Happy birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me - today I am Thirteen!!!
Do you like my present? Mum let me open Sharkie outside and I knew what to do straight away. I rolled around and scratched for ages. Mum said she did not expect him to be so big. Now he is living in the hallway and I am sure will scare mum tonight.
Mum might have to put up some old photos this weekend like this one of the poppies at our old place. The weather is grey and dull outside and I'm choosing to snooze the day away. Mum had a big old sleep in too, and has to go to work this afternoon. She made a big lunch of creamed sweetcorn and cheese toasted sandwiches for lunch and has some tasty pasta to take to work with her. Me - I had biscuits all day.
Mum has counted up and she has got only 11 hours sleep overnight in the past 4 nights. She got a few naps in the day but feels a bit like she has been tortured. She thinks parents must be super awesome for coming with little to no sleep most nights.
So tonight she is aiming for 7+ hours. Go mum. I'll try not to wake you up at 5am like this morning.
Mum got called in again early this morning which gave her the day at home. She was pleased to be able to share some afternoon sunbeams with me.
She also did some study. She is doing a small online course on ancient Egypt. She felt like learning something interesting. It is only for 6 weeks and she us enjoying all the reading, but not looking forward to the quiz at the end.
We had some sunshine today which was lovely. Mum had to get some sleep this morning as she had had to go into work overnight again. One more night and then she can rest properly. She did manage to get some washing on the line and do some other chores . she also joined me in the garden for a wee break.
Today it was pretty chilly with rain and it was a good day to just curl up and keep warm. Mum had to go into work several times so she spent the morning sleeping. I only woke her up 4 times to check she was ok. Now I'm tired.
Mum had an early bird start at work this morning. Boy it was chilly when she got up, she almost had to pull out the gloves to wear, but a brisk walk warmed her up. She finished early and was able to get home to me in enough time to get some uniforms washed and out drying on the line in the breeze.
Now we are relaxing and mum is trying to be zen and calm as she is on call for the next three nights and knows that she will not get much sleep or rest. I will be snoozing enough for the both of us.
Mum had the bad sleeps last night. She lay there willing herself to snooze off but it didn't really happen. She tossed and turned for hours, finally drifting off around 4am, getting only a couple of hours before the alarm went off.
So tonight she has kept herself busy, resisted napping, had a carb fulled dinner of bacon on toast, used left over bacon to make bacon and tomato toasties for her lunch tomorrow, watched some light comedy and avoided the news, watched her face and used some nice moisturizer, got her book ready, heated up the bed (it's been cold here tonight) and talked to me about not taking an hour for me to get settled. Fingers crossed she can get a good 6 hours of sleep.
Mum had to work today. She thinks it was a bad choice to pick up a shift on the morning that daylight savings went forward, as she got very little sleep. The good thing is that it will help her get into a rhythm while she adjusts and she doesn't have to go to work on Monday.
Oh man - mum found this instagram kitty Cheddar last night and can't stop checking out the website. First off she can't even think how they got their kitty to pose like that, and mum is jealous she didn't think of it first. Colour me jealous.
Mum was hanging out the washing this morning being watched by neighbour cat. We don't know his/her name or even which house they live in. We don't mind them being in the garden but we have caught them sneaking into our house.
