You saw my movie at the weekend of me chewing on the green grass in the weekend. It's something I like to do. Mum thinks I like it because it's tasty. I'm seldom sick after eating grass, mum thinks I like the roughage and need my fiber. Just like she needs to eat her greens too.

After a rainy but warm day the skies are clearing, dragging in the cooler weather. Streaks of Grey and orange lit up the skies before it got dark tonight.
I had a feast - it was a good one with lots of gravy. Time to snooze now.

Well it's been a quiet day here. Mum stayed home with me and we just chilled. It was windy and cool outside and mum put her slippers on and didn't move further than from the bedroom to the living room. She did venture outside to put the rubbish out and to feed the birds.
I had a quiet day today too and did much the same as mum. Purrfect.

So there have been signs of winter creeping in. It could be the dark mornings or nights, it could be the coldest night of the year. Mum says it is me rediscovering my heated bed. First time mum has plugged it in since October 2020. I have been in it all night and all day.

Mum took this picture on her way to work during the week. This morning it was not quite so clear. At 6.20am as she left, it was drizzling and dark. Still its only a 30minute walk to work. Time to listen to a podcast and think about the supermarket shopping list. Mmmm - nachos for dinner.

The weather has been lovely the past week with warm sunny days and frosty nights. Today was the first rain in some time, but it was only a light drizzle and didn't last too long. Mum used it as an excuse to not do too much.
She almost missed getting the recycling out in time this morning. She may have heard the truck pull up and had to chase it a bit to get her two bags in. Good one mum.

Well that's a surprise. Mum got home tonight and the new electric blanket had been delivered. She only ordered it on Sunday an and it was here by Monday. Good job Briscoes. I was so snuggled up on mums bed tonight that mum didn't want to disturb me and she will put it on the bed tomorrow.

Last night was the chilliest of the year for us with the mercury dropping to 6degC . We know our Canadian/Russian/Swedish friends may mock our shivering but it is chilly for us. Mum had switched the electric blanket on but when she popped into bed it was stone cold. It appeared that it chose this particular night to die. Even I climbed between mums knees for a snooze for 30 minutes, the first knee snuggle of the year.
Mum got straight onto the Briscoes website and doing the electric blankets were half price this weekend, so a replacement was ordered (they are always having a weekend sale so no one pays full price there). And hallelujah she got an email to say that her order has been packed and sent. So we're on parcel watch.

More fruits from the autumn harvest - passionfruit from our garden. Mum didn't get to have any last year as the painters took them all. They are sweet and mum is enjoying them as there will be none left on the vine by next week.
It's a quiet night tonight as mum has to work in the morning and it's frosty tonight. So after Call the Midwife she's off to bed with her book.

Also the zip zag cover is a towel. I love when mum takes it off her hair after the shower and rush to sit on it and have a snooze. In fact mum played a game tonight - Bag or Towel and I could not choose so slept with my top paws on one and bottom paws on the other.

It has been a 3 day long weekend this weekend which has been just lovely. The weather was better than forecast, with three warm and sunny days. The evenings are cooling and mum has the heaters turned on which I am enjoying.
I got to go out in the garden with mum and show her my favorite sunshine spots.

Mum is feeling better today. She went to bed last night with a fever and sore arm but as the day went on today her temperature has almost returned to normal. It is ANZAC day here and mum would have liked to go to dawn parade she would have felt a bit too wobbly to stand outside for an hour.
So she slept in and just pottered about. She cleaned the windows and did the dishes and more washing. She might venture out and about tomorrow. Me well I enjoyed my sleep in and was begging for my dinner at 4pm and back to bed by 4.15pm.

Well its the day after her 2nd Pfizer vaccination and mum is wiped out. The day was sunny and hot for autumn, so mum filled the washing line with towels and her uniforms. She took herself out for a walk and after 1.5 hours she had to admit defeat and call a taxi to bring her home. She just feels like she has a bad flu but no sneezing or coughs, just achy with a bit of a headache. I'm going to be a good nurse and snuggle up next to her.

Yippee Friday is finally here. Mum survived the bus strike and managed a solid 15,000 steps today, so this evening she is planning to sit on the couch and barely move. She also went and got her 2nd Covid vaccination today. It was busy at the clinic as someone fainted after their injection. Mum felt fine but most of her colleagues have felt a bit rough the day after this 2nd injection. Mum plans to have some orange juice and an early night.
Do you like the soft focus photo? Mum has no idea of how to put the special effects on her photos, it all happens when she accidentally presses pushes some button. She should look at the instructions sometime.
We hope you are all excited for the weekend and have something fun planned.

Today was cloudy with spots of rain, so mum was glad that we got to enjoy the windows open and get all of the washing done yesterday. Today mum ventured out only to go to the library, to return some online shopping to the post office and to get some groceries. Mum and I do feel relaxed though.

Mum worked late this evening, so she came home and gave me my dinner. I then urgently curled up on the mama bed in heat mum calls the snuggly buggly position. Mum has some shifts coming up and is going to try and focus on the positive things about working late and enjoy the days at home and try and sleep in and spend some time in the sun with me. Once I get my beauty sleep.

Mum still managed to get herself up and ready and had time to visit a couple of shops and the market on the way to the cinema to pick up a roll and an apple. She saw The Father first. A somewhat grim movie about a fathers struggle with memory loss. Olivia Coleman is always a delight, and Anthony Hopkins is just perfect in the title role being so talented at playing the charming and bewildered father whose life is swirling around him. I did manage to nod off several times so its a 3.5/5 from me.
So mums tired and hopefully she'll get to sleep through the night tonight.
