Birdie Tree

Mum put the washing out in the sun yesterday and noticed how many sparrows were sitting in the tree waiting for their dinner.  She had been feeding them bird seed over winter and they seem to be enjoying it.

 I was glad when mum woke up this morning, so I could sit beside her and have a little chat.  She'd had a middle aged lady night of too hot then too cold, and she woke up to a chilly morning with just one cover on her.  I usually then follow mum to the bathroom and talk to her during her visit there and then wait outside the door while she takes her shower - or I sneak back on the bed and steal her spot!!

 Just another quiet Monday.  Mum off to work at 6.20am and I'm just chilling on the mumster bed.

 Mum worked another afternoon shift today.  A busy shift is fine, it goes quicker and before you know it mum is home again.  A late night dinner for both of us and then now a bit of relaxing before mum heads to bed.  Don't worry mum I'll warm the bed up for you.

Cosy Corner

 I spend a lot of time in this cozy corner.  My special bed has an electric heated pad in it for my 14 year old creaky bones, two quilts, a crochet blanket and topped with a towel.  Mum says I am like the princess and the pea.

 Mum did not get called in last night which made her happy, but her fitbit says she only got 4 and a half hours sleep last night.  The good thing was that work was busy today so she did not notice how tired she was.  Once she got home though she was incapable of doing much.  She gave me my dinner and a couple of cuddles.  

The only chore mum succeeded in doing tonight was a load of underwear washing.   Uniforms and sheets will be done tomorrow when the sun is meant to be shining.  Mum watched a program on TV this week where the kids only washed their sheets once a year.  Gross.

 A bit of sunshine today to warm my elderly furs.  Mum worked an afternoon shift this afternoon and got home late.  We both filled our bellies with a late night supper.  Mum hopes to get some sleep as she is on call tonight and us due back at work at 8am.

Winter Rut

 It's got to that dreary part of the winter where it is dark when mum leaves and gets home.  She's a bit over it all.  Yesterday ended up warm and sunny giving us a taste of spring which is only about 5 weeks away.  Me - well I'll sleep whatever the weather.

 Mums only watched a bit of the games, swimming and gymnastics tonight.  She admires all the young people who have trained under unusual circumstances and who are doing their best to represent their countries.   She's been also watching a few of their tiktoks too where you get to see more if the athletes village.

How about you guys?  Watching the games too?

 The sun was shining through the windows today.  It was a bit of a nothing day for us today.   Mum didn't fall asleep until 5am and she was pretty tired all day so she just pottered about and did it a little housework.  Fingers crossed she sleeps tonight.

 Yippee mums night shifts are over and she finally has her nights back to sleep.  She's tired and ready to get a normal bit of rest with me.

 I was a good girl today and let mum sleep the day away after her nightshift.   Well until 2pm when I meowed at her for 10 minutes to tell her something very important.

 Mum thanked me for the gift I bought her last night at 10.30pm.  I got praise for 3.5 minutes before she had to find her raincoat to take it back to its final resting space.

Street Cat

 Mum met another grey beauty on her way to work at lunchtime.   No time to stop for pat's, just time for a few quick photos.

 Holy moly it's wet outside.  I only had to go out once and I'm going to stay tucked up warm inside.  Mum had to go to work and got an uber in as it was bucketing down, so hard it was difficult for the driver to see, but they got to work safely.  Roads across the city are flooded and some towns in the south island have had to evacuate due to flooding.   We are safe where we live up on top of a hill though so don't worry about us.

 Mum took this photo last week when the skies were blue.  Today it has been raining and the wind is whipping round at 140km/hr.  Mum caught an uber home and the wind blew the door shut onto her sore shoulder - ouch!!

Mum liked this photo as it shows the small gap between our house and the house next door.
