Mum went through the supermarket tonight, she loves a late night visit there. No crowds and she can be in and out in five minutes picking up a few supplies. Not good for the budget or the waistline but oh well.
Monday, June 27, 2016
So mum was pleased that dinner was last nights leftovers, and the relaxing could begin straight away. She was tired, as sleep still eludes her - for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons is that now I am a permanent bed buddy. I climb over her before she goes to sleep, and in the middle of the night she usually awakes to turn off and finds me pinning her into an awkward position on the bed. Thus the winter tussle to take over the bed begins. This is the look I give her when she is settling down at night - in my spot. I believe you might call it a death stare.

Mum did go out for brunch with a bestie, for a bit of mince on toast by the seaside. Mum then went window shopping in town for a bit of a walk around, then off to the supermarket. She didn't buy too much as she was very much needing the toilet, and with a five minute walk home and then 50 steps up to our house, she knows she needs to hurry if she feels that way. Luckily she got home in time - just.
She had an easy dinner, a roast chicken with some carrots/parsnip/turnip mash and some broccoli, so enough servings of veg for her today. The best thing is leftovers will do for the next two nights, which is always good.
So us ladies are back to relaxing - hope you got to take it easy too over the weekend.

She walked home to get some fresh air and was walking past the National War Memorial which is just around the corner from our house. At 5pm each night just under the Bell Tower, the last post is played by the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior as the flags are lowered. It is moving to hear and mum was glad that she took the ten minutes to sit and listen.
So a quiet evening at home, and mum is hoping that tonight she finally gets to sleep. This nightshift has muddled her sleeping pattern still but hopefully her clock will be reset after the weekend.

So she has woken up today and still feels like she could sleep for days. Night shift has mucked her body round terribly this time. She has to work an afternoon shift today, so hopefully will sleep through the night tonight and by the weekend should have returned to normal.
Our lavender if having a little bloom outside in the middle of winter. It has been quite mild here with temperatures around 15 deg C. We haven't really had any cold spells this winter yet, although we are sure they are coming. We only get snow once every ten years or so in our city so are lucky to just get lots of grey, windy and wet weather.

So mum dragged herself out of the house and took a walk, and now it is a quiet night at home. We look forward to gaining some more daylight each day as we step back to summer. Just some cold and wintry weeks to get through first.

Our evening was quiet, she chatted to a few friends and now it is the last couple of episodes of Vikings Season 4, and she might try and get a few hours sleep overnight to get back into a normal pattern which will be hard as she feels wide awake.
Mum does find it a bit amusing at work when people tells her she looks tired on nightshift, as she thought she was wide awake and doing fine, and maybe this is just how she looks - tired all the time.

So there were jackhammers operating during the morning, but mum did manage to snooze off and on during the day. She made herself a tasty dinner tonight and is relaxing a bit before heading off to work again.
Hope you got to do something fun today on your Caturday.

So today was devoted to mooching round and not moving far. Mum stayed in her pyjamas til mid morning and although she was thinking about going into town, she decided to stay home and save some money. Good on you mum.

We are lucky and have had some fabulous winter days full of sunshine and warmth. The cold end of the season has yet to strike us, but we are sure there will be some more bad weather in store before spring returns.

I stayed on mums bed between midnight and 6.30am when she got up. I was on her bed when she got home, joined her for dinner and company until 6pm when I took myself off to bed again. Ahhh winter - 22 hours of sleep a day. Mum thinks I a hibernating bear instead of a pussy cat.
Hope you all got lots of snoozing done today too.

She had made a plan to go and meet a friend for lunch, and was thinking about getting some flea treatment. The weather was a bit horrid here this morning, with big rains looming, so she texted her friend who lives near a vet, to see if she could pop in and pick her up some treatments before they met up.
Mums friend took a while to reply, but said sure. Mum didn't want to put her out, and was grateful when she showed up at the cafe with some Advantage flea treatment. She said she was a bit amazed at the coincidence, as she was just heading out her gate to go to her vets and get some flea treatment for her cat. Great minds think alike.
It was a good lunch out, but the weather had turned to rain, so mum was glad to make it home early with some groceries, and sit on the couch next to me.

Once the chores were done, she left her jacket at home and popped on her sunglasses and headed out for a walk around the waterfront. By 4pm it was getting chilly, so she knew it was time to head home and bring all the washing in.
Dinner was easy for her and a feast for me. Curtains were closed off by 6pm, and mum put the heating on as the temperature had dropped. A few programs on the dvr were watched, and mum watched the end of the All Blacks Vs Wales rugby game. So sorry Welsh boys, we know you were winning up til half time, but we don't think we had it in you to go the distance and by the end you looked tired (our team won).
Hope you all have a lovely Caturday too and got some sunshine wherever you are.

It was a good evening for mum to feed me my feast early, she had nodded off on the couch, but I meowed at her until she woke up and dished me up my dinner. She then heated up some chicken soup and bread for herself. Then she had a couple of oranges - she loves the American Navel Oranges that are imported down under. Good vitamin C for the winter. It is funny that we ship Oranges and grapes to NZ, and send our apples and lamb out to the world, as well as many other items.
Hope you are all ready for the weekend - it all starts now!!

We feel like we are both hibernating on the couch at the moment, but winter can feel like that with the dark long evenings. It is hard to believe that the shortest day of the year will be upon us in a few weeks and the days will again begin to get longer.
Hope you all have a lovely evening too.

Mum had a busy on call night last night and got home just after 5am. It is then quite hard to trick your body into sleeping for a couple of hours, then mum got up and had a shower and a little lunch relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. Washing was done and then mum had to head into work. After work she was a bit knackered, so an easy chicken and ready made salad was bought for dinner and us girls had another quiet evening. In truth the only type we are having lately. Food, tele, reading and then to bed seems to be the order of the winter for mum. Food, sleeping and a quick walk outside for me.
Do you have a naughty spot too?

Mum had a nice day off today. A little sleep in, a little salmon toast for breakfast, a walk in the sunshine. She was shopping for a raincoat, but found a warm jacket instead. Oh well. She fed me a feast and made herself some chicken and pasta for her dinner.
3 days off was lovely - thank you Queenie for having a birthday and giving us a day off to recover. Cheers to you!!

Mum stopped off at the supermarket and got some groceries and then came home to give me my feast and we have snuggled on the couch enjoying the heater.
Saturday, June 4, 2016
We are lucky and have three days to enjoy each others company and three days of sunny days forecast. Of course with sunny days come chilly nights but we are enjoying the opportunity to snuggle down at night. I am still not sleeping with mum yet, although as soon as it gets real frosty and drops to 0 deg (C), mum expects to hear my footsteps up the hallway and jumping onto her bed.
Hope you have all had a good Caturday and enjoyed yourselves.

Yippee it is the weekend!! 3 days off for us to share.

Oh and she bought a print at the art show. She will take a photo tomorrow when there is some sunshine and show you all.
