I'm A Happy Mummy.

 Happy Mothers Day !

"The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new."  ~Rajneesh 

What can I say other than it's been wonderful to spend time with my family and celebrate Mothering Sunday  in style.  Handmade cards and gifts, a delightful visit from my sister and a delicious celebratory Italian meal.... it's been a great weekend, I have not laughed so much in ages.  

I thought I'd share a few photo's from this weekend....

Firstly, here is the first of 2 Mothers Day cards I received (one made at school and the other at Nathans nanna's house)... both made made smile and belly laugh actually. You will see why. My heart warmed and Nathan blushed... so precious!
The front of the card... all cute and neat.  
 The inside of the card and just look at the detail -- Nathan even drew our pet bearded dragon and mentioned my cat Harry. Awwwwww...
 *giggles* Just look at the back!!! Hilarious to say the least... hope it's not meant to be me in the morning. Eeeek.
  The second Mothers Day card.
 He's liking his funny faces isn't he? Just so sweet. The effort he put into the cards was just great!
We don't get together that often as a family, but it's always a lot of fun when we do. My sister and I wanted to take our mum out for dinner, so we booked a table at ASK Italian. Always wonderful service and great food (big fat chocolate desserts) -- so we couldn't go wrong. ;-D
The photobomb shot ! 
 The waiter was a good sport and offered to stop 'getting in on the act' and take a group shot for me. I'm usually behind the camera, not in front. How do I smile for the camera again? *giggles*  
 My sister and I enjoying the white wine.
 My mummy! Maybe she won't thank me for this shot with the choccie pudding. Heeheeee...
 So this mothering Sunday I went with a pink and green  theme -  I treated my mum to Pink Roses....

 A glass cookie jar full of home made Rocky Road Chocolate Cake.
 Handmade vintage coasters... I crafted them myself. (I'll show you how in a future blog if you like)
I love my mum so much; despite some difficult times in her life, the strength and resolve she has shown is truly inspiring... I'm not sure what I would do without her. My mum is also a wonderful, playful, caring nanna - Nathan adores her.

  1. It looks like it was a wonderful mother's day--cards, gifts, and eating out. Our mother's day in America is not until May.

    1. Aghhhhhh yes, I know they are not on the same day ... I wonder why? Thx for taking the time to comment Laura. X

  2. Looks like a great day, but you just gave me a panic as mentioned above, ours isn't until May, but I thought I may have missed it! Phew! :)

  3. Here, here! Mum rocks... like your rocky road ;o) Which, by the way, didn't last very long in MY car! xxx

  4. Ah Sweetie you look like you had a great Mothering Sunday - loving the cards, the homemade ones really are so very precious aren't they! Hope you're having a great week and not working too hard!

  5. Happy Mother's Day, looks like you all had a wonderful day! Our's is in May in Australia. I love your gifts for your mother, so pretty and how clever are you to make those coasters. Aren't kids cards awesome, much better than any store bought one!
