As mum left work there was a foggy autumnal mist descending over the city, and it has turned to rain this evening. Soon she will have to take a jacket and umbrella with her, and swap out her lightweight shoes for boots. The heater has been turned on to take the chill out of the air before bed.
Mum cooked a corned beef with vegetables for her dinner, something she doesn't make very often but it reminds her of her childhood. She offered me some beef, but i didn't want any. I got some temptations though, so I'm happy.

It was hot and sweaty as mum left work, and she melted once she got home from the supermarket. She had a vanilla ice cream to cool down and some glasses of cold water to make her cool down.
Now the skies have got darker and some thunder + lightning have started. Don't worry I'm already snoozing and haven't noticed yet.

She is horrendously tired and hopes that she is able to sleep well tonight. Last night she only managed a 3.5 hour snooze. She had only got to sleep at 3.30am, and I woke her up at 5am to tell her something very important, except i forgot what it was. Better luck tonight mum.

Every morning this week it has been cloudy and looking like rain, but clears and is lovely by the afternoon. So mum didn't stay in bed too long and washed all of her uniforms and clothes. Mum then soent some time trying to take photos of me in the garden, which i tolerated a little. Just a smidge. Best of all her night shifts are over.

Mum was on her way home when this little apricot neighbor came over and wanted some loving from my mum. She rolled around and begged for lots of pats from my mum, and mum saw her cute little nameband that said she was called April. Mum reassured her, and told her that her mum and dad would be home soon.

Tonight is super busy for mum. It may not even be a midnight feast for me, it might go on even later than that. I've got a big bowl of biscuits and fresh water so I won't starve, but I'll be ready as soon as she gets in the door.

Mum got up at 6am and was at work by 8, only to find out a colleague was sick, so she volunteered to go home and come back to work. 9am was a good time to get shopping, as all the workers were stocking up. So i was surprised to see her back home and had to give uo my spot so that she could have a nap.
Then she took herself back to work at 3pm for the evening and her planned week of day shifts has now turned to evening shifts. Oh well more sleep ins for us girls.

Mum then went for a wander and bought some new wash cloths, and bread. She felt very elderly ordering her dinner at 4pm, but she did not want to go out again once home. Iwas glad to have her home and got my dinner just after 4pm too.

After a bit of a jaggered week, mum had to turn off the news, switch off the internet and take herself out. Her bestie joined her at the museum to look at New Zealand painter Rita Angus exhibition. There were some lovely paintings, that even though they are 60+ years old would still look nice up on the wall.
The girls had lunch, then mum had a wander and ventured into shops for a couple of little treats. There had been protesters causing chaos in the city for a couple of weeks, and mum had avoided going into town. Now she wants to support local businesses that have had a tough time lately.
She got home by mid afternoon to join me in enjoying the warm sunshine. We relaxed, ate and napped together. Lovely.
