We were asked about the new landlord. Well our current landlady is keen to have the house listed by the 23rd of Feb. Yhen if it sells you are given 42 days notice if you have to leave. Mum has two holidays booked in March and lots of weeks working between then and now.
The house might sell to a new landlord or to someone who would move in themselves or it might not sell, although the housing market is going crazy at the moment. Mum had just thought she should begin the process and did not expect to find somewhere on Sunday. She is nervous that she has made a good decision. At the moment though she wanted to the best thing for us, so that we could stay together.
So fingers crossed it will also work out for us. She has booked movers so doesn't have too much else to organise.

The real estate market in our city has gone bonkers , both for buying and rentals. 10 years ago people would advertise their home for rent, you could turn up and if you were presentable you could pick or choose which place you would like.
Now places get listed on line, 80 people will show up and the landlord has their choice of who they want. Our cities paper said last week that this year there are 50% less listing service than last year. Of the 70 places listed only 2 would allow pets too.
Our new place has a garden for me to dig around in and sleep in and we are allowed to put a cat door in. It gets a lot more afternoon sun too.
Thanks for crossing your paws for us.

So it has been a stressful 24 hrs for mum as it is a tricky time of year. There are lots of people looking for homes and students are all returning to university increasing the competition. She doesn't know what our plans will be. So please forgive us if we miss some days, as soon much will need to be organized.
We hope you are all having a nice Caturday.

Yesterdaywas just my senior check at the vets. So far so good with just a repeat blood test and teeth cleaning to look forward to now.
Thursday, January 26, 2017
My vet is lovely, and I was a good girl. I got shaved in two places. Once in my neck for a blood test and then in my trouser pants for a cat Brazilian. Mum will keep my dignity and not show you photos of that. Let's just say it is much breezier and tidy round that end now.
Ohhh and good news. I have lost 300gr - it has only taken 6 years.
I have to get my teeth done which has been on hold for a couple of years as I have a heart murmur. But it might be done in March when I go to the cattery.
Mum was surprised that I was extremely smoochy last night and snuggled all night with her.

Oh can you see in mums photo where the city pigeon was sheltering from the horrible rain this evening?

I had made myself a nest on mums jacket on the couch. I was happier to get the fancy feast than to see mum.
Hope you are having a fun Caturday!!

Mum says I must have been a bit freaked out as when she woke up in was all snuggled up next to her. I needed an extra cuddle in the morning too.

We are sure whatever weather we get is nothing compared to how chilly it is in the Northern Hemisphere. We just don't seem to get more than two fine days in a row. Traditionally February has good weather, just as the kids head back to school.

So then mum did not get much sleep as I rolled over all night.
So today she went out to meet a friend for the movies, only find out that she had booked the tickets for Thursday by accident. The tickets were all sold out, but mums friend organised some in town and the went and saw Lala Land which they did enjoy.
When they came out of the cinema it was raining and cold, so the went to a cheap Malaysian restaurant for rice and Satay.
Mum was glad to get home after a big day out. I was glad to see her, I have meowed lots at her until she fed me my feast, and have now rushed back onto my bag.

Today was mums day off so we had a sleep. The washing machine worked overtime as mum got the loads out on the line even including her work sandals which were rather stinky.
She had a yummy chicken salad sandwich for lunch and then went for a walk. She did a few jobs and then went to the library before heading home. So now us girls are chilling out getting ready for Caturday.

Mum and her friends were excited as they went with lots of hipsters to the Botanical Gardens, where there were food trucks meant to be serving dinner. For some reason the trucks were a no go. So all fifteen of them went to a local pub and had dinner there. And it was rather tasty too.
Mum us home now. She has fed me my feast, got the washing in and got the call phone on ready to go.

This afternoon us girls have been chilling. The clouds have rolled in so mum decided to stay home and save some money as she is going out tomorrow afternoon.
She thought you might like to see some of the flower photos she took in her friends garden last week. Her cellphone takes better photos than the camera.
Have a nice Caturday - do something fu

Over the staycation she watched a few episodes of Horders and this has motivated her. She has donated some stuff to the charity shop and thrown a couple of bags of stuff out.
Last year she added a couple of new recipes to her repertoire- middle eastern meatballs and rice and a chicken broccoli Alfredo pasta. Both quick and easy with lots of vegetables and she is able to make enough for a few meals in one go. So rather than being too ambitious by trying to make a new recipe a week, once a month is about right for her.
She liked the idea she read about on the Cup of John blog. Rather than focusing on the things you would like to improve in the year ahead like be more active, lose weight, save money etc...., they made a resolution to do something fun for the year. So you could choose to read more books, watch more movies, go for more walks or take more photos. Mum thinks that she will try and read more (she does read a lot but still finds herself wasting time watching silly shows). Me - well I am going to spend more time taking naps.
How about you and your person - what fun things would make you happy in 2017?

As she arrived home she noticed the grey skies on the horizon. Within 10 minutes they were covering the whole skies and freezing rain. By 7pm the temperature had dropped to 8deg and by bedtime it was 6deg, and remember we are meant to be mid summer and complaining about the hots. Not having the heater on and mum took this picture of me snuggling between her knees to keep myself warm.
So mum was texting her family who are in Adelaide Australia, where it was a tropical 36 degree. Somewhere in the middle would be nice.
So we are hoping our weather settles soon before the summer is over.
