Its been raining off and on all day today. Luckily the little tomato that are sneaking between gaps in the fence will not need watering and might be ripe by the weekend.
Mum got the pfizer vaccine yesterday. She feels fine today, her arm still aches liked she's been punched but that's it. Today mum decided to stay home with me and did some dishes and hovered. Book reading and TV watching was all she felt like doing today.
Me - well I got up at 11am. Begged for dinner at 3pm and back to bed by 4pm.

After a sunny weekend, mums day off was rainy. Still she got herself a sleep in and then got herself up and ready as it was an important day. She got ger first covid vaccine. It was nice and quick and she caught up with some colleagues before and after. Her arm is a little sore tonight so she has taken an ibuprofen. She'll have an early night as she is tired after a few shifts, her body clock is a bit out of whack.

Mum and I are glad that Monday has rolled around. Mum has a 7 day working stretch ahead. The good thing is that she will have 2 days off to relax next week. Mum made corned beef with mashed potatoes and cabbage for dinner last night, with plenty of leftovers although all that cabbage has made her somewhat gassy. Mum thinks it is brave that I am sleeping on her bed tonight- very brave.

Tonight mum got to have a big night out with friends. Pizza and drinks and then off to see Crowded House in concert. They were awesome and everyone enjoyed a good dance and sing along. She hopes you enjoy the short video she took. We're off to bed for a cuddle and snooze now.

Mum did fun stuff on her day off like scrubbing the toilet and the rubbish bin. She packed some parcels to return to the online shops but then couldn't find her fitbit. Luckily she realized that she had gathered it up into the parcel before she took it to the post office. Maybe she should have left it as the kms would have increased this weeks average. She did enjoy the 8am wake up and the morning snuggle with me.

Mum found this beautiful purple dahlia on the way home this afternoon. She saw an article on the news at the weekend of some trials they are doing that suggest some supplement made of dahlia extract may be able to reverse diabetes.
It's 8.30pm and dark outside and getting cooler. The seasons are changing, which is good news for our northern hemisphere friends. We're going to miss the sunshine. Mum loves sandal weather and is thinking it may be time to pull the slippers out.

After finishing at 8pm last night, going to bed at 11pm, up at 5.30am, at work at 7am and finished at 3pm mum got a subway sandwich which she ate by 4pm and was napping with me on the bed by 5pm. Now a few hours together this evening and it's approaching 9.30pm and time for heading to bed. I'm on the bed already mum.

How to tell you the seasons changing without telling you the seasons changing. Mum has noticed that I've been spending time back on her bed, snuggling next to her. She particularly enjoyed when I came and woke her up at 2.30am to tell her it was raining outside. I did this by rubbing my wet furs on her arm - she loved it.

Mum didn't feel any if the 3 big quakes that were felt in NZ today. They were all off the coast a long way north of us. The expectation is that there will be aftershocks to come, so mum might make sure that the emergency bag is packed and close by. She'll make sure there are my cans of feast and a shopping bag for me to sleep on inside.

Mum got herself a day of work today and she enjoyed it a lot. Housework to begin the day was satisfying, dushes and washing all done before she headed off to lunch with a bestie. Lunch was simple but tasty, a fresh pineapple/apple/spinach juice and a ham and cheese toasting with gerkins and always made more enjoyable when it was followed by some shopping, although mum didn't buy anything.
By the time mum got home she was glad to put her feet up and read her book for a while with me. If course I was asking for my dinner by 2. 45pm - a bit early mum said. She gave in though and let me have my feast at 3pm so she got some quiet time (she means nap time really).

We got asked about vaccination for Covid in NZ. So far border workers have begun to be vaccinated and soon will be Frontline health workers which should include mum as she works the hospital. To be fair, as we do not have a lot of Covid here and mum is happy that we wait our turn. The vaccine should be going to people in communities most at risk.
Mum gets asthma and some bad respiratory infections, so she will be happy to line up to get her vaccination.
