 So mums decided we're keeping the quilt, especially as she left it on the bed and we slept under it last night.  I'm allowed the bag it came in too.  

She had a day off today, and went to the mall, but only spent 45 minutes there before heading home.  She let me have dinner at 2.20pm and then we snuggled on the bed while mum finished reading her book.  Its been raining and so it was time for soup and toast for her dinner, and a feast for me.

 A couple of weeks ago mum wrote about the new bed cover she had ordered.   Two days after ordering,  the company offered 20% off, so mum emailed them and they replied within an hour, already refunding that sum to mums credit card.  Great customer service.

Mum received her quilt late last week, and decided today make a toasty winter bed.  As soon as she opened it she realized that it was too small.  Even though she had ordered and paid for the large, they had sent her the small.  She emailed them again, and they said that they had sold out in the large and would refund mum to send it back, or offer her a $50 refund if she wanted to keep it.  

She's somewhat annoyed, and did email them again to say that the large is still listed for sale on their website and will await their reply.  The thing is mum kind of likes it, and i jumped on it as soon as she spread it out on the bed.

Leakage Update

 Last night mum had a text from her landlord to say that the tenants upstairs had a leak, and was there any signs of leakage in mums kitchen?  Mum said no  but this morning she rembered the leak on the bed from several weeks ago and emailed the picture.   She said that she did wonder if it could have come through the light fitting,  but there were no signs of leaking any other time.  

So it looks like I am not to blame and mums instincts were right.

 So i helped my mum to relax today.  She slept in and relaxed alternating between reading her book, looking at her phone, playing with me and watching some shows.   It was raining off and on, and the air was chilly so mum decided not to go anywhere .  I took a bundle of naps and spent 90 minutes begging for my dinner until mum got up to feed me.  

Monday, May 9, 2022


 It's been a while since we have had a solid rainy day, and today it has rained since mum got up, and now before midnight it is still going.  Luckily there was a small break in the precipitation while mum got the groceries.   She made herself a tasty butter chucken and rice for dinner and fixed me some fancy feast.  She has a meal plan sorted for the rest of the week now.

Luckily tomorrow is a day off for mum.  Dhe has only a couple if chores planned,  and lots of relaxing with me organized.   My favorite kind of day.

 Mum thought she'd got the cutest video of me and a butterfly.   Apparently not.

 Is it sad that mum is considering going to bed on Friday night at 7pm?   To be fair she has got up today and yesterday at 5.40am on about 4 hrs sleep.  Also she envies  my 23 hour a day sleep habit.  

She did go to bed early.  Lights were out at 8pm and she slept until 7.30am the next day, well done mum.

 Mum needed this tonight.  It made her smile all evening.

 Mums alarm belted out its siren call this morning at 6am and it was dark, and all mum wanted to do was roll over and keep snoozing.  She did get up and face the world and felt better after her shower.

Coming home at 5.45pm the skies were darkening, and mum had forgotten to leave a light on for me.  The seasons are turning, but it is unseasonably warm at the moment. 

Mum has a nice small surprise today too.  She ordered a new bed cover last weekend,  and then it popped up today discounted a further 20%.  She emailed the company to ask, and they replied within a few hours and refunding mum the 20% straight away.  For once, she was impressed with customer service.

 Mum went to work at midday today and was glad when work was over.  She went to the supermarket and got most of what she needed, but she will have to go back tomorrow to get some chicken as the supermarket was sold out.  She feels like a chicken noodle stirfry for tomorrows dinner, its been a few weeks since she made one.  With groceries being so expensive,  she tries to stick to a meal plan.  She has all the lunches sorted for the week.  She's got all mine sorted too.

 So no dramas or puddles today.  Mum still isn't convinced that I did it, but she thinks she didn't do anything.  

So mum got up and went for a walk to meet a bestie.  The day was overcast and windy, but warm. First they went to a local pasta shop,  where mum had a delicious cabonara and an orange soda.  They then went to the local oldies cinema to see the new Downton Abbey movie.  It was a bit predictable,  but had a few tears and lots of laughs.  It was lovely to see all of those lovely faces again, and as always the clothes and hair were gorgeous.   It felt like visiting with old friends again.  A good autumnal afternoon treat.

Now its a relaxing evening for us.  Leftovers for dinner tonight for mum, a feast for me.  Mum is now washing her face, and getting her uniform ready for tomorrow,  so I am purring knowing bedtime is close.

 So - sorry about the graphic photo.   Mum went to come to bed this morning and noticed this rather large spot on the bedcover.   She was genuinely surprised, as she had heard no noise from the bedroom and i was sleeping quietly behind the heater.  She was so shocked that she even turned all the lights on to check that there was no leak from the flat upstairs.  No leak from there, and mum wasn't leaking so she figured that it must have come from me.

So mum thinks I must have had an accident - the first in my fifteen years.  She knows that things happen in your senior years, so she gathered up all of the covers and remade the bed.  Half were washed today and the next lot tomorrow.   Luckily mum has a lot of bedcovers.  She checked I was ok, as thats the most important thing.  I'm good, eating and drinking as usual and getting lots of sleep, and love from mum.

 This is the longest run of sunny days that mum has encountered on her days off.  She met a bestie for a lunch where mum and her had a lovely natter and then wandered through many of the shops of the city.   Mum only managed to buy a hand cream but liked to look at the new things out for winter.

Tonight is somewhat cooler, so the heaters are on and i am snuggled on the mama bed nice and early.

No Clue

 Mum has no idea what the plant is called.  Her brain has never been able to process plant names,  card games or chess.  She just likes to take photos of plants on her walk home, and even in deep autumn some are still beautiful. 

We are lucky that our days have been beautiful,  but the nights are getting chilly now.  It is the first time that towels are not drying on the line outside and need some time in front of the heater.
