You go out and enjoy your day off mum. I'm gonna stay warm and snuggly here. Mum took herself out to lunch at a cafe - a tasty sandwich and fruit smoothie. A big walk in the winter sun and some window shopping.
Then she went and saw a movie called Wild Rose at the cinema and had a walk home to catch up with me. Good work mum.
While mum has worked the weekend I am camped out in my corner. I have a heated bed and a heater on - it is winter here. And a big bowl of biscuits. The water bowl is in the living room. Life is good for this old girl.
Mum meantime donned her woollie hst for the first time this year as it was raining on the way to work. This is her last evening shift this week. She will be glad to sleep in on her two days off as she is a bit tired.
It is Caturday afternoon and I am sending mum off to work again. She spent the morning sleeping in and then thought she should tackle a couple of bits of housework. Scrubbing the toilet and hoovering were awesome. I did not help.
The fun things were that she got to relax and read her book and cooked some sausage rolls for her lunch - lucky the hoover was out as the pastry flaked everywhere. She is going to try and enjoy her walk to work, before being shut inside for 8 hours.
We hope you are having a nice Caturday and do something fun.
We need a reminder of warm summery days with the windows open and the breeze blowing in. It is feeling wintry here at the moment and we are glad that the shortest day is coming up. We shouldn't complain, as it is rather mild here where we live. We have only ever had a sprinkling of snow here in the last 25 years, and this winter has been rather mild.
Mums body is better suited to winter clothing and she enjoys wearing a big cardigan and boots, mum enjoys comfort food and it is nice to hibernate and snuggle down in bed with some books and a warm furry cat to cuddle with. I love having my electric blanket on and a heater to snuggle next too.
We hope if you live somewhere cold tonight you are warm and cozy and if you live north of the equator and are toasty warm - please enjoy your sunshine and warm summer breezes for us.
Mum was a bit tired after work, and with an armful of groceries got into the wrong bus heading in the wrong direction to home. She got off at the next stop and was quickly able to find the correct way home.
it is chilly here tonight and feels like winter. I am tucked up in my bed and mum is tucked up in hers . the heating is on although our old house is cold - no central heating here. Brrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!
There was the sounds of vomiting and other stuff this morning at 02 30am and it wasn't me. Mums dinner that she was do proud of, was not so fond of her. Luckily she got a bit of a warning and it only lasted an hour. I guess all the leftovers are getting binned now.
We were both tired today and mum canceled her plans as she was not quite right. The toast has stayed down and it will be back to normal by Tuesday.
It was getting chilly this afternoon but I insisted on sitting on the barbecue table while mum fed the birdies again.
Mum was thinking about going out today as the sun was shining, however she decided that tomorrow would be her day out in town. So she slowed down and spent the day with me. She washed the towels, did the dishes, and did a few more chores. A home day is always a bonus.
Mum made herself some lemon garlicky pasta for dinner. She dished out some feast for me and some treats later on. How lucky am I?
Sorry friends, mum got all carried away and forgot about posting on Caturday. She had a day pottering about, then napping then out for the evening with work colleagues for Asian fusion food (double the price , but 1/2 the flavour). Only one cocktail though so no hangover this morning for mum.
This morning she was up early and went to the movies to see Rocketman, which was quite fun and she enjoyed it more than she expected to. Then off to the market for the weeks vegetables - cauliflower, onions, cabbage, pumpkin, leek, swede, parsnips and carrots.
Then a big walk round the waterfront. It was rather chilly, so not as crowded as usual. The clouds were gathering so mum was glad to head home for soup and toast.
I have had a quiet weekend snoozing and eating. I am glad that I got mum to relax. This week is a long one with mum having a 6 day work week. Phew!!
This morning mum woke up early and while she stayed warm under the covers, she grabbed her phone to check the news and a few blogs. She was sad to learn that lovely Parker from I Have Three Cats had traveled his final journey to the Bridge. Parker got to join Johns home in 2017 as a foster cat, but he fitted in and made himself at home. His roomies weren't overly friendly to him, but he fitted in nicely finding his own spots to rest and relax. He took immense joy in taking John for a walk outside on the leash, and these posts and photos would always make us smile.
We were sad to hear earlier this year that Mr Parker had been diagnosed with cancer, and with Johns gentle care he got to enjoy a few more months of comfort and love. Thank you Mr Parker for sharing your life with us - you touched our hearts. We are glad that you got to live in a loving home with some nice noms, indifferent roomies and snuggles for your last years. We will miss you.
The storm has blown all the clouds away so I popped outside to sunbathe. My mum then came out to snap some pictures. I couldn't bother to move much so mum got lots of snaps. It is going to take all week for us to share them all - we hope you don't mind? I seldom tolerate the camera on me but the sun was lovely.
Today was a holiday for Queenies Birthday so it was a nice stay at home holiday for us with some relaxing done. We fed the birdies again today, just on the concrete to make them happy.
