Mum is on the evening shift again.  She had had a hankering for a Shepherd/cottage pie.  So after work last night she bought the ingredients.

She got herself up early this morning to make her dinner.  The laundry got done, groceries put away and the rubbish was taken out.

Me - well I slept on the bed, on the chair and outside on the lawn.

I am feeling smooth and tidy today after my spa visit.  I went and sat on mum a couple of times overnight to thank her.  She appreciated that, as she was thinking her four hour sleep was too long (she was on call).

The day outside was sunny and warm today.  So mum took herself out after work for a walk.  She visited the library and visited the supermarket in town.  She made a nice dinner of a chicken curry and rice and vegetables.   She used a new sachet of curry that she had seen her friend eat at work.   Unfortunately it didn't agree with mum - she has a sensitive tummy and she knows pretty soon after dinner if it disagrees with her.

Never mind.  Speaking of new foods, the vet encouraged her to buy some new dental biscuits for me to try.  $37 a bag (our supermarket ones are $11).  Wish us luck!!!

Birthday Spa

Mum did not tell me that I won a spa treatment for my birthday.  What a lucky lucky girl.  I had to go to the spa this afternoon to get a summer Brazilian of my trouser pants region.

I also got weighed and am back to 6.15kg, my previous surgery weight.  Mum always gets growled.  Still she refuses to starve me, and every time she does feel guilty but is she takes away biscuits I take away her sleep.   Now she is having to try to give me some dental biscuits each night.  Good luck with that plan.

Happy Caturday Birthday To Me

Today it is my birthday.   Mum woke up and sing to me - not impressed.  Sheets off the bed and all day to roll around on the mattress - much happier.

Mum went out , as the day was sunny to meet a bestie for lunch.  She had their kedgeree, a rice and smoked fish dish which was tasty and much better than it sounds.

She came back to give me a birthday feast and now us girls are relaxing.  I will show you my birthday present tomorrow.

Oh and today I is 11 years old!!

Bday Eve

It is a big day for me tomorrow- it is my birthday on Caturday.   Mum had a day off today and didn't do too much.  It was cold and drizzly outside.  She finally ventured out in the afternoon and went to the library and got some fried rice for her dinner.

I had a feast and went to bed early to make sure I get enough sleep for my big day tomorrow.

Comfort Towel

I had a little upset tummy this morning.  Luckily mum caught me while I was starting to do that movement that starts of the biscuit vomit.  I got outside rather than be si k on the carpet.  So I then wanted a sleep.  Mum let me have her towel to sleep on which always makes me feel better.  It is always good to have a sleep when you are sick.

Grey Day

It's a grey day here in the city with spring rain.  Mum let me climb on her spot once she got out if bed.  So there is no chance of straightening the bedding today.  She's off to work now anyways.

Howdy folks.  The mumster finished her shift last night so I had a midnight feast dinner.  She slept in today and then got up , showered and pottered around.  Dinner for tonights shift was prepared, rice , veg and meatballs.  She gets to start and finish a bit earlier tonight, so has plans to head to the supermarket after work. 

We hope your Caturday is a bit more fun than ours!!

Mum is now on another week of afternoon shift.  Sleep ins are good but I miss her in the evening.

Mum did nothing today.   She decided to stay away from the city and just relax at home with me.  She washed clothes and avoided all other jobs and just talked to me.  I'm happy.

Even here in little old New Zealand people have been glued to their phones watching the news channels about Las Vegas in disbelief.   At work mums colleagues were thinking about the victims and how busy the hospital staff would be.  Mum is reluctant to discuss politics here.  She will say that in her 30 years at the hospital she has only ever seen 4 gunshot victims.  Two were duck shooters accidentally shot by other shooters and two were criminals shot by the police.

Mum thought you might like to see our new latest duvet.  The past few days the days have been warm and sunny, with the promise of the warmest six months of the year to come.  I took to it straight away.

Mumster Monday

The best part about mum working on Sunday, was that she got to have a Mumster Monday.  She got to sleep in with me, and potter round in the morning.  After weeks of rain, the skies appeared clear, so mum got piles of washing hanging out in the fresh air.

Then she headed out and saw Victoria and Abdul, which she enjoyed a lot.  She went for a walk around to enjoy the sunshine, and then came home to relax with me.

Chicken Alfredo was made for her dinner and eggs boiled so that lunch can be made for the next couple of days.  She is going to go and chop up a pineapple so there is fruit for smoothies.   Oh so organized mum.

Best of all - I get to help her make the bed.  So I'm happy too.

Caturday Apology

I is sorry Mum for having a super stinky bum this morning mum.  I is sorry for smearing it all over your favorite shopping bag.  I am sorry for trying to run away as you tried to clean me up.

I hope I made your Caturday special Mum.
