It was Mother's Day here in the UK today.
The girls treated me and Mark to breakfast this morning at a local restaurant, it made a lovely change to our usual Sunday morning.
They all came back to ours afterwards for a cuppa and to give me cards
Yes there are 5 cards, no, I don't have 5 children only 3, lol, but I always get a card and a little something from Oliver, and this year Bonnie too, just to say thank you Nanny.
Oliver gave me the little plant and a lovely new mug, and Bonnie gave me the duck,
(whose name is Wendy), aren't they cute!
I opened my cards and the two presents and went into the kitchen to put the kettle on,
and look what I saw in the garden
Oh - my - goodness!! the girls had bought me a bird table, eeek!!
I have wanted one of these for ages, and now I have one, lol
Once me and Mark had set off for the restaurant for breakfast this morning they whizzed round to our house and left it in the garden before coming to join us so that it would be a surprise when we got back :-)
I tell you, I was close to tears when I saw it, only last evening I had said to Mark that I wanted a covered bird table not knowing that my lovely girls had already bought me one :-) :-)
I am so very lucky.
Tomorrow I'm going on a little holiday to Great Yarmouth with Joanne and Bonnie.
Joanne is having her sitting room and dining room decorated and new flooring laid next week and didn't want to be at home with Bonnie in all the mess so we booked this little holiday.
Neither of us have ever been to Great Yarmouth so we are looking forward to seeing a new part of the country, we can't expect the weather to be brilliant but as long as the rain holds off we won't mind, it will be a lovely change of scenery.
Next Saturday we are going to the Sewing for Pleasure show at the NEC in Birmingham and then on the Sunday we are throwing a little Sprinkle Shower for Jenny, (apparently when it's your second baby you don't throw a Baby Shower you have a Sprinkle), because you don't need to be showered with baby gifts as you already have most of what you need.
I didn't know this, did you? I'd never heard of having a Baby Shower until a few years ago, no such things in my day, lol.
I hope you have had a fantastic Mother's day and have been as thoroughly spoilt as I have :-)
Have a great week, see you soon
