Murphys Law

Hahaha - just to prove that I DO NOT look gorgeous in every shot!!!

Anyways after telling you all yesterday about our signs of spring, well we woke up to sunshine that lasted only til about 8am and then a cold old southerly blast straight from Antarctica whizzed up and kicked us in the butt giving us chilly cold rain, that meant mum had to pull out her gloves and hat to wander around.  We can barely complain though, as our near freezing temperature is rare.  One of our friends asked about our mild weather, and we are lucky here.  We had snow a couple of years ago for one day, and that was the first snow in our city for forty years!!  Our spring doesn't start til September, but the trees are blossoming already, spring lambs are being born (in the countryside) and daffodils and other bulbs are popping up in the garden.

So the mumster got up early and met a bestie for brunch and a couple of film festival movies, which was a lovely treat on a day out.  She even put her gloves on and walked home, as the rain just stopped then and the sun came out, so she was glad of some fresh air.  She is also busy listening to Ted Talks Podcasts, which are awesome.  A few minutes of learning about interesting stuff.   A night at home with me was in order and we even sat on the couch together for 10 minutes or so which surprised mum.

Last night - even though she promised an early night again it was a 01:30 bedtime - tsk tsk.  So tonight, mum is tired, and will be heading off early - cross your paws for her.
