 Just chilling today.  How about you?

Sunday, October 30, 2022


 Saturday was a bit of a right off, it poured all day and mum had to go to work.  Today was better as the clouds disappeared at lunchtime,  so mum took herself out for a walk.  She went to pay for something at the shop, and realized she had left her card at home, luckily she had some old fashioned cash on her.

Mum feels ready for the weekend ahead.  Uniform is out and ready and she's off to make Mondays lunch.  Nite nite.

We woke up to naughty neighbor visiting us.  We don't know his/her real name, but they like to pass through our garden during the day.

 We watched the clouds thicken all day today.  Mum did some chores and i rotated through the sleeping spots.  By the time I reached the little chair, it was time for mum go put down the duster.  She got herself ready and went into town to meet a bestie for a fruity cocktail and a tasty but pricy dinner.  She got home and on the couch, when the rain started.  Pheww good timing mum.

Mum got herself off earlish this morning as she had an appointment with the optician to get her eyes checked.   She has only been wearing glasses for 2 years  and wanted to make sure there were no changes which was good.   She wandered round town, just window shopping,  then her need for a bathroom visit and some lunch encouraged her to come home to me.

She's been trying to watch  some of the series she has saved up on her DVR, she's  watched The Gilded Age, Bloodlands and now Belgravia.  She has a pile of good books to read, and me for company.  Things to keep her busy, and fill in her evenings.

 Today felt wintery, only 8 deg C and spitting rain.  The weekend warmth and blue skies forgotten.

 The flowers are enjoying the spring sunshine  and mum is enjoying all the bright colours.

 I was not thrilled to have an early alarm wake up today, but mum offered to work for her boss this morning.   It was a good shift today and before she knew it, the work day was over and mum was coming home to me.  Mum wonders what I think she does all day - hide down the street,  hunt for food,  sleep in the garden?

 Mum is always on the lookout for bunches if pretty flowers.  We can't afford them on our budget, but a photo is free.

Day Off

 Mum had a day off work today and enjoyed not having the alarm go off at 5.30am.  Imstead we slept in until 8am which was lovely as it was cold this morning.   Mum had to pull out a merino jumper and her puffer jacket and she met a bestie for a cafe lunch.  The girls then went and saw Mrs Harris Goes to Paris, which was sweet and charming.  A smiley 4/5.

On the way home mum stopped at this wee shop.  The owners dog ran up for a greeting, then ran round the shop before plopping herself on the bed in the window which made mum smile.  She got a few treats at the supermarket - gerkins and grapes, and a minestrone soup for her dinner.

A great day off.

 Mum got some nice shots of the evenings sunset, beautiful at 8pm.  She enjoyed her sleep in, and then the walk to work in some beautiful sunshine.   She finished work and rushed through the supermarket, buying a few essentials and treats.  Her uber driver was nice, but missed her turnoff and they had to circle round again.  She didn't mind, she knew I'd be waiting, but no stress.  I was waiting outside by the back door meowing at her as she came down the steos beside our house, ready for my dinner.

 What a nice start to the week.

Sunday, October 16, 2022


 Today was a lovely spring day with blue skies and finally some warm sunshine.   Mum got herself some spring flowers to brighten the garden.  I haven't sniffed them yet, but mum keeps admiring them.  Shes also liking the windows after she cleaned them.  

Saturday, October 15, 2022


 Thank you all for the birthday wishes - you are all lovely.   It's been a chilly couple of days, with the humans resorting to wearing puffer jackets and scarves.  The sun is meant to be returning tomorrow and mum captured the nice sky tonight.  Shes got plans to get up early and wash all of her uniforms and towels.

Mum went and met a bestie for bagels for lunch.  Mum got a Reuben - very tasty, but she had to do a quick bathroom dash not long after eating.   The girls went and saw the Julia Roberts/George Clooney Ticket to Paradise movie. She says it was a bit of an outdated cheesy movie and just a 2/5.  Save your money.

Mums tired, she might even manage a whole nights sleep tonight.

 Happy birthday to me!!!  I'm sweet 16 today and been kissed lots.  Mum spent all day singing to me and filling my tummy with treats.  She finished her night shifts this morning,  and had a nap before going out to the library and supermarket.   It's been cold here, and she didn't want to be out too long.  So we're relaxing tonight and mum has her fingers crossed that she gets some sleep tonight.  The heaters are on, and I'm tucked up asleep on mums bed dreaming sweet birthday dreams.

One More

 One more night shift, then I can stop making the sad  eyes at mum because she's on my spot on the bed.

 Mums on night shift, so we are having a battle of the bed again.  I like to sleep on her bed, so i let her use it from 9am - 1pm, but enough was enough.    She let me have it for a couple of hours, and then I moved onto the little chair.  For mum she had another couple of wee naps but not enough sleep and is tired going into her 2nd shift.  Fingers crossed she gets a few more hours rest tomorrow.

 Mum was taking some photos of me this afternoon and noticed how gooby my eves looked.  She had to pin me down and gave them a clean with a warm damp cloth, and they look much better now.   I got lots of treats, kisses and then my dinner so I'm good now.

 Mum decided that she spent enough money out on Saturday and that today she eould relax at home with me and not spend any dollars.   Im happy.

 The mumster had a big day.  Up early, washing machine loaded and on the line, then she walked to work and did an extra shift which was nice to be finished by midday.  She took herself out to lunch and then went for a wander.  She bought a couple of items, then caught the bus home.  She found me napping on the chair again, and we chatted for a while.

I got my dinner at 4pm and then us girls napped on the bed, lying in the warm delicious sun.  Now mum is going to have a yogurt and spring strawberries for supper while she plans tomorrows day off.  Movies or shopping and a walk in the sun.

 It's sunny but chilly here.  Thank goodness it's Friday says mum, although she has to work tomorrow morning.  She bought herself a payday treat today, a new saucepan after burning her other one, cooking rice this week.  The highlight of the day, besides seeing me!

 Our polar blast wasn't too bad in our city,  although many New Zealand cities are blanketed in snow today.  We had hail and thunder last night, and cooler temperatures today.  Mum came home in the sunshine to find me snuggled up snoozing in the sunshine.   She got a quick snap before I jumped down. 

Mum had an easy dinner.  She made a spicy beef mince last night.  Delicious on toast for dinner and as a toastie for lunch.  Four meals out of one dish + 2 servings in the freezer.  Good economical cooking for one person.

 The sun was out for the day today, although it is still chilly.  Mum didn't have to start work until midday and appreciated a sleep in.  Then washing could be done in the morning and a leisurely brunch while watching her shows.  I sat in the garden for a while, to soak up some rays.

She stopped off and got some groceries after work at 8pm, as might as well get an uber home while it's dark and her arms are full.  Now she can come straight home after work on weds and thurs.  The local supermarket used to be open until midnight,  but now shuts at 10pm.  A bit frustrating for the hospital staff where most of our shifts finish at 11pm.  So mum now has to be a bit more organized. 

So after a late supper and a chat with mum, I'm napping on the bed.  Mum is watching a show  and putting the groceries away.  She's going to scrub her face, brush her teeth and comb her hair, then she's turning in ready to read her book for a while.

Monday, October 3, 2022


 Today was a day of relaxation again.  Mum had given herself a day off work to relax and remember her mum whose birthday was today.  If the weather had been better mum was going to go out for lunch and buy some flowers,  but the day was cold and drizzly again.  She popped out for groceries and a library visit but was glad to come home, put the heater on and read her book.

We are due for a southerly spring storm mid week, which brings freezing overnight temperatures and possible snow.  October is often like this a mix of summer beautiful days sandwiched between weeks of rain.  

Mum can't wait for sandals and shorts weather.

Sunday Shopping


Mum was looking on the internets today and found these.  You can find them on ETSY if you look for cat custom stamps.

Saturday, October 1, 2022


 I helped mum sleep in and have a nap today.  I did not help her do the washing or the dishes.  It was quite the relaxing day, just what mum needed.  It's meant to be pouring down tomorrow so mum is planning it might be another stay at home day.
