With all the rain the back garden is looking pretty green and lush. After downpours last night it only drizzled today, but the rain is due back tomorrow.
Mum got her worst nights sleep last night in ages. She did toss and turn until 3.30am which made the alarm call at 6am far too early. She did get to finish her book though. She went for a walk after work, and got groceries. She fed me my feast and then made herself some meatballs and salad for dinner with a big salad. She bought new seasons strawberries to snack on.
So mum had to avoid napping when she got home. Wish her luck getting to sleep tonight - I don't need her watching me for hours again.
It is a stormy view outside the windows this Sunday evening. Mum dragged herself out if bed, showered and dressed herself but that is it. Today has been a laaaaaaaazy one. She will tidy the kitchen tonight, but no other chores. She finished her book and watched some shows so that has been good because she had a long week.
It is blowing a gale outside today, so mums plans of hanging out the washing wasn't going to work. She got a wee sleep in stayed in her dressing gown until the afternoon. Then it was time to put the uniform back on and head out and brave the wind.
I am busy relaxing today - last night was hard. Mum went back into work from 11pm- 1am, then 2am-4am. She only slept from 6am-9am, then back to work for the afternoon. Luckily kill she can sleep in tomorrow as she is on an afternoon shift and then Saturday and Sunday she is free.
Also it was rubbish night which is a big night out for indoor outdoor cats, as we all go out and sniffles the bags and patrol our areas. So I is tired too.
This was mums view when she woke up this morning. I was asleep on the little chair. I had been up earlier, as you can tell by the gap in the curtains I have made. I like to check out my garden and watch the birdies. Then I nap - all day.
It was a little quiet start to the week today. Mum had a good day at work and enjoyed walking home in the sun with her shopping. Yet again she forgot to put her phone in her bag and although she missed checking the Internet at lunchtime, it was nice to be phone free. She left it on the charger tonight too.
This beautiful blossom was all in bloom today as mum headed off for a walk. She felt good this morning as last night she got a whole 8 hours if sleep. When she awoke the sun was shining and the birds singing.
Mum went for an afternoon stroll into town and to soak up some vitamin D. She got home by 4pm, in time to air the house for an hour, play in the garden with me, feed me my feast and bring in the washing. Now it has cooled down, the clouds have come up from the south and brought rain with them. So our doors and windows are closed again, I am snoozing on the bed and mum is watching Far From the Madding Crowd on the TV and eating chocolate chip biscuits .
Mum had a great night of sleep - she has the midnight to 3.40am sleep down pat. A pity about the rest of the night. Still she managed to get up early and make herself presentable and went to her course. It went well - interesting with good company and good quizzes and a great lunch.
Mum then went for a walk in the city where she wandered round aimlessly. She came home and nodded off on the couch by 6pm. She got my feast ready and had no energy to cook , but luckily pizza was at the house in an hour.
So she has a tummy full of cheesy,meaty goodness. She has watched the News and Modern Family and is thinking that she will get us girls tucked up in bed and snoozing by 10. Hopefully all night long.
How about you kitties - we hope you have had a lively Caturday.
Hi friends we finally got a photo posted. Mums shifts are over, and she has the weekend off but has to go to a 'study day' tomorrow. For 5 hours unpaid. Oh well.
So our fun Friday night is all about the chores. Mum needs to hoover and tidy and wash her uniforms. Yippee. Luckily she has a pile of leftovers to eat. Me - well I enjoyed my feast tonight as I was hungry.
We hope your Friday is going well with no dramas. The news is filled with storms and earthquakes and the most boring of all - our upcoming elections.
Just as mum had climbed into bed, relaxed and closed her eyes last night the call phone rang and mum had to get back up, put her clothes on andwent into work. She returned a couple of hours later, slept for two and then she was back in. So she could turn the phone off at 8am. She wishes she could have stayed up and been productive, but alas sleep was calling. I joined her and we napped a lot of the day away.
She did get up for the evening, and felt like some comfort food. So it was a quick lemon chicken risotto and a carrot/swede/parsnip mash. Tasty and enough leftovers for another 3 meals, all portioned off and ready for the next shifts.
So dishes are being done close to midnight and mum will attempt to sleep soon.
Mum is tired today. She managed to get four hours sleep last night and had an early start at work today. She is on call tonight so she retreated to her bed when she got home - such a Nana. I was happening an early feast and mum had leftovers from the other night.
We feel like we are moaning every day - please forgive us.
Sunday has finally rolled round. Mum finally drifted off to sleep around 2am. She was not thrilled that I chose to tell her loudly at 6.30am that the biscuit bowl was empty and that it would be prudent for her to arise and refilled it immediately. Of course I did not actually eat any and went back to bed cos I was tired.
Mum stayed in her bed as it was cold and read her book. She then decided to head into the fruit and vegetables market where she stocked up on carrots, parsnips, broccoli, swede, coriander, limes, tomatoes and a cucumber. Lots of vegetables for the week.
The restaurants were busy as families were out celebrating Father's day. Mum thought a lot about her own dad and how much she misses him.
Well this Caturday certainly has been a chilled one. Poor mum only got to go to sleep at 4am. She woke to her alarm at 8am and then fell asleep until midday. She then desperately wanted a nap but has fought it so that she can try and sleep tonight.
She washed and scrubbed and hovered this afternoon. Dinner was easy Ramen noodles and now it's time for ice cream.
I helped mum by showing her how to get some sleeps. We hope you all enjoy your Caturday and get lots of rest.
Goodbye winter, time for you to go niw, although we know that you have a tendency to hang around for some time to come.
Mum finished the night shift this morning. She always intends to stay up all day to reset her body clock, but somehow it is never possible. She had her breakfast out and then wandered home after 8am. She watched one of the Diana documentaries that have been on this week. So sad, and twenty years on it seems such a loss for her sons and tragic for her to be gone at only 36.
So now as our evening comes to a close mum is wide awake. So she is going to do some tidying up and read her book and hopefully get some sleep.
