Greetings Humans! I am lying here with my Mommy and on the radio is playing a rather upbeat song (LM Radio, you should try it out. They play all the oldies and goodies). But not even the song gets me to lift my pretty head. Goodness gracious great balls of fire – the past two weeks have been long. Mommy says we should rather count them in cat days. Thus, 98 days have passed since we last graced you with our presence.
I am very glad to be have Mommy and Daddy back home safely, but I didn’t get all my requested prezzies, so I brought them a lizard or two and rolled the toilet paper down two nights in a row. Not that it helped very much, she still went to school last week Monday. And then she came back half way through the day. She looked furious and thought it best to just purr and look cute. She complained about something called Load shedding. I didn’t really see the problem. She ended up on the couch reading, because she couldn’t work on the computer. Then on Tuesday, the exact same thing happened! She stormed in here again midway through the day, but then she was in tears. I still don’t really see the problem, but I am old enough to know when my mommy is really upset.
I think it’s stage 2, those Eskom humans do whatever they want in any case. But believe it or not, that’s still not the best part of the week! On Tuesday night, right before dinner time (for them, I was luckily fed already. Otherwise it would have been really too crazy), Mommy’s Head Master phones and tells her that there will be NO SCHOOL until Monday due to Covid 19. You should have seen her face.
No electricity, no wine, no school. It doesn’t make for a pretty sight. Devastation and despondency are accurate descriptions.
Anyone else saw this meme? I for one love Mommy’s apocalyptic outfit, but I think I should rather just keep that to myself.
At least she did get time for some blogging over the last 98 days, so all’s not completely lost! And it did cheer her up. Thank goodness for blogging.
Scratching the blog pole
We did 2 Top Ten Tuesdays’, 2 Wednesday Wisdom’s, 2 Weekend Book Friends and 1 book review. Click on the image if you want to read the posts!
The book reviews are in Afrikaans. I will be so impressed if you understand it! But seriously, if by any chance any one reading this does speak or read Afrikaans, give us a shout out! Would love to meet up with Afrikaans bloggers.
On the couch
Let’s don’t fuss about this too much. Reading is not really as high on Mommy’s priority list as it should be. I’ll defend her reasons nail and claw. She did manage to read a bit yesterday and as soon as she publish this post, she will be doing exactly that again. After she fed me and everyone else. And finish her planning for tomorrow.
Not much. Mommy and Daddy did watch a very old movie that didn’t make sense to me at all. Back to the Future. How can 2015 be the future? Strange what amuses my humans every now and then.
Did anybody see this? This made my Mommy laugh hysterically:
I don’t think I will do a ‘Let it Go’ section today. The past 98 days just need to be let go and we are looking forward to a new week!
How was your past 49 days? Hope you will have a wonderful week ahead and that you do not need to suffer through load shedding, alcohol bans or any infected schools. Please stay safe!
Lots of love,
