So  mums on call weekend is over, but she still has another day later in the week.  She finished around 6.30am this morning, so managed to get some sleep in the morning, and had the rest of the day off, but it is a bit of a zombie day as she does everything super slow.  Luckily the afternoon was sunny and warm, so mum went for a walk to the library, and a supermarket sweep (she has been 5 out of the last 7 days).

There are a couple of sunflowers popping their sunny heads out in our garden, a nice bit of summer for our friends who are still chilly and cold.  She is eating fresh courgettes/zucchini and tomatoes.  Me - well I am on the feast.

So us girls are going to tuck up early and mum is going to read before turning out the lights before 10pm  which is early for her.  I have spent the past week back on her bed as it is getting cooler at nights, although we are having visitors later in the week, so that may all change.

Hope your week is starting well.


  1. 7:30 in the morning over here Poppy!x
    Overcast and rain is on it's way...As the
    funny weatherman is saying....HeHe! What
    does he know. :).
    You both keep warm now!

  2. Poppy, dear, it's so cold here that I heated the cans of food I put out in the feral cat feeder! Be glad you have a warm bed inside with your mum. Barns are warm, but beds inside are better.

  3. Oh Julie I can not tell you how much I enjoy reading about your day to day life with sweet Poppy Q...all the little mundane details seem to hit home with me and give me a sort of comfort in a world filled with chaos...that far on the other side of the world another soul lives just like me day to day...I do miss my daily stops at the supermarket with my mother and now shop only when I really have to get kitty kibbles!
    Much love and soft hugs to you girls...Karla

  4. Glad your mum survived call. Mum is usually in bed by 10 PM, otherwise she is a zombie.

  5. Enjoy your night snuggles Poppy and mum. We is glad your mum is done with on call for a bit, and we bets both you and she are too!
