Mum tried to get up early and potter round in her dressing gown today, but the painters were back.  Finally we think, although there is still building work to be done on the front of the house.  We are over it.  It has been a long six weeks of disruptions, and mum finds it hard when their noise keeps her awake, balancing home renos and shift work is difficult.

So mum did finally arise and do some washing , as the breeze was blowing and the sun was shining so perfect to dry the sheets and clothes.  She then went into town for a wander, and then off to visit a bestie for a lovely dinner, pork belly with salad and a potato gratin.  Then caramalised fruits and vanilla ice cream.  I patiently waited at home for my feast - yum yum.

Hope you all had a fun day and got to see some sun shining.


  1. Sun's shinning and a bit breezey over here to Poppy!x
    Got some washing on the line too.
    HeHe! And, still getting the brush off l see...Bless!

    Oh! And you had a good win in the cricket, over Australia,
    yesterday...I do watch it from time to time....Well, might
    see you in the crowd...With your little brush!x

  2. Paws crossed that the painters are finishing up!

  3. No sunshine here again Poppy, just rain. My mum cooked pork belly tonight too and I had some.

  5. Poppy, dear, you're fortunate that your mum has purrfected the process of unwinding. She's brilliant at spotting the beauty of a ray of sunshine -- and hastening to harness it to dry her laundry. And she has excellent taste in her dining-out menus! Now do your best to help her settle in for a good night's rest. Soon the painters will be finished and no doubt your mum will be pleased to view your home's updated appearance.

  6. All that bother and noise from painters. Poor you and your mum. We hope the painting is over soon. What a lovely dinner your mum had. My mum went for a walk today too. Very cold along the lake and the harbour is all frozen over. Meow from Jessica

  7. We had the sun today Poppy but it was furry cold! We is tired of winter.

    Hope you and mum have a good nights rest!
