 You saw my movie at the weekend of me chewing on the green grass in the weekend.   It's something I like to do.  Mum thinks I like it because it's tasty.  I'm seldom sick after eating grass, mum thinks I like the roughage and need my fiber.  Just like she needs to eat her greens too.

Autumnal Evening

 After a rainy but warm day the skies are clearing, dragging in the cooler weather.  Streaks of Grey and orange lit up the skies before it got dark tonight.  
Mum tries to keep dinner simple and quick, tonight was a simple tray bake.  Kumera and sausages baked for 20 minutes, then chopped broccoli, red onion +red pepper mixed in.  Olive oil and lemon squeezed on top with salt and pepper and back into the oven for another 20.  Mum said it was delicious and gave her leftovers for another meal.  

I had a feast - it was a good one with lots of gravy.  Time to snooze now.

 Well it's been a quiet day here.  Mum stayed home with me and we just chilled.  It was windy and cool outside and mum put her slippers on and didn't move further than from the bedroom to the living room.  She did venture outside to put the rubbish out and to feed the birds.

I had a quiet day today too and did much the same as mum.  Purrfect.

Signs of Winter

 So there have been signs of winter creeping in.  It could be the dark mornings or nights, it could be the coldest night of the year.  Mum says it is me rediscovering my heated bed.  First time mum has plugged it in since October 2020.   I have been in it all night and all day.

 On the way to work this morning there was a large rainbow sitting right over mums side of town.  Such a pretty sight to start the day.

Mum got home last night and found the present i left her on the bed.  Dead mousie number 2.  I'm teaching her to hunt.

Mum was at her friends house last week and saw there beautiful chicken just sitting quietly in the garden.  Such beautiful feathers, mum never knew that chickens could have such dark iridescent plumage.

 Mum took this picture on her way to work during the week.  This morning it was not quite so clear.  At 6.20am as she left, it was drizzling and dark.  Still its only a 30minute walk to work.  Time to listen to a podcast and think about the supermarket shopping list.  Mmmm - nachos for dinner.

 Another quiet Caturday here at chez Q.  Mum was working the early shift up at 5am.  Still she was home with her dinner at 4pm which was nice as early tea for me too.  It avoids the junk food feasting if she eats early.

 Just chilling here on a Friday.  Mum worked I slept.  Mum had soup and toast for dinner and has been nodding off on the couch, so she is off to bed at 8.30pm as she has to be up early for work on Saturday morning.

 The weather has been lovely the past week with warm sunny days and frosty nights.  Today was the first rain in some time, but it was only a light drizzle and didn't last too long.  Mum used it as an excuse to not do too much.  

She almost missed getting the recycling out in time this morning.   She may have heard the truck pull up and had to chase it a bit to get her two bags in.  Good one mum.

Mum had a day off today   I got dragged to the vet for my arthritis injection.  So I came home and sulked for 8 hours.  Mum did the chores and then rewarded herself with a library visit and then went to the movies to see Nomadland.  She enjoyed it, but wouldn't rave about it - 3.5/5.  On the way home she saw this little window.  Cute!!

 Well that's a surprise.  Mum got home tonight and the new electric blanket had been delivered.   She only ordered it on Sunday an and it was here by Monday.  Good job Briscoes.  I was so snuggled up on mums bed tonight that mum didn't want to disturb me and she will put it on the bed tomorrow. 

Sunday, May 2, 2021


 Last night was the chilliest of the year for us with the mercury dropping to 6degC .  We know our Canadian/Russian/Swedish friends may mock our shivering but it is chilly for us.  Mum had switched the electric blanket on but when she popped into bed it was stone cold.  It appeared that it chose this particular night to die.  Even I climbed between mums knees for a snooze for 30 minutes, the first knee snuggle of the year.

Mum got straight onto the Briscoes website and doing the electric blankets were half price this weekend, so a replacement was ordered (they are always having a weekend sale so no one pays full price there).  And hallelujah she got an email to say that her order has been packed and sent.  So we're on parcel watch.

 More fruits from the autumn harvest - passionfruit from our garden.  Mum didn't get to have any last year as the painters took them all.  They are sweet and mum is enjoying them as there will be none left on the vine by next week. 

  It's a quiet night tonight as mum has to work in the morning  and it's frosty tonight.  So after Call the Midwife she's off to bed with her book.

 It's getting darker earlier than ever now as winter approaches.  These were the skies as mum turned into our street tonight, a sky if peach shades with a scattering of little grey clouds.  Home just in time to switch the lights and heater on.

Mum came home and when she came home she noticed that the covers on the bed were rather rumpled and not tidy as she had left them in the morning.   On closer inspection she saw that I had left a gift for her on the bed cover   A rather dead baby mouse - thankfully in one piece.  Mum did give me a pat and called me a good girl before the body was disposed off.  

Also the zip zag cover is a towel.  I love when mum takes it off her hair after the shower and rush to sit on it and have a snooze.  In fact mum played a game tonight - Bag or Towel and I could not choose so slept with my top paws on one and bottom paws on the other.
