I was glad when mum woke up this morning, so I could sit beside her and have a little chat. She'd had a middle aged lady night of too hot then too cold, and she woke up to a chilly morning with just one cover on her. I usually then follow mum to the bathroom and talk to her during her visit there and then wait outside the door while she takes her shower - or I sneak back on the bed and steal her spot!!

Mum did not get called in last night which made her happy, but her fitbit says she only got 4 and a half hours sleep last night. The good thing was that work was busy today so she did not notice how tired she was. Once she got home though she was incapable of doing much. She gave me my dinner and a couple of cuddles.
The only chore mum succeeded in doing tonight was a load of underwear washing. Uniforms and sheets will be done tomorrow when the sun is meant to be shining. Mum watched a program on TV this week where the kids only washed their sheets once a year. Gross.

Mums only watched a bit of the games, swimming and gymnastics tonight. She admires all the young people who have trained under unusual circumstances and who are doing their best to represent their countries. She's been also watching a few of their tiktoks too where you get to see more if the athletes village.
How about you guys? Watching the games too?

Holy moly it's wet outside. I only had to go out once and I'm going to stay tucked up warm inside. Mum had to go to work and got an uber in as it was bucketing down, so hard it was difficult for the driver to see, but they got to work safely. Roads across the city are flooded and some towns in the south island have had to evacuate due to flooding. We are safe where we live up on top of a hill though so don't worry about us.

Mum took this photo last week when the skies were blue. Today it has been raining and the wind is whipping round at 140km/hr. Mum caught an uber home and the wind blew the door shut onto her sore shoulder - ouch!!
Mum liked this photo as it shows the small gap between our house and the house next door.

Mums day off started with a sleep in. Then she did some chores - a Hoover of the carpet, made the bed and opened the windows to get some fresh air moving about. She had some clothes to return to the post office, which is really the bookstore as post offices have seemed to have disappeared now. A visit to the library is mandatory, always reserved books to pick up and drop off. The supermarket wasn't too busy, but cat food seems in short supply and expensive, so even though there aren't too many cans of feast in my cupboard mum will wait until it is on special again.
Mum tried to resist but after lunch she had to have a nap. I woke her up though at 4.30pm ready for my dinner. I licked all the jelly off a sachet of something leaving the meaty bits behind. Mum made herself a new pasta dish but did not really like the supermarket pasta sauce she added. She had made too much, and now has to eat it for the next 4 meals.

Mum forgot to show you. When our new woolly blanket got delivered, I got to explore the awesome bag it came in. Mum saves all of these delivery bags to either recycle or use for rubbish. I was only allowed a 1/2hour supervised playtime in it. I'll have to make do with my other bags.

Mum and I had a farewell visit to our vets this afternoon. I've been going for the whole 14 years that I have been alive, and mum took her old girl Puss there before me. They have been a part of the community for 50 years and will be sorely missed. She took these photos so we have a reminder of our visits. Can you find me in the shots?
I just needed a senior check today and my arthritis injection. I was a good girl for the vet and told I was in good health for my age. Mum thanked them for helping me, but truthfully she felt teary, she is no good at goodbyes as she has got older.
Do you want to know something sweet? On the way there she put her finger in the carrier and I put my paw on her finger and held it there for the rest of the journey.

It's Caturday and winter seems to have arrived. We've been having frosty cold nights but the days are sunny, but somewhat chilly. Good weather for soup and bagels says the munster. Good for sleeping and fancy feast says Poppyq.
Mum worked all day, so tonight she gave herself a facial scrub, lit the candles, put the movie Arrival on , got some Pepsi max out and is about to grab some chocolate out of the fridge (Whitakers berry and biscuit). Go mum!!

Welcome July, we're ready for you. Thanks for the polar blast to start with. It's cool with temperatures dropping to about 3degC overnight which is chilly for us. There has been some sunshine in the afternoon which was welcome.
Mum got an email this afternoon to say that our vets are closing down at the end of the month which is sad. I have gone to see them my whole life and as they are just a 5 minute ride away the taxi ride to get there and back was not too expensive. The sad bit for mum is that the vet had a cattery attached to it. Finding cattery places in our city is difficult. Luckily covid has restricted travel, so mum has no holidays planned, so she is trying not to get anxious about something that may not happen.

Brrr the chills are here in our polar blast. It was a great day for the courier to bring the mumsters new purchase a new wool blanket for the bed. I test slept on it immediately. It's good to go mum!!
There have been huge waves around our harbour city and snow on the hills, but mum and I have stayed inside all day with the heaters on. Mum only went outside to pick up the parcel and to put bird seed out for the sparrows. Otherwise we've just napped and taken it easy.

There was a sliver of sunshine for a few hours today. Mum put some washing out, visited the library and got some groceries and then read her book in the sun while she aired out the house.
Our little lockdown was extended for another 48 hours so it meant mums plans to visit with friends was put on hold. There is also a polar storm heading up our way, so temperatures have dropped rapidly this evening. So mum is thinking of spending her day off tomorrow at home with me. Yippee!!

Mum found this old photo from about 8 years ago. Mum loved those quilts, especially the black and white one. Maybe it's time to change up our bedding again? Mum loves a good duvet or quilt. Some people like cushions or bikes or cars - what does your person/people like?
