The lamp gave me an angelic glow don't you think? Mum was up early today and at work before sunrise, so it was a nice surprise to come home and see the sun shining for a while. Mum attacked me for a brush and comb of the mattered fur on my chest and tummy tonight, she is lucky that she has any fingers or skin left. B

This was the lovely Puss, the girl that loved mum before me. She came through mums window one day and moved herself in. She loved cuddles and being talked to, and her favorite thing was rubbish bag night, when she would walk mum round the cul de sac they lived in. She would chat to mum the whole time and purr as they walked past all the houses, often at 10pm at night.

This was the awesome Rastus that mum grew up with, in a photo dated feb 1984. He was a fabulous mancat , he roamed our neighborhood playing most of the day and spent each night pinning mum to the bed. If she moved at all, he purred super loudly for an hour keeping mum awake. It made mum sad to leave him when she had to go away for her studies, and he lived a few more years of his retirement with her mum and dad.

Ok while our northern hemisphere friends are sweltering we've had a chilly wintery day. Mum finished at 8pm, and got some groceries on the way home, might as well buy the heavy items to bring home in the uber. Her arms a bit sore, she had a 2nd Covid vaccination yesterday, but no fevers or feeling sick like she had with earlier ones. She got home and has put the heaters on, but might as well get into bed early with her book and me.

The clouds were rolling in as mum left for work for her afternoon shift. She had a great nights sleep, she said there was no howling done at all. So she was productive this morning and got washing done and hoovering too.
This winter has been mild, she hasn't pulled out scarves or beanies yet. We even don't need a heater on some evenings. Long may it last.

There's a new wintry stormy thing in the approach to New Zealand today, and as mum left work this afternoon it was just beginning to spit lightly. She found these blue flowers were blooming early, usually they spring to life a bit later in the year. She can never retain names of flowers/plants or remember rules to card games or chess.

After another wintery windy, rainy night the weather cleared for a couple of hours this afternoon. Mum took herself out to return some books at the library and go for a few items at the supermarket. She seems to have a knack for spending $80 each time she visits.
I went outside and took a wee nap in the chair while the sun was out. We each felt better after some fresh air.

Yesterday was my usual vet visit. I had an arthritis injection and a little weugh in. I have dropped to 5kg, but got a clean bill of health from another new lady vet. So lots of treats when I got home and a fair amount of sulking from me for the afternoon. All better now though.

Mum was looking at ETSY this weekend, and there is an explosion of high quality cat beds on the site. I of course love my mums bed and sleeping on the old electric blanket that is left on the soare bed for me (it is never turned on, I just like sleeping on its floofiness).

Mum was excited to go the cinema in the afternoon go see Elvis. She's old enough to know all the story, but was just a girl when he died so Elvis was more her mums thing. Look its a Baz film, with lots of flash and big scenes, but that suits such a showman. It is long and lags in the middle and yet 2.5 hours is not long enough to cover his whole life. Mum did enjoy the music and thought the leads did an awesome job. 4/5

Mum found 8 large bags of chicken temptations at the supermarket last night. She only bought one. Sneakily there was no price tag where they were, but mum wasn't going to leave without them. At 11.30pm there weren't any workers round to ask, but they were $14 NZ when she paid for them. Enough to last for quite some time.
