Nice Knees

After last evenings of ignoring mum as she pottered round, I  came over and jumped on top of her at 3am and 6am to check she was still at home with me.  I have also come over and had a little snuggle sitting on her nice knees about 5 times.  I never last more than 5 minutes, but I like to snuggle in and close my eyes.

The grey clouds hung low today, giving us a cool day unlike the summery weekend mum had, so she pottered at home, getting some washing done, reading her book.  She took a small walk to the post office this morning and a visit to the supermarket.  She got lots of green stuff, grapes, lettuce, cucumber, broccoli and carrots and tomatoes for colour.  Chicken and salmon for her, and some feasts for me - thanks mum.

Mum is enjoying her time off.  She had been very tired the past couple of weeks, but had been working a few long shifts and lots of weekend work.  This past weekend a couple of cold sores popped up too, just in time for her birthday which makes mum think she was fighting a wee virus or bug of some kind or just run down.  So she has been relaxing and trying to take it easy, trying to find some balance.  Hugs with me help - so mum is glad to be home.

So tonight mum made herself some tasty salmon which she served with broccoli and carrots.  A good start to mums dining week.  Me - I enjoyed my feast.


  1. Ah! Poppy!x So you forgave Mum for leaving you....
    Bless! Mum's must have a bit of 'down' time sometimes
    Glad you've both settled down now for cuddles!

  2. We're glad your mum has you to make her feel better, Poppy. Tell her to take good care of herself!

  3. Poppy, dear, you're such a good housemate to check on your mom 5 times (!) to be sure her knees were warm. I'm sure you're as heavy as my biggest tomcat, Simon, and he really helps my joints by massaging my legs with both powerful paws. Now be an angel and sing some purring lullabys to help your mum sleep...

  4. We're sure your mom bean is grateful for your company when she isn't feeling well. You're such a good nurse!

    Hope mum feels better soon!
    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  5. Mum here gets all tired, then she knows she needs to do a weekend off! Minimal running around, do stuff at home, lots of cuddles with me and lots of sleeps.
