Flashback Friday: Better Late Than Never

I had to remind Mum to post today. "Hey, Mum," I said as she was having a cuppa and reading about Larry the Downing Street Cat on the laptop. "You do realise that you've forgotten to do my Flashback Friday Instagram post today, don't you?"

Honestly, she's been so far away in her head lately. I don't know what's wrong with her! Old age maybe? She's not young anymore. She's at that age when, well, ladies will know what I mean. But it's not just that. It's also the fact that we're still trying to sell our house to move out of London. It's so hard, and Mum is dealing with so much stuff. She's not good at dealing with lots of stuff. She gets overwhelmed. And she stresses big time. I've noticed she is not as stressed as she used to be though, so I suppose she's getting more used to doing things she hates doing because she's an adult. I really believe my mum never grew up or doesn't want to!

Anyway, I know how to keep her in check. Everyone needs a wise cat at their side, don't they? 

Here are my photos. Don't forget the Caturday Art Blog Hop tomorrow!

  1. I think this is my most favorite grouping of pics of you, Athena! Your eye and fur colors really shine. Can only wish that the house-selling starts smoothing out for your human, Athena!

  2. I love all of these! You are so gorgeous, Miss Athena. If your Mum EVER needs to talk - please let me know. I completely understand the struggles with dealing with a lot of stuff at once ... it's hard not to be overwhelmed ... or just quit it all because one's depressed. We love you and your Mum ... and if there's anything we can help with, please let us know!

  3. I'm glad to see your Instagram photos today, Athena! Honestly, my human has been in a state of stress for several months... since we live in the U.S., you can probably figure out why.

    1. Totally understand. And now we have Theresa May and her coalition :(

  4. Beautiful photos. Your Mum is not old.
