So tonight is cold and mum has put the heating on, she has cooked her dinner and dished up her feast. Time for a couple of shows and mum might head to bed early tonight to catch up some zzzs. She certainly needs her beauty sleep. You can tell that I get enough of that - cos I'm so pretty!!

So she is now up and showered, dressed and given me my feast. She made herself a tasty dinner and is now doing a couple of chores before switching the phone on again at 7pm. Last night on call, and she feels better after sleeping today away. It was a shame though as the sun shone most of the day. At least I got to enjoy it.

She got into town and did a few jobs. A nice custard square was bought at the bakery for a treat, she found a couple more little gifts for a friends birthday present, and bought a couple of winter pillows for our couch. Mum then headed home to feed me my feast, and she was only in the door for five minutes and the rain started again, and hasn't stopped in the past two hours. So another rainy night is in store for us.
Me - well I'm just chilling on this Caturday. Hope you all have something fun planned for your Caturday.

Mum has to work on call all weekend, and the weather is meant to be dreary, so she has stocked up on a pile of books and lots of tv shoes and dusted off the slippers so relaxing will be in order. She likes that she can shelve any other plans and just take it easy between call ins.
Hope you have a relaxing plan for the weekend too!!!

Mums evening shift went well, and she was glad it was over. Then she headed home via the supermarket, as it is exactly half way between the hospital where she works and our house.
So now we are taking it easy before bed time. I have had my feast, and she has had some nibbles on little treats - so us girls are good. Hope you are having a good Thursday too.

She had a good day at work, and even better when she left work she checked her lotto ticket and she won $33, so she bought a bag of sweets and a pile of fancy feast - woo hoo!!
Then when she got home she picked up the uniforms to wash, and accidentally washed the clean one she had put aside for tomorrow, so now only has her dirty one to wear tomorrow. It is now winter time here, and we don't have a dryer so it takes two days to dry the tunics, but mum can always get a fresh top at work tomorrow.
Hope your day has gone well and you got some good mixed in with the not so good.

Hope you all got to sleep where you fancied last night too.

Today was the chilliest one we have had in ages. Tonight it is 4.5 deg (C), so mum is getting ready to snuggle in bed with her book. She is pretty sure I will be on the way to visit her and sit on the bed soon. The day was quiet as the rain was falling, so mum stayed home with her book, and this evening was taken up with phone calls to friends, so I got to sit on the couch close to mum.
Hope you all got a snuggle today too.

Today we were expecting horrid weather, but the day started off with blue skies and a bit of a breeze. So mum got herself up early and headed out to visit a friend and have a wander. They did quite a walk though town and had a good old chit chat as they walked. Mum had the best lunch she has had in ages, nice tasty sausages with a potato and kale mash, with gravy and cranberries. She said it was delicious , filling and value for money. The best lunch out she has had in ages.
So after a wander, mum went to the library, and found a couple of interesting new books to read. She stopped off at the supermarket and then got home in time for feast time and a bit of relaxing.
How about you guys, did you have a good Caturday? Got some fun things planned?

So mum and her brother grabbed some lunch, and enjoyed the afternoon sun. Mum searched through the family photos, as she is going to scan some in for the family. Then it was time for the flight back. A bit bumpy each way, and it was nice for her to get home to me, just in time for feast time.

Mum had a long day at work, so she was happy to come home and sit on the couch with me this evening. We had our dinners and relaxed. Washing and dinner were done and before you know it, it is time to pack up and head off to bed.

Mum worked all day, and visited the supermarket on the way home. Chicken and potato salad is an easy after work dinner, with some kiwi fruit and pears for supper. She gave me a fancy feast to fill my tummy, so us girls are happy.
Saturday, May 14, 2016
The girls had a good old catch up, then mum and one friend went to see a little kiwi movie that was ok - nothing special. Then mum made her way back into town. She popped into the supermarket to get some rolls for her lunch tomorrow and something easy for her dinner. Then home to light some candles, feed me my feast and relax for the evening. Mum has to work tomorrow so no big night out for her.
Hope you all did some fun things today and had fun on your Caturday.

Mum has to work on Sunday, so Caturday is going to be all about the fun. She has things planned, places to go and people to see. Me - I have some snoozing to do, just like her.
Thursday, May 12, 2016
On the way to work, as she stood at the crossing waiting for the lights to change, she felt an earthquake ripple through the ground underneath. Not too strong, and it was based a long way away from us, but enough for her to notice. Work was ok, she made it through and got to come home to me.
I only sat outside quickly then rushed inside to beg for my dinner. She gave me a feast, and then made herself some lemon chicken and rice for dinner. She listened to Tom Hanks on BBC Desert Island Discs, another great interview that usually manages to make mum smile. So time for some relaxing before she switches the call phone on at 10 am. Wish her luck!!

There is a tinge of Autumn in the air today. We woke with low cloud where we could not see the hills, and the sun has swung round in the sky. Mum was glad for a day off again to restore the spirit and body. We slept in , and then mum pottered round for the day as the plumber was due at 2pm and true to their word, he even knocked on the door at 1.50pm and was done and cleaned up in half an hour after replacing our kitchen taps. Awesome.
Mum did a bit of housework, with a much needed tidy up. She has moved a lot of the summer clothes away, and moved the winter clothes out and ready. She wears a bit of a winter uniform, her fave jeans (black, blue, grey and burdgundy), with a variety of tops, a warm cardi, scarf and boots. It all mixes and matches and mum thinks suits her more than summer clothing. Time to sort out some old stuff that mum has for years, and is ready to discard.
So now off to bed. Mum is reading a fascinating book A Decade of Hope which is written ten years after 9/11 and is the story of lots of people, from those in the towers to the first responders and family members who lost their loved ones on that day. It not only talks about that terrible day, but about the impact it has had on their families and what they think about the political and social implications of terrorist attacks. It has bough tears to my eyes many times, and is deeply moving. Most of all it is a reminder to tell your loved ones that you love them each time to see them.
So mum is determined to not sit on the couch too long each night watching shows she has little interest in, but to head to bed early and snuggle up with her book, and with me if it is cool enough for me to want to sleep with her. So night night.

Dinner was a feast for me, and for her some reheated mashed potatoes, chicken and broccoli smothered in gravy. Supper was a couple of gold kiwifruit (a yellow coloured sweeter fruit) and some crunchies for me. So our tummies are full.
Sunday, May 8, 2016
Work was busy busy so mum was glad to get home and park herself on the couch where she snoozed like a good middle aged lady, falling asleep after her dinner. There were a couple of phone calls, to a bestie and a sister in law, and then a bit of tv shows before parking herself back in bed with a book.
Dinner was a feast for me, and mum reheated some cooked chicken and mashed potato with some broccoli, cooked with a squeeze of lemon over it and a sprinkle of salt, which mum is loving at the moment. She is trying to eat a few more veg and lots of fruit and feeling better for it. That and the maltesers she had as well made for a tasty meal.
By the way the answer to yesterdays quiz was D - thanks to all who guessed correctly.

Mum does call me monkey quite often, a couple of times a day. I don't see the similarity, but they are kind of cute.
Do you have a nickname?
Sunday, May 1, 2016
It was another lovely sunny day in the city, but the wind was up a bit more than usual. Mum took herself out for a walk, which she enjoyed. She often has a sore back and hips, and sometimes feel stiff at the beginning of the walk, but after about 15 minutes loosens up and begins to enjoy it more.
She walked beside the beach and then went to the Warehouse, our local sort of bargin store. She found a big fold up hamper for her shoes which was nicer than the one she was using and a bargin at 50% off. A couple of tshirts and a cute pair of pyjama bottoms went into her bag.
She also popped into the supermarket and got some stuff, but didn't feel like cooking when she got home, so just nibbled on lots of stuff, and now has veg and chicken for her dinner tomorrow night. Me well I had my feast and some new biscuits, which I enjoyed tonight but who knows tomorrow.
Hope you all enjoyed your Sunday and your tails are safe.
