Super Hottage Nightshift

We have been lucky and have had more of a week of super hottage - well hot for us with it reaching round 25 deg C most days, which for our city is pretty solid summer hot weather.  I have spent a lot of time out on the deck, especially now that the neighbor has finished with his painting and it is quiet again.  Which mum is grateful for as tonight she starts a stretch of nightshift.  It is the worst trying to sleep during the day when it is hot outside - you feel like a six year old sent to bed far too early.  So hope you all get some sleep tonight and think of all those workers keeping things going in your cities and towns.

Oh - thank you for the concern about the earth quake that Christchurch experienced yesterday and was on the news around the world.  The good thing was that the earthquake was not in our city, a long way away from us.  We heard there were no injuries but people are obviously a bit nervous after it, as it has been a couple of years since they had one so big.


  1. Ah! What a lovely start to my day Poppy!x
    A lovely photo of you..And, the sun's out
    in all it's glory! :). But, l still had to
    scrap the ice off the car..The silly weather
    man says it's gonna be nice to~day and tomorrow,
    rain on Wednesday! :(. HaHa! What does he know!

    Pleased to hear the earthquake was not anyway
    near you..And, that everyone was o.k. We had it
    on the news over here to!

  2. I'm glad you weren't near the earthquake, Poppy! And also glad that no one was hurt.

  3. Poppy, dear, do be a good girl and purrr your mum to sleep this afternoon. And remember that while purrring in a person's ear helps them doze, fuzzy feline bodies make them skritch.

  4. hasn't Feb been glorious. Night shift must sure know around sleep routines.

  5. Poppy, look after your mum. - she is working hard so you have lots of money to buy your feast. We all depend on people who work at night to keep us all healthy and safe. We are glad the earthquake was far from you but we still think of the poor people who had to experience it.

  6. New Zealand sounds like such a nice country in which to live, meteorologically speaking. Here in southern Alberta, 25 degrees Celsius is balmy; you start to sweat when it gets into the high thirties and low forties. I am glad that no one was hurt in the earthquake in Christchurch. It must have been frightening for them.

  7. Beautiful Christchurch has certainly had its share of temblors! We are glad you live where you are more safe.

  8. We is happy to hear the quake wasn't near you and no one was seriously injured. Hope you and mum gets all the sleep you needs. Our mom bean is some impressed that your mum can do the night shifts. It's just after 8 p.m. here and she is ready for bed!
