Simple Suppertime

 Our friend Coral has asked for pictures of mums dinners so the mumster took these two.  This was last night's chicken breast with baked potato and salad.
Tonight mum cooked sausages with mashed potato and steamed veg.  She enjoyed both meals - me I am not interested in mums food at all.

In both cases mum cooked enough dinner to last for 2 nights.  So there is leftovers to be used tomorrown or at the weekend.   Mum doesn't that so that she only has to cook 2-3 nights a week.  Other nights she is happy with soup and toast or something easy .  She is trying to eat more veg and has cut back on her pasta/rice/bread consumption by about half in the past year.

Me - I am happy with my feast.

I am feeling Betterer and back to normal today after my upset tummy yesterday.  I am eating and drinking as normal so mum isn't worried about me anymore.   Mum came home and talked to me and gave my furs a big brush which I enjoyed.

She made a chicken schnitzel for her dinner with salad.  It looked great but was a bit meh!!!  Don't your folks hate that!!

Sore Tummy

I woke mum up with a sore tummy.  Nothing like the sound of me being sick to get her up in a hurry.   I then wanted a cuddle.  I am OK now and have eaten my supper.  Mum has checked on me and she is not worried, but just a little sad that I am poorly.

Sunday Spot

You may be sick of photos of me on mums bed, but in reality it is where I spend 80% of my time at the moment.   We had a lovely sunny day yesterday, but got a cold rainy day today.  Mum managed to zip out between rain showers and met a bestie for the final film at the film festival.   She then went and got some supplies in.

Mum got home just  as the rain started pouring which was good as the groceries stayed dry.  She got my feast ready and then we had a nap for an hour.  Mum made some spicy chilli mince which she had with salad and wraps.

I am still in the bed keeping it warm for mum - my best job.

Sunbeam Caturday

Hello sunshine, we haven't felt 18deg c for some time, but you popped out and warmed us up today.  Mum was up with her bladder this morning again, but it was drizzly to start with, so she was slow to get the chores started.

Washing went on the line to get some vitamin d and mum opened up all of the windows and let the breezes in.  She watched a couple of shows and read some of her book.  She tried to comb me, but I didn't tolerate it for too long.

Mum got me a feast for dinner, and some leftovers for herself.  Now mum might put a face mask on and sit on the couch for an hour or two.

We hope you all have something fun planned for your Caturday.

Hello Friday - it is always a good start to the weekend when the mumster has a day off. Middle aged lady bladder prevented her sleep in - at least I didn't get the blame for that one.  Mum gave me lots of pets and cuddles, which I tolerated for a bit.  Then she went out for the day.

I got to stare out the window and watch my birdies.  They sure look tasty.

The Huntress

OK we have to confess.   Mum found the mousie behind the curtain, and thinks it may have died of fright.  Anyways she will sleep better knowing the mouse is not crawling around eating my biscuits.  Still I will take my moment of glory.

The day was nice, it cleared after a  it of rain.  Mum went walking and got some groceries.   She needed to stick up a bit.  She made chicken/broccoli Alfredo pasta and a salad, with lots of leftovers.   There are grapes for supper and now the evening is cooling down, so the heaters on and time to start relaxing.   There is a documentary about Glen Campbell on TV that she started watching, very interesting and sad.

Have you caught any wildlife lately?

Tuesday already.  The mumster has this week off for a little staycation and she is enjoying our sleep ins and relaxing.  This morning she did not have to be up until 8am, and I came and snuggled with her twice.

She saw a couple of movies at the film festival in town and had a tasty lunch out of a filo parcel with Thai chicken filling and the nicest salad mum has had in a while.   She even got to pop into the library, and read a whole small book in the 2 hours she was there.

She headed home just as the rain started, so jacket and boots are drying.  There is no sign of the mouse that I had last night so mum hopes it has truly gone.  Me well I kept our side of the bed warm.

Mouse House

Mum did make the mistake of telling someone recently that it had been a couple of years since I had caught either a mouse or a bird.  Big mistake.

So in the afternoon mum heard me race around the bedroom and then bathroom and then saw me potter into the lounge chasing a little mouse.  She shut the doors to the rest of the house,  and opened the front door.  I did spend an hour trying to find mickey mouse, and mum hopes it got away outside and is not still inside.

I mean while have eaten my dinner and gone to bed.  I am zonked after my busy afternoon.

Mum was content to stay at home today with me.  It rained on and off a d the only time she left the house, was to step outside and feed the local birdies.

It was lovely for us to relax and just take it easy.

We hope that you have had a chance to relax today too.

Casual Caturday

The mumster and I had a little lie in this morning which was lovely.  The sun was shining so mum couldn't lay about too long.  Dishes had to be done and then mum bought out the vacuum cleaner- so I was off.

Mum took off in the afternoon to meet a bestie.   They had a wander and did a  little shopping and a little eating.

So now she is home - I've had my feast and is it sad to say that she is ready for bed at 9.15pm?  We hope you are having a lovely Caturday.

The Mumster had a lovely day off, she got another sleep in and a couple of cuddles with me, then she headed off to the film festival to see this sweet film Kedi.  (if you click the link it will take you to the trailer).  It is a documentary about the street cats of Istanbul and was just delightful, following them round to see how where they eat and sleep and the people who take care of them.  There were some lovely shots over the city and amazing harbor, a place that the mumster was lucky enough to travel to over 20 years ago.  She enjoyed her holiday very much, and says the people were lovely and there were some amazing towns and beaches to visit.

She did feel a tad guilty watching the movie, as she realized that she may have left me at home without a big supply of biscuits.  Naughty mum.   So she got a bit of telling off when she got home, but at least I ate most of my dinner tonight.

Hope you are ready for the weekend - something fun planned?

How can it not be a nice day when it starts off with a rainbow in the neighbors garden?  Of course the mumster only got the camera in time for one budget shot- hardly any instagram winner.

Mum got to snuggle with me this morning and relax at home.  She then went and saw a couple of film festival shows.  Then a quick walk to get some exercise and a few groceries and home again.

Tuesday, August 1, 2017


I'm back in the mumsters good books again.  We've had cuddles and conversations.   Mum had an early bird start to her day, she thinks the birds were not even up as she left home.  Best of all as she left work is the thought that she is going to give herself some time off to recharge her batteries and spend some time with me.

Mum was a bit annoyed with me tonight.   Yup see she got home at 2.40pm today and I started asking for my dinner.  She said no it was too early.  So I communicated my displeasure by scratching the chair. She said no!!  So I came back and scratched it more.

Rather than big growls, mum lay down on her bed and read her book and ignored me until 5pm when she finally got up and dished out my dinner.

It is cold again  tonight though - so I am sure we can be friends again.

How are you my furriends?  Are you having a relaxing day?  Mum couldn't figure out why I came and sat on her twice this morning, then she checked her phone and it said the temperature was a cool 2 degree C.

She got up early and went out to the seaside to have lunch with some lovely friends.  She took no photos, so instead will leave you with this movie she took of me later night.  In case you don't talk cat - I am telling her to hurry up and make the bed. (Sorry we can't get the video to load and play.  They don't make it easy for middle aged mumsters).

Enjoy your Sunday.

Caturday Mooching

The mumster and I did next to nothing today.  A bit of washing was done and mum did air the bed.  She tidied the bathroom and swept the floors.  She also slept in, read her book, watched some shows, did some sudoku and ate some food.

Mum also got dressed up and went and saw a movie with a bestie friend - Beatriz at Dinner which was a 3/5.  Then they went for dinner, thinking they were going to  the Italian Pizza restaurant they ended up at the wrong place.  It was Italian with a similar name and they stayed, and the food was OK, the garlic bread was delicious.   When they left they realized the restaurant they thought they were going to was three doors down.   First world problems.

So now mum is home, the heaters are on and mum is ready to take her make up off and put her feet up.

We hope you are having a nice Caturday and get to do something fun.
