Happy Birthday to me - I'm a big grown up 15 year old today. Mum woke up and sung to me and gave me kisses. I was thrilled!!! No kidney biscuits today, I got a big tasty fancy feast when mum got home.
Thank you for all the kind comments. Mum and I appreciated them all. We are lucky to have so many sweet friends thinking of us.

Today was mums day off work and treat Tuesday. She had a nice pastry for breakfast sitting in the sunshine, and then we had an appointment. At the new vets. I was due for my arthritis joint injection and mum wanted me to have my vaccination and I had a couple of mats on my tummy that needed to be taken off. The vet was nice and suggested a blood test as it was a while since I had had one.
So we came home and mum had lunch while I sulked in the bedroom. The vet rung this afternoon and the bloods show some renal failure, but thankfully at the early stages. I have to now go on special renal biscuits and see the vet again in a month. Mum did have a little cry and then got herself up to dish up my feast. I got extra cuddles tonight too.

Mum got a lecture from someone at work today about how they weren't getting the vaccination, how it's all a scam, worse than the Nazis, how it's all a form of control and all about money. Mum wonders then if they don't believe in science or doctors advice why they were at the hospital in the first place? Anyway Mum didn't engage with the argument as she knew that was what they were fishing for. Mum wasn't surprised at the stories - she knows all the excuses. It was the tone and the arrogance - like they thought they were educating her.
She came home and had a drink tonight. And gave me cuddles.

Mum figured out on her roster that she has the next 5 Tuesdays off work and decided to make them Treat Tuesdays. Today she didn't feel like spending money, so she did things for herself ar home.
- started a new library book
- hair mask and facial scrub
- watched a movie while knitting on the couch
- took a nap
- chicken schnitzel and salad for dinner
I got a good brushing, a feast, lots of kisses and some temptations - so treats for me too.

Mum has knitted another lot of mask extenders for her work colleagues. She has made 35 so far, but has more to do. At the moment she has to wear surgical masks the whole time at work, except when drinking and eating. She also has to wear them on public transport and in places like supermarkets and at the library , which can be a long 10 hours of mums day. Mums poor ears get quite sore most days. Mum is trying to make one for everyone she works with and for her friends as well.

Mum and I had a good evening. She made 10 mask extenders for some of her colleagues. She enjoyed her dinner - roast pork, kumara, pumpkin, carrots and green beans. She has been a bit bored with her meals lately. A bit like me and my feasts too. Mum worries about my appetite. It's not like it used to be but I still eat and beg for my feast every evening. I just only eat about 1/4 when it's dished up and go back for a little nibble later on.

Mum has been busy in the evenings this past week. These are ear savers - knitted bands that save your ears. She has to wear masks at work the whole day and mum finds her ears are sore, and she was getting tension headaches. So mum has knitted about 30 of these bands in the past week to give free to her colleagues. The ladies at the local sewing shop have laughed each time mum comes in for buttons. She had to have a night off tonight as she was tired, but has plans to make some more the rest of the week.

Mum went out to have a wander today and ended up at the pet store which had a teeny tiny cat section. She wasn't going to get anything, but felt bad if she didn't get me a gift. She got me this birdie which has big feathers on the tail and is stuffed with catnip. Friends - I loved it and rolled around on the bed with it for a half hour and then fell asleep using it as a pillow.

Today has been chill. Mum relaxed between the household chores. Even though the spring sun was out it was still chilly and cooler inside our old house but warm in the sun. Mum filled the washing line with washing. She loves being sble to get it dried outside after 6 months of drying it in the living room.
If she gets up early enough tomorrow she might head out for some fresh air. She feels in need of some treats.

Mum has managed only seven hours sleep over the past two nights. Both days she has started work at 7am and the thought of sleeping in keeps her awake. The changing start and finish times of mums work make a routine almost impossible. That's why tonight it's 11.45pm and mum is still up and doing the dishes while I've been in bed since 5pm.
