.Family Visit

My lovely family came to visit yesterday.  It was the worstest weather of the year,  with gale force winds and icy rain.  Mum was taking her family to the stadium, to see the All Blacks play Argentina      at rugby.  Mum and the niece and nephew got to sit high up in the stadium, a little bit under cover.  Her brother and sister in-law sat further down a bit more in the open.  Well the weather held off til the whistle blew, and then icy cold rain poured down and swirled around.

The family were all shivering, and ran out of the stadium as the final whistle blew.  They all escaped to get some warm burgers and then came home and turned on all the heaters and electric blankets.  Me I got to have nephews pillow - I'm in love.

Mum says I was very brave, and came inside a few times while the family was here, and mum says that she was pleased, as it was soo chilly outside.  Everybody got some sleep, and mum says I either slept on the pillow or between mums knees all night.

So the family have packed up this morning, and gone and taken my blue pillow.  It feels empty in the house now, but I am back on my bed catching up on my zzzs, and the washing machine is humming.


  1. They should have left the pillow for you, Poppy!

  2. Sounds like a good visit! Did the All Blacks win?

  3. Brrrr! Icy rain sounds terrible, Poppy. We're glad you tried to stay in. Hope you and the Mom get rested up. XOXO

  4. Brrrr is right. And gee, yes, we think they ought to have left the pillow for you, Poppy.

    Too bad the weather was so miserable, but our mom thinks the rugby players' thighs might have been some compensation--at least would have been for her. LOL.

  5. I'm so sorry the weather was so miserable and disagreeable while your family was visiting, but at least it sounds like you managed to cope quite well with their visit, Miss Pops!

    Stay warm and cozy, ladies!

  6. Sorry the weather was so awful, but glad you spent some time with your family Poppy. You look wonderful on the pillow!

  8. How naughty of the weather to time it like that! Poppy we are glad you braved the family to come inside for a bit.

  9. Glad you had a family visit, too bad they got all cold and wet at the match.

  10. Poppy Q, our house was quite after my TN hoomans left. Sounds like you have Winter. We're going into Fall, loving it too.
