Where was mum?

She was late home again on Friday although not quite as late. I asked if she came another way and she looked a bit embarrassed. Turns out she had tried to take some back roads and much to her delight found herself speeding along a road alongside the one she wanted to avoid. She thought she had been really clever - until she saw a roadsign and found out she was speeding along in exactly the wrong direction, every moment taking her away from home.

When they were handing out senses of direction I think she got lost on her way and never got one!

It finally felt like Spring here on Saturday. You can tell how warm it was - Josie came outside with me. We wandered about for a while and it felt marvellous.

"I expect we'll be in and out all weekend" I told mum.

"Ah" she said. "That's not going to be possible".

For big bag came out and she was off and we were confined to our quarters. It felt cruel when Josie had finally found weather wram enough for her to be out in.

Our kindly neighbours popped in to feed us and mum came home on Sunday. Josie was not cool. She gets so excited when mum comes back from anywhere.

OK - I admit it. I was pretty pleased too and there was another bowl of biscuits incident. In my dashing about I skidded on the mat they share with our water bowl and everything went flying. This is why we need mum - to clear things up.

Mum was telling us that shed had been to look after her nephews while their parents were away. "I expect you missed us," I said. Mum agreed that it had felt odd to read a newspaper without a paw wiggling under it or watch a TV programme without a plaintive mewing demanding playtime. I imagine it was. Poor mum. I gave her plenty of snuggles to remind her how lovely I am.

My mum got up at 4am this morning and put on work uniform. Went to work came home got into bed with me then put her work uniform back on and went out again. Came home again with KFC and a crispy strip for me. Our humans do behave really oddly sometimes with their where abouts.

Oh Monster. 10 days is a long time. Can you sneak into her bag and go with her?

Toby, MOL on the getting lost thing. Our Mom gets lost in a telephone booth. She didn't get any sense of direction either. It's good that here in the USA most streets are built from north to south and east to west. And some are even numbered. 1st Street, 2nd Avenue, 3rd Street, 4th Street and so on. I think they numbered them just for Mom.

Wow Monster your mom is going to be gone for 10 get ups?! that is a long time I don't think mom ever left us that long. You maybe should just jump in her bag like Tiny does and see if she will take you with her.

Toby your mom and mine both have that sense of direction that gets them lost. Mom drove all the way back to downtown a few weeks ago hoping to avoid traffic and she lives way on the east side of downtown. ooooh she was so frustrated when she finally got home.
