Caturday Fun Things

While I was busy cleaning my machine the mumster decided that she should have some fun.  So she finished the jobs by lunchtime and went out for a walk, as the weather was nice and we do have some cyclone circling above us that might hit next week.  So mum walked, she bought a new tshirt, she tried on lots of other clothes she did not buy, she looked at furniture, she helped some tourists with directions, she walked home, she stopped and bought an ice cream, she read her book, she watched a movie at home, she ate a tasty dinner, a mini spa treatment was done,  she lit candles, she made up a fresh bed and she patted a little grey pussy cat.

We hope you have some fun too.

It was a lovely Friday for mum as she had leave from work.  She got to sleep in which was wonderful and take a leisurely shower.  She then relaxed and watched some shows before getting ready to head out and get her hair cut.  She read magazines and relaxed as she got her hairs cut and coloured.  Then a little wander into town before coming home to relax for a while.  One of the girls was leaving from work, so there was dinner out which was a wood fired Margarita pizza followed by a lemon gelato.

Now two more days of relaxing - good on you mum you deserve it and I will help you.

Mum loves these beautiful bird photos from Freya Ever After such lovely photos of her birds and other pets.

Silent Treatment

I is not going to talk to you after you held me down to brush my furs.  It could be a noisy night for you.

We thought we would give you a smile for your week.  Last week mum decided to google one of her great uncles.  She found out that even though she knew hi as Uncle Jack, of course he was really called John - which mum and her brother never knew.  He was always lovely  to be with  and told lots of good stories, and grew the biggest tomatoes mum ever saw.

She was looking on the Wikitree site which lists at the bottom how many steps away you may be from some people.  Turns out old uncle Jack was only 16 steps away from Queen Elizabeth!!!  That makes mum 19 steps away from Queenie herself.  I wonder is she would get an invite to the Royal Wedding or dinner at Buckingham Palace?

It has kept mum smiling all week.

Mums night went like this:

  • Midnight - bedtime
  • 1am - too hot time to put the Fan on.
  • 2am - too cold fan off 
  • 3am - cat barfing noises, no vomit but she carried me to the back door
  • 4am - too hot, fan back on
  • 5am - toilet break
  • 5.30 am - passed out
  • 6am - alarm clock 
Better luck tonight mum.

It has been wet enough for the fishies today with non stop rain.  Mum and the visitors saw these beautiful fishes at the pet store.  She's not going to bring any home.  Is it sad that she likes to go round the pet store and say hello to the kittens, bunnies, birds and fish  (No puppies).  By the way this pet store brings in puppies and kittens from the SPCA/shelters to rehome, so no puppy mills.

Mum met a bestie for brunch this morning and then went to the library before heading home to read and nap.  She has enjoyed her day off.

We have had visitors come and stay.  Muss belle stayed in the mum bed.  I came in and meowed very loudly at 5am to let my displeasure be known and then at 6am to be let into the bedroom and under the covers.

All is quiet now - back to me and the Munster.

Enjoy your Caturday  - have some fun.

Went to bed at midnight in the spare room.  Woke up at 11.45 by mum with the Hoover.   Almost got to a full 12 hours.

 Look at the newness of the mattress.  Mum slept ok on it, although she was rather tired.  It has super springs and memory foam.  Can she say that she bought her last bed in 1996 so it was in need of replacing.
I had no problem with it.  I just climbed up and went to sleeps.  Mum is exhausted but is into day 5 of 7 so is almost there.  3 more afternoon shifts and then 3 days off to relax.  So there will be plenty more sleeping to be done.

Old Matress

 Mum went and looked at the sales in January and bought a new mattress.  She got a call to say it was ready, and today it got delivered.   As usual the couldn't give mum any idea of when they would deliver so she got up early and did some jobs.

She stripped the bed and washed all the linen.  She let me have one last snuggle on the old mattress, before she dragged it out into the hallway.
I came in and told mum that our bed was in a strange place.  She didn't listen and let some men take it away.  Then they bought our new mattress in.  Mum has made the bed but no time to test it until tonight.  It is a bit higher so she hopes that is ok for me.  I am a mighty jumper and should be fine.

Busy and Tired

Mum has been busy today and then gone to work all evening.  Day 3 if 7 so almost 1/2 way through.

Hanging out for Friday.

Saturday, February 3, 2018


 The temperatures dropped last night enough for mum to sleep well.   The quilt is back on the bed and I am happy .  I snuggled between mums knees for a time until she wiggled away.
 Sausage rolls for her lunch.  Washing done, carpets hoovered and a bit of tidying up done.
Lunch in front of the tv - today's viewing is the First Monday in May a documentary about the Met Ball Gala.  Then uniform on - pick up sushi for dinner and off to work.

Enjoy your Caturday - have some fun!

Mum has another long day of 7 days ahead so please forgive our short posts.  If she us not working she us trying to rest and sleep and do a few chores.   Me too  - without the chores or working part.

I ate all the new soft food but not the biscuits.  Luckily we can return those for a refund.

Big Day

 Today was a big day that begun with mum tossing and turning all night before finally falling asleep about 3am.  We had to be up early as it was my senior check day.
The vet was lovely and had a student with her too.  Today I was 6.2 kg, with some tartar buildup.  I still have my heart murmur and now have arthritis in my left knee.  So I have to lose some weight and try some new foods (Mum says that she needs to do the same thing too).  I tried the dinner and didn't mind it so we are off to a good start.  I had bloods taken away and a Brazilian butt shave - ouch.  Now I am home though and snoring on the bed next to mum.
 Mum zipped off and did some jobs this afternoon.  The wind was crazy as a big storm wss coming in.  She took a photo of the sunshine over our street and the big grey clouds when she looked in the other direction.
It is now pouring down.  Luckily mum came home early as she would have got soaked.

This is our friends lovely cat Dust.  He is quite the charmer and very friendly.  He lives the good life in a house by the beach where he can chase little lizards in the garden and he is wise enough to stay away from the chickens.  The late afternoon is the perfect time to stretch out in the shade and soak up the warmth of the brick pathway.

Dream Job

Mum dreams that she should to be the world taking photos of animals .  Plenty of people do it but boy it seems hard work, they sure don't like to stay still and pose.  So mum likes to practice with her friends chickens.

It is got in our city today, so mum has avoided being in the sun so that she doesn't burn to a crisp.  She has decided that she likes spring and autumn best.  Me too.

Mum went out to visit with her friends this afternoon.   It had been cloudy at our place but sunny and warm across the harbour.  Mum even rolled up her pants and went into the water up to her shins.  She is not fond of the seaweed and jellyfish that were floating round.

An hour after the photos were taken and mum was on her way home the clouds had rolled in.

Mum is trying to enjoy the summer weekends before they disappear.
