So mum got a busy on -call night last night.  She worked 11.30pm - 3.30am and then got home for an hour before heading back in at 4.30am until just before 7am.  She then does get the day off work, and always thinks that she will get busy, but it only takes 5 minutes of sitting down to want to go and lie down.  So she got a good couple of hours napping before she got up to enjoy the sunshine for the afternoon.  Washing and dishes were done which was good and mum got to spend the afternoon sitting reading her book in the sun.  Our weather has been a bit odd at the moment.  Cloudy in the morning, clearing in the afternoon for a couple of hours and then cloudy and drizzly from about 6pm until the morning again.

Fingers crossed she can get some sleeps again tonight.  I am exhausted - I was busy waiting for mum to get home all night.  It is hard work being a good guard cat.


  1. Ah! Poor Mum..all those hours, and shift work
    as well..still, at least she can settle down
    and rest, and have a day off..!

    The weather over here is all over the place,
    couple days of frost..a day of rain, and just
    now the suns come out and getting quite warm,
    it can never make it's mind up..! :(.

    I think your an excellent guard cat Poppy!x
    I would'nt like to meet you on a dark night...! :).

  2. You do excellent work, Poppy. Supervising mum at home and worrying
    about when she is gone. Keep it up. Hope you mum gets a good
    nights sleep she deserves.

  3. Poor mum, and poor you, Poppy, dear! It's so unsettling, this not knowing when one will be able to sleep soundly. I no longer need work nights; however, when I did I knew colleagues who stayed up all night even on their nights free in order to keep a regular schedule. (We socialized within a very small flock of night owls.)

  4. it iz hard werk poppy N we hope mum apurreciatez it by gettin ewe a tin oh bizcuitz N 7 shopping bags !! :) ♥♥♥

  5. I can certainly understand why your mum would want to rest a bit after such a shift. Good Heavens, how she does it, I don't know.
