This is mums mum and dad on their wedding day. Dad was 19 and mum was only 17 - and they had to get a court order in order to get married, and they did not have their parents permission. Their landlords were their witnesses with only a couple of mums sisters there. Mum was pregnant with big uncle and their marriage lasted for 44 years until Mum died in 1995. They sure look sweet in this photo - quite the lookers!!
Dad was lucky. He found a lovely lady to love in the last year of his life. So there is still hope in your 70's of finding true love. She looked after him and made him very happy. How lucky to have two lovely ladies in his life.
We love you Gdad.

RIP Gdad - we love you.

So hope you all get more sleep than us. It is getting a bit cloudier and cooler here, so should be good for sleeping tomorrow.

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.

I helped her with making the bed. She smoothed out her new quilt - can you see me helping? I am cleverly hidden. She is not sure about the quilt - all a bit modern geometric 20 year old uni student, but mum likes the pink and yellow highlights and enjoys a bit of colour in the heat of the summer.
Hope you all managed to do some fun things today.

I was back to helper cat duties as soon as I got home. I helped mum to make the bed and do some of the chores. She does need to do a bit more tidying up - things are out of control. So she bought some new rubbish bags today, ready to get rid of some junk and make some room in the drawers and shelves. A spring clean - in mid summer.
Nice and hot today, and we can hear the cricket being played down the road from us. Australia vs NZ - our favorite competitors. So mum has time now to sit and read for a few minutes, then she is going to cook up some chicken and veg for her dinner before getting ready to go for an afternoon shift. So plenty of time for a snooze for me.

Mum was glad the afternoon was good, she got most of her washing on and was able to air out the house, always good after a few days locked up.
She was glad to be able to have a few days away with the family, and although it was hot and sticky, she got in a couple of walks and time with everybody.
So we have lots of catching up to do!!

Mum had dried this quilt in the sun, and folded it up and left it on my bench. I curled up on it straight away and claimed my spot. Mum did bring it inside at 10pm. So I went outside her bedroom window and howled - at midnight, 1am and 3am. I wanted it to stay outside with me. Mum knew not to give in - giving in would mean she would have to leave the quilt outside for ever, and I would continue to howl. I know I am lucky and get the chance to sleep outside in the fresh air and stay outside all night if I want.

We also wanted to share with you our friends a little bit of what is happening in our life at the moment. You see we will have a little break this week and see you next week. Since the new year, mum got told that her dad Gdad is sick. He is at home, and pottering round as best he can, but mum needs to be able to go and spend time with him. So this week she is taking some time off, and for the next wee while she will have to go away and spend time with the family every couple of weeks . I will have to go to the cattery, while not my favorite place, mum knows I am safe there.
We hope you can bear with us at this time. We promise not to drop off the blogosphere, just to slow down for a little bit.
