Mum was on call last night, and had to head to work at 2am and made it home 2 hours later. She got a few hours sleep before heading to work again at midday. The afternoon went quick and this time she got home before the rain started.
Our winter starts tomorrow, and the weather has promised a nice and chilly start to the new season. Mum made a nice roast dinner if chicken with roasted vegetables. Now the scented candles are lit and a movie is playing. I got a brush and some cuddles and mum has let me have the heater on tonight.
Best of all - us girls have a 3 day weekend. Yippee!!!
There would be no outsiding for me today. It was super wet and windy. Mum stepped outside after work and she got pounded by the rain and by the time she got home and was soaked through. She may have ruined her work shoes. She should have got a taxi home.
So mum has popped on her dressing gown and slippers and is warming up on the couch and she is letting me nap on her bed.
Mum had a stressful sleep last night. She tossed and turned until 1.30am aware that she had to be up at 6.30am to get ready for work. So of course she now is nodding off at 7pm on the couch. So she is thinking that she will try to have an early night tonight. At least she had leftovers for her dinner and the kitchen was cleaned last night, so there aren't many more chores to do.
I had a chicken and shrimp broth sachet for my dinner. I sucked up all the juice and left the meaty bits. I did enjoy it, but mum knows not to try it too often as next time she dishes it up for me I am likely to turn my nose up at it. It doesn't look like I am starving though does it?
Hello Mum I am glad you got home to see me. Mum had a day off and went out to meet a bestie for a tasty lunch. They had a Vietnamese Chicken salad for lunch, then did a little wander to the local shops. Mum stocked up on her candles and did mostly window shopping. She was glad to head home before 3pm when the school kids make the traffic super busy. Time to get home to me and I was pleased to see her. Us girls then had a good nap - well mum was pretending to read, but her eyes closed super quickly. She can fall asleep so easy at 5pm, and then will struggle at 10pm. She thinks that she would make a great cat.
After weeks of lovely weather the rain has arrived, although it is not too chilly. Mum made a winter mash for dinner with some chicken rissoles. Dinner is now made for the next two nights which makes work a bit easier, as she can then come home and relax. Living by herself it is often easier to make a couple of big meals during the week to last a couple of nights.
Our weather has been unseasonably warm and sunny. The sun has shifted though and we get less sun in our house or backyard, making the nights and mornings feel chilly. Mum went for a walk to the market today and enjoyed the warm rays. our fine spell is due to come to an end this week.
Mum has relaxed this weekend. she has read her books and so enjoyed not working.
Monday already here. Mum has had a good day at work. She came home and there was still some sunshine for a little bit. She got some tasty things to eat this week and made herself a nice dinner. It is a big night. She is going to put the laptop away and the phone down and watch the Game of Thrones final. She's excited to see what happens.
Me - I had a quiet day as usual. A little bit of outsiding and a little sleeping. Then a meet and greet when mum gets home.
Mum had a work day again today. There is something hard about getting up at 5am while the rest of the city slumbers. Still she is finished by 3pm and has time to chill out with me.
The young ones at work asked what mum is up to tonight. Mum laughed. After a long work day her Caturday night is chill. Dinner, a shower, some Tele then off to bed. Much like my night. My dinner and bathing are all done by 6pm!!
Now mum is to put the phone down and watch some Game of Thrones.
Mum went to the movies today to see All Is True, a movie about William Shakespeare and his life at home with his family. She enjoyed it very much, a good 4/5 although she and the other 12 patrons were annoyed by the one lady at the cinema who sat in the front row noisily eating lollies from a crinkly packet the whole way through and who was especially annoying at the sad and quiet scenes.
So she spent this night catching up on some Game of Thrones and and some Big Bang Theory final shows. So she let me watch some youtube cats. We had not seen this clever cat before. How lucky is he to have his own restaurant? We hope you have had a fun Friday night too.
Today was fine and mum enjoyed a sunny walk go work. It was a bit of a long day but went fast as mum was busy. Coming home the clouds were low and heavy looking, and luckily the rain only started as mum reached our door.
My day was busy. There was snoozing and the odd bit of sniffing round and checking out introoder smells. I really wanted mum to chat to me tonight, so we sat and she talked before she washed the dinner dishes. Do you like to have a catch up with your person too?
Mum made the bed on Caturday and forgot to put my bag/bed back on top. So I came and looked for her and meowed until she fixed it. She would love a nice tidy clear bed, but she realises that my love is strong.
Happy mothers day to all the mum's out there. I let mum choose herself something nice, and she chose this grey and black scarf. It has animal prints on it, mum says they are on almost everything this winter.
Caturday was quiet at our place today. After mums big day out yesterday she wanted a quiet one today. She slept in and then got up and had soup and toast for lunch while catching up on some shows. She chose to go out and gets some fresh air with a walk, and do some jobs just as a big Pride parade started in town. She got stuck could not get across to the supermarket and the side of town she needed to get to. Instead she did some jobs in this side of town. The spare keys she needed, and lots of little things she didn't need. Ingredients were chosen so that chicken tacos could be made for dinner. Yum for her. Mum put some fresh apple in hers, as she likes the mix of sweet and savory, not traditional she is sure but sometimes it is good to experiment. Now it is time for a movie - Ladies in Black, and she thinks there is a block of chocolate that might need to be opened.
So we hope that you are all enjoying a nice Caturday and doing something fun.
We had an awesome day. It was sunny, it was mum's day off, mum had bacon and Waffles for lunch, she finished her book, she gave me pats, she gave me fancy feast, she ate a delicious Vietnamese dinner , she drunk wine with friends, she went and saw The Proclaimers play live, she sung and she danced. Now she's knackered.
Mum was glad that today was her day off. There were clouds, but lots of sun too, so washing was popped outside and even the sheets got dry. She washed dishes as well and sorted some stuff out, and popped all the rubbish bags out to be collected.
When she hoovered, I raced outside to hide from the sucky monster and get some fresh air.
Mum ate her lunch and watched the midday news to get a wee glimpse of baby Archie. How sweet and happy the family looked. Good luck to them!!
She spent the afternoon walking into town and got herself a nice top to wear, although at first she tried on a top thinking it was her size and just about got stuck in it, only to find out it was a size too small. Luckily they had one in the right size that she bought (it was payday after all).
Mum got home while it was still sunny, but soon enough it clouded over and chilled down, and is raining now. So nite nite from us!!
The mumster was on call last night. She went to work at midnight and was back at 1am. I was a good girl and stood watch at the letterbox the whole time. Her phone went off again at 3am and she was gone until 5am. This time I napped on her bed and jumped on her for a cuddle when she came back to bed.
I have been a wreck all day and even slept through fancy feast time. Mum got a few hours sleep this morning. She took some leave this afternoon which was good as she needed a wee nap. So us girls are back off to sleep now. Nite nite.
We were sad to hear this week that one of the greatest cat bloggers Daisy has passed. Although Daisys mom stopped posting on Daisy the Curly Cat blog several years ago, we will never forget all the smiles they brought us. Miss Daisy could wear a costume like no other cat and her ability to pose and ham it up with her brother Harley were legendary. This post about kissing spots is one of our all time faves. Thanks for all the smiles Miss Daisy - we hope that you can rest now at the Bridge.
