry hanging from my trouser pants. Thank goodness she has kept the camera away from that end of me, but it has made me rather uncomfortable and last night I left a smeary trail across her quilt - hence the washing.
I managed to stay far away from her and didn't let her catch me. She decided that she would pull out the big clothes peg (to put on my neck) and the scissors to cut the fur off tomorrow morning if she could to help me out, otherwise it would be a VET visit to get a summer bikini shave (for me - not her).
Mum headed out in the afternoon. She met a bestie for a nice and tasty dinner, it was a venison and pear burger that sounded better than it tasted. At least the fries were nice. Then mum and her bestie went off to see the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain. Mum was lucky and got to see them about 5 years ago, and it was just as good to see them again tonight. Check out their clips on you tube, and if you ever get the chance you should go and see them.
When mum got home, she noticed that my dingle berry was missing. It was gone from my trouserpants, and she searched around the house and can't see it lying anywhere.
Friday, November 27, 2015
Us ladies are relaxing tonight, so much so that mum fell asleep on the couch after dinner. Sigh - middle age is such an awesome phase. Maybe it is because she was tired from being awoken so early.
Thursday, November 26, 2015
Happy Thanksgiving for all of you celebrating. We hope you got to enjoy lots of yummy treats with your friends and family.

So now it is getting late and mum only had a chance to put a couple of things away and rinse some dishes. Tomorrow night will have to be busy then, with jobs done before she plants her butt on the couch.
Hope you got some relaxing done tonight. Oh and the noisy boy from next door, he is rather cute. Our upstairs neighbour is his nanny, and mum got to walk home with them tonight. When mum is there he is all shy and quiet.
