|It is good to get some time to yourself...no hoomins or Tolkien to bother you!|
So here we are and there are only a few days left before we can finally say goodbye and good riddance to this strange and perhaps a rather bad year....well mostly for the hoomins I guess as us, cats, well....we can’t really say that this year it has been really that bad...as some might even say quite the opposite. What a good year it really has been!
Well, it was at least different from all the previous years as hoomins and us cats of course had to adapt to new routines and most importantly for the hoomins to learn to spend a lot of their time indoors with us. Something which was rather sudden and unexpected and which they never thought that it would last the entire year…and beyond!
There were a lot of things that the poor hoomins had to give up this year such as not being able to go outside anymore for work or for all the other normal hoomin activities such as going to places where other hoomins usually go and meet and behave like hoomins I guess or even go on holidays…which were things that they had to totally give up and instead try to find ways to entertain themselves while they were staying at home.
But and to be clear really staying at home is not such a bad thing after all and it is something that us cats have long time ago figured out so now it was time for the hoomins to do so too. There are always things that you can still do while at home and which things hoomins would normally do at their workplace such as actually work from home without having to go through all the fuss of getting ready and traveling...something which it used to really annoy my hoomins especially what they’ve used to often call traffic and when the weather was bad. Now things are so much simpler as they only have to get up out of bed and they are ready to start working without having to waste any time on getting ready or traveling. And of course let’s not forget that they are also getting a lot of extra help from us so they can finish their work a lot quicker than they’d have normally done if they were at the office (and of course it’s not just the hoomins’ work that we also often are giving them a helping paw now that they are at home as we try to be helpful wherever we can. You are welcome hoomins).
Yeap hoomins are so much better now that they can work from home. They can now have a stress free and easy life a lot like our own…(well meowself anymeows...Tolkien not included...by the way you can still read about our life at home and of course all about the good times we’ve used to have at home in the good old days before March when hoomins behaved like hoomins and they’ve used to go outside often...in the hoomins comic Life with Ozzy.. and Tolkien available on Amazon)!
As for missing out on all the other activities that they’ve used to do outside I don’t really think that this is really the case as they are not actually missing much. Now they are doing a lot more of exercising, a lot more of cooking and even watch a lot more of entertainment at home whenever they want without again having to step outside especially now that is rather cold and miserable out there.
|That Tolkien has no idea how to hide or how big he really is...|
And of course and very importantly let’s not forget that now they are spending a lot more time with us and we spend a lot of our time with them so to keep them entertained.
My hoomins are a lot happier now that they don’t have to go to work anymore and they don’t seem to mind or even want to go outside as often as they’ve used to. They are quite happy staying at home and doing the things they like and which they never seem to have had the time to do before.
So yes it might have been a rather bad year for some hoomins out there as some might have suffered greatly and even got seriously ill or even worse but for those hoomins that they had to stay indoors and change their way of living I think that this year hasn’t really being that bad. I think that this year gave the opportunity to many hoomins indoors out there to think about their lives and what really matters and it is important and worth living for. Hoomins and cats should be grateful for all the good things in our lives that we are currently have and enjoy and to stop complaining about things that they don’t really matter in this life, to stop being greedy for things that they are expensive and rather unimportant and being blind to all the good things that are around us.
So hoomins be grateful for your furry companions that they are currently share your life and cats out there be grateful for your hoomins that they are looking after you and share their life with you (By the way that doesn’t apply to the squirrels outside that they keep pestering us all year around…).
Let’s all be thankful for all the good things in our lives and wish for a good and happy new year (and for that squirrel outside to stop bothering us)...to 2021!
Purrs and Meows till next time!
