What a week......

Hello everyone. I told you at the weekend that mum was on late shift but what a week it turned out to be. Saturday and Sunday turned into Monday and Tuesday as well. When on this shift mum is on call for the night shift too and was out every night but Sunday night was out six times and only spent one hour in bed. Ouch.. Then as there was no one to cover this morning did a few hours there and was out again. All in all its been quite a week. Rest of today and tomorrow off then another late shift on Friday. At least she has booked the weekend off for a 40's event.

On another note this morning when mum came in I said to her that it was a nice morning and could we go in the yard before it started raining again. We did so and look I actually felt up to getting on the gate. A little wobbly but up there and checking around..

                                                Then I had to sharpen my claws on the seat...
                                            I know I know don't do that....
                                               There was even a watery sun puddle and I posed a little too..
                                                 But not for long...
                                 Right mum is going to visit my friends for me .. We especially remember our dear friend Ann ( Zoolatry ) as she will be remembering her dear Vic. xxxx
                                      Love and hugs to all.. GJ xxx

Your poor mum must be worn out GJ. I am glad she is able to relax at the weekend and go to a 40s event,
I am glad you were able to go out in the garden and enjoy a bit of sunshine.

It's good to read that you wanted to get out and about, Ginger Jasper. Your poor mum will be the one feeling badly with so little sleep! Continue to enjoy the sun.

Hopin yer Mom gets some rest! We think caretakers need to be alert when helpin others. When TBT stays up 36 hours, he needs to keep just one eye open to focus an thats probly not the best idea. An after that, a couple hours of sleep just leaves him loopier.

Kari said...

Grueling schedule for your mum . Just hideous hours!
But weren't you a little treat to come home to. You were so sweet to take your mum into the garden. We know your sweet companionship and the lovely garden did wonders to lift her spirits and to help her relax. And aren't you looking fit! In the last two photos you are looking absolutely regal! Our little King of Hearts. Big kisses and all of our love to you always.

We're glad your mom had time for you even though she was so busy!

So wonderful to see you out enjoying the sunshines, GJ!

Tell your Mum not to work too hard.

XOXO

Mum's schedule sounds grueling! Please ask her to take care so she doesn't get worn out or sick. It is nice to see you feeling up to a bit of time in the yard. We love seeing photos of you.

Poppy Q said...

Oh my gosh we do feel for your mum, as mum does a lot of call too. Although this week she was only on call once and got out of bed twice, finally getting home at 04.50am. She got a 9hr break, so that meant she only had to work from 1.30-4pm the next afternoon.

Hope you get some time to put your feet up together.
