Happy Caturday

The mumster had a good day better than me.  I did get to go outside even though it was a bit cloudy and cool, I got to strut my stuff.  I ate a ton of biscuits and then mum chased me down, did a flea treatment, put some treats out and then left the house, only to return ten hours later in time for a late night feast.

The mumster had a good sleep, a nice shower and a tasty breakfast of last nights left over dinner.  She then headed into town.  The first stop was Moore Wilsons, a local shop to check out some of those Orla Kiely glasses she bought two weeks ago.  There were only four left, so mum thought that she better take those home.  She then went off for a little walk, and then caught the bus to go out and meet up with some friends.  They dined at an Italian place and shared lots of tiramisu, lemon cheesecake, chocolate mousse and other sweets.  A little shopping was done - mum was excited to find refills for her lint roller - ahh the middle aged lady life is fabulous.

Mum had to leave her friends as they were taking the kids off for swimming lessons.  Mum then went and met with another bestie.  They met at a classy pub, one with glamorous waitresses, that smells clean and has no pokie machines.  The girls got a big bowl of super salty but delicious chunky fries and some super spicy beef dumplings.  Then they went to the cinema.

Tonights movie was Spectre - the new James Bond show.  They like a bit of Daniel Craig, but wonder if the movie was all style and no substance.  It felt like the boys making it all sat in a room and figured out 5 action scenes and then made up a story and strung it together.  Sorry to say that the two love interests were just wrong. Monica was all heaving bossom and a cheesy love scene that all seemed a bit rushed.  Lea Seydoux looked like she was in the wrong movie.  She looked two young and meek and mild.  Mr Bond needs a bit of sauce and too be honest, we thought she wasn't slutty enough.  A 3/5.

So now mum is home and us girls are looking forward to a good nights sleep.  Mum is a bit tired after her long day out, so time to go and clean the face and teeth, and time for us girls to snuggle down.

Hope you all had a lovely Caturday too!


  1. Goodness Poppy!x What a lovely day your Mum had....
    Painting the town red! Or what ever colour she fancies...! :).
    Ah! And, leaving you all that time on your own....Bless!x
    Hope she left the telly on for you, and perhaps a DVD of
    Puss in Boots! HeHe!
    Nite! Nite!x

  2. Poppy, dear, your mum's day on the town was fabulous! However, I admit that finding refills (refills!) for the lint roller would have given it a gold star on my calendar, too. These are the serendipitous events that make purchasing elegant glassware possible.

  3. Wow, what a fantastic day your mum had! Well, your day sounds pretty good too, except for the flea treatment! The glasses were a lovely extra treat for herself!

  4. My hubby and I are going to see that on Monday. I was hoping it was going to be good being that it is so long.

  5. Flea treatment, ugh!!! Your mum sounds like she had a fun and busy weekend and good for her spotting those glasses. We like your mum's movie reviews! from Jessica

  6. Great to hear your mum have a fantastic day !
    My mom thumbs up for " tiramisu, lemon cheesecake, chocolate mousse and other sweets " !
    Sure your mom will have a good dream


  7. Your mum has energy to spare. Our Mum needs vitamin tablets.
    Glad there were still Orla Kiely glasses available.

  8. Hope you had a good sleep. Mum is ready to chill out with her book.
