Apparently our city is under a fanmeggedon - it has sold out of fans.  Lucky us mum got ours early.  Last night mum slept on the covers with the Fan going.  She was on call but didn't get called in which is sometimes worse than going to work. 

Mum got a cooked chicken and some salad for her dinner - easy peasy.  Me I nibbled on my feast a bit.

 It is a bit nicer tonight closer to 10pm and all the doors and windows are wide open.  We live in a safe neighborhood and although mum closes up when we go to sleep she feels safe sitting here feeling the breeze.  Do you feel safe where you live?

Holy moly it's rather hot here today.  Mum was glad to be at work in the air conditioning today.  She went for a wee walk after work but it was too hot.  So she had to come home and have a big cold drink.  She then shut the curtains and put the Fan on and lay down next to me.

Mum didn't dish out dinner until 8pm and it cooled down a touch.  Mum could only handle a cold salad for her dinner - cooking is too hard in this heat.

Mum bought a new pillow today.  I think I love it.

Summer Caturday

After a rainy week we got a slice of summer today.  There was sunshine and hotness which was lovely.  Mum loaded up the washing line and I chillaxed trying to keep cool.  Mum went and met her friends for a drink and cake, got some things from the market and made it home with some time to chill out.

Hope your day was as relaxing as ours and you did something fun.

Mum had a bit of a rough sleep last night and the alarm went off far too soon.  Her working day was not too bad though and she got to go out for dinner with a bestie.  Then it was home for a little nap.

The good thing is that mum is tired and tonight is ready for more than a four hour sleep.   Me too - I'm ready for a full night sleep and the weekend to begin.

Thai Teatime

Thai meatballs with salad for dinner - it's a winner!  Today was a bonus day for mum.  She got called in overnight and got the day off work today.  She was rather tired though and even thought she would be productive all day - she was not.  She napped and napped again.  I was helping her.
It's hard being a helper cat - she wouldn't stay in bed all day with me.  Naughty mum.

Green Grass

We know that many if our kitty friends live inside and aren't able to go outside and explore.  We wanted to show you that I love chewing on our green grass.  Cats chew on grass to get nutrients and aid digestion.  It can also make you a little sick but mum says every cat she has had has loved being out in the garden.

Tonight's dinner: periperi panko crumb coated fish with roasted corn and potatoes and salad.  Looked good but mum overcooked it and was a touch dry.

Mum got hone from work and it was a bit hot, so she pulled the curtains, turned on the Fan and lay down next to me for an hour.  Bliss.

Like most cats I have mastered the art of looking away from the camera.  Tonight I wanted to be left alone.  To not be disturbed.   I'd still like some pats and treats though.

Mum had a bit of a middle-aged lady sleep last night.  She read her book and I got a couple of mire cuddles than I usually do.  After buying the Fan it's turned cold - typical.

Mum met a bestie for lunch which was nice.  She looked on the internet last night for new beds and mattresses.  She found one that looked a good deal so she trecked out to the shop at the other end of town, only to find that building had been demolished!!  Apparently they haven't been there for 2 years!! Anyways mum found the new shop on the internets and tracked back into town.  She then test drove a mattress with a little snooze and picked a new one fir us.  Since she bought ours in 1995 she doesn't feel too bad.

Also mum doesn't like the stores policies if jacking the prices of beds up so high so that they can look generous discounting them.  Some shops are selling beds for  $5-7,000 the price of a good second hand car.  Mum did not pay anything like that, but she was a bit shocked when doing her research on the internet.

So it won't be ready for a couple of weeks but mum is looking forward to the super springs, wool and gel layers and comfort topper!

Hope you are all having a lovely Caturday and doing something fun.

Fan of the Fan

Hello fan - I think I love you.  Mum turned you on last night and I was very brave and climbed up on the bed and lay down.   It was lovely.   A bit noisey but oh so cool.

Today we have the tail end if a storm blowing in so we won't need your services, but see you at the weekend.

We have been watching the news - we hope all of our friends in the US are safe from that crazy storm - keep warm and safe.

Filling Up

 After the flu epidemic that mum suffered over the holidays she is trying to pile on the fruit and veg.  This morning she made a blueberry/strawberry/banana/pineapple drink.  Tasty and full of vitamin c.
 Tonight she came home and made a chicken broccoli pasta and dished it up with a pile of coleslaw.  Tasty and filling and a big pile of leftovers.
We have been having the hots here and the past few nights have been a bit hard to get any sleep.  So mum gave in after work and bought a fan.  At only $30 Mum doesn't feel guilty that she won't need to use it 9 months of the year.  Of course tonight the rain has arrived and the temperature has dropped enough to make it much more comfortable.   Oh well we are ready for the hot nights now.

Last Day of Lazy

It is the last day of lazy here at chez Q.  Tomorrow morning mum has to arise to her alarm clock and head off to work.  Today was rather glorious with 27deg c.  Mum went for a walk in the late afternoon and stood in the air conditioned book shop for an hour.  She popped into some other shops to buy summer blueberries, grapes and salad. 

Tonight's sunset was lovely again.  This one was about 9.10pm - we love the long summer evenings.  We have 3 days of rain forecast so mum may have to dust off her umbrella.

Have a lively evening everyone.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all our friends.  This was the first sunset of 2018 and we were glad to have a lovely day.  Mum and I got to sit in the garden and chill out today - a good quiet start to our year.  Wishing you all a happy and healthy year ahead.

Chasing Butterflies

It's New Years Eve here in the big city.  Mum and I slept in.  She took herself outside with me for a little while.   A little butterfly kept coming to sit next to us, but I kept chasing it away.  It has been cloudy and windy today as we are due for some more rain.

So mum walked herself to the supermarket which wasn't as busy as she expected.  She got herself some treats.  So dinner tonight was handmade Thai pork meatballs and a couscous salad.  Best if all for mum - her favorite fresh raspberries - a pricey $10 for a small punnet. 

So happy New Year's to my friends.  Thanks for sharing 2017 with us.

Quick - find a sunbeam, lie down and fall asleep.

Have a happy Caturday!!

Yippee it's Friday and mums work is finished.  It wasn't too busy at work but mum was tired.  Some sleeping was needed when she got home.  I curled up beside her.  Normally if she is at home trying to sleep in the day I jump all over her or keep chatting to her but mum says I was such a good girl.

So us girls are chilling out tonight and mum is thinking about trying to sleep.
