 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 and I had a quiet evening.   Chicken vegetable noodles for dinner for mum and a feast for me.  Snuggles on the bed and now mum better finish the dishes so that she can go to bed.  Another exciting evening at Chez Q.

Not Today

 No blue skies  here today.  Heavy clouds, rain and cold it's been a chilly one today.  Mums going to put her fleecy pajamas on tonight.   Me - well I wear mine everyday.

Daylight Savings

 Daylight Savings started this morning so mum knows it us going to be another reason for her to be tired this week.  She watched The Secret Life of Pets 2 last night and this scene perfectly pictured how she felt this morning.

 Had a little smooch with my birdie today.  Windy and cool here today.  Mum had some plans, but decided to stay home and relax.  Not every day needs to be busy.  She read her book and talked to me.  Perfect.

Pocket Money

 Mum I found something on the internet that I needs you to get me.  Can you use my pocket money to buy me one?  P.S - it's the massager I want - not the clothes.

 Mum has had another shift.  She is trying to look at the positives - a sleep in, time to get some chores done and brunch with me.

Tuesday, September 21, 2021


 The flowers are starting to bloom everywhere over the city.  Flowers and sunshine.  Perfect.

Ear Savers

 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.

New Toy

 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.

 Gosh it's been cold here the past two days.  A blast from the south has made us turn the heaters back on and mum has reached for the jacket and boots again.  We'll be glad when the weather settles again.  

Thursday, September 16, 2021


 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.

Wordless Wednesday



 I spent some time outside rubbing on the posts today before it got too cold.   Then back inside.

Monday, September 13, 2021


 Mum saw her first blossoms this morning.   It was hard to get a photo as it was so windy.  Mum ventured out to get some fresh air and give me a break.

Sunday, September 12, 2021


 Today mum attempted the brushing.  I only tolerated 5 minutes and then needed a snooze.  The sun was lovely, but soon the cloud and winds rolled in.  Spring weather can be a bit crazy.

Saturday, September 11, 2021


 Mum you brush me tomorrow.   I'm too sleepy today.  I rest here til you come home from work.

Friday, September 10, 2021


 Mum gave me a brush today and noticed my bottom is still a bit sticky, so some dingle berries got pinched and I got a bit of a clean.  Phase 2 tomorrow is a more detailed brushing.   Only if she can catch me?

 Mum needs a pause.  She's four days into another boutique of evening shift and she's in need of a few sleep ins.  No alarms for the next five days.

 My bag had to have an emergency bag wash this evening as I had an episode of what mum describes as sticky butt.  My bag was a bit stinky so it got washed.  The good thing is it's a quick dry bag and an hour later was back in its rightful position on the mama bed.

Monday, September 6, 2021


 Mum you head off to work.  I'll be fine.  Mum did not enjoy the 6am alarm clock.  Her fitbit said she'd only managed a 3.5 hour sleep.  I can do 7 times that in a day.

Sunday, September 5, 2021


 For 3 hours this afternoon it was perfect and felt like spring.   Mum felt the change coming, the sun and blue skies are getting better each week.  Washing when dried on the line outside.

Lie In

 The mumster was tired this morning after another afternoon shift.  So I decided to meow at her for 10 minutes and then lie down and snooze while she read her book.  Then she thought she best get up and do some chores.  Before she knew it it was time for work again.  I'll be glad that she has a whole day off to relax tomorrow. 

Friday, September 3, 2021


 She's working again.   It'll be a midnight feast for my dinner tonight.

Hello September

 Well we've got signs of spring happening here.  Tui birds are singing loudly in the mornings, the sun is getting warmer and moving round and mum feels like eating more salads and less soup.  Mum is back on some afternoon shifts again and she is trying to see the positives and enjoy sleeping in.
