Sunday Gift


Today when mum got home she found the 2nd gift of the week.   Tonight I gift you a deaded sparrow.  On your bed - on your new quilts.  I love you mum xxx

 Mum ordered herself a Wonky Box last week which arrived on Thursday.   It delivers for her every 3 weeks a box with 7 varieties of vegetables and 3 fruits.  She got some potatoes, 5 onions, 1 large zuccini, a bunch of carrots, 1 Romaine lettuce, 1 Sweetcorn, a cucumber, 5 feijoas, 6 apples and 6 mandarins.  All things she will eat and all fresh from local suppliers, and good value for money.  Mum also likes that it is delivered to her door ready to be eaten.

Friday Gift

 Mum got home and saw the present I got her today.  I left it right in the middle of the bed.  She told me I was a good girl and a mighty hunter for 16 years old, although she wondered if it was already deaded when I found it.

 My fishie had had a wee holiday under a pile of jumpers, and I'm so glad mum found him again.   I napped on him in the sun on my shopping bag on the big bed while mum pottered about.  Life is good!!

Mr bug was on the door when mum was going to work today.  He didn't mind her going past or taking his photo.

 It was drizzly and cool today so we both snuggled in our beds today and mum got no jobs done, but her first 8 hour sleep in weeks. She loves having me in her bedroom at night, and the late night howling has stopped ( I often sleep in the spare bedroom and call out for her).

Saturday, April 22, 2023


Mum is working again tonight and she is hoping that the predicted sun will come tomorrow and she can get the washing done and go for a morning walk.  Fingers crossed.

 Today was not too sunny so mum tackled the pile of dishes, then dragged the hoover round.  So she feels better that some chores are done before the weekend starts.  Then a quick snuggle with me that I tolerated, then she was off to work.

 Mum washed my little bed at the weekend and reassembled it.  It's been about 6 months since I've slept here.  She found a bathmat that she bought on a whim, but never used.  It had been relegated to the charity shop pile, but mum decided that it would be good under my little bed to keep me toasty warm.  On top is my Gizzy quilt made by my friend Lynne.  I still love it and like snoozing on my winter bed.  Best of all mum turned the heating pad on to keep me all toasty warm.

 Mum gets some crazy looks as she stops go take photos of flowers on her walk, but she loved these pink flowers which are ready to curl up and drop.  

Mum slept terribly last night, she tossed and turned until 4.30am and then was annoyed when the 8am alarm went off.  Her day off wasn't too planned and the grey day meant she took it easy.  After lunch she went to the library to return four books and picked up two.  Groceries were heavy and oh so pricey.  Still she enjoyed roast peri peri chickem fir dinner with roasted pumpkin, carrots and broccoli. 

Lunch is made for tomorrow and mum hopes tonight she gets a better nights sleep.

 Today was mums day off today.  She got some washing done and a couple of other chores.  She read her book and chatted to me.  Tomorrow she'll get out snd about, but today she relaxed and enjoyed her home time.

Morning Sun

 Before mum went to work I joined her in the garden. She pulled out a couple of weeds and picked up a few passionfruit.  See you later mum.

 It was looking bright and cheery outside the supermarket today.  Autumnal flowers to brighten up your house.  Mums trying to think of the things that make her happy each day and these flowers made her smile.

mum went for a walk this morning and popped into this lovely shop.  Their gorgeous pup was worn out from all the attention she was getting.

 Mum felt productive this morning, after getting herself ready she made her work lunch and got the weekly rubbish sorted out.  She had a nice walk to work listening to a podcast - her latest series is Kathy Burkes series Here Lies - todays episode she talks to Jennifer Saunders about what she wants to happen at her funeral.

  The weather is mild enough for short sleeves on the walk to work at 8am, but after work at 5pm it is starting to feel like jacket weather.  Mum got to chat with a work friend on the way home, got a new library book.  She was glad to see me when she got home.  A feast for me and she had some chucken, roast pumpkin and beans.  Yumm!!

 Every day I try to find a good resting spot.  A bit if sunshine helps.

Monday, April 10, 2023


 Last night and today were grey off and on and this evening we had thunder and heavy rain off and on.  Mum and I have had a relaxing couple of days with much book reading snd napping, a good way to recover from her nughtshifts.

 Mum let me borrow her shopping bag to nap on today and I enjoyed the fresh smells.

 Mum and I went outside this afternoon and mum thought she would get a few cute photos, but I kept doing the old 'look away' and would not pose for her.  It did make her laugh!!

 It's Good Friday here, and mum got to leave the call phone at work this morning and head home.  She did some washing and had a couple of hot cross buns on the couch in honor of the holiday.   After talking to me for a while she needed to sleep.

So tonught she has made some chicken curry and planted herself on the couch.  She has to get back to sleeping again and I am going to help her.

 This morning I was settled in the prime position on the bed.   Not letting mum near her spot.  Graciously she slid into the other side of the bed and pulled up the covers.  No sooner had she closed her eyes, snd annoyed by her breathing I jumped off the bed snd moved to the spare room.

Mum got 4 hours of rest and then went for her haircut, pharmacy visit, library stop and groceries.   One more night to go on nightshift and it's Good Friday tomorrow- a four day holiday here.

 Mum laughed at this one!   It sure was fun being a kitten.

 It's a bit blurry, but this picture still makes mum smile!

 The 2nd night of nightshift is always hardest for mum as her body struggles to adjust to swapping sleeping times.  When mum headed to bed at 8.30am this morning she got into her side, but I constantly meowed at her from 11am to midday wanting my spot back.  So she got up, had some lunch and then went back to bed, sleeping on the other side of the bed so I could continue snoozing ( the side I am sitting on in this photo).

I still sat and meowed at her for an hour.  She can't figure out what I want, but I know she'll work it out soon.
