Happy Mother's Day

The tone was set for the day while out with friends last night, Geoff is informed it is actually Mother's day tomorrow. Hmmm may be a bit short present wise but I was spoilt with lots of affection and many 'you're the best Mum in the world' from the kids ( maybe a bit grovelly and they may demand money very soon, but I will take it while I can..)

Any way Henry made me a nice card, Matt whipped out a haiku (see below) and Meaghan is in the process of cooking tea and dessert (hopefully with a bit of help from Geoff..). so not all bad, in fact quite good especially if Matt washes up.

And we did go for a bike ride as it was a lovely day - although that ended in a slight disaster when Henry crashed into to another kid who was on the wrong side of the track.



To finish off a LO I did for Design Dollies using two of their challenges, the colour challenge being pink, orange and cream (I found this quite tricky..) as well as including something for teacher appreciation week. This is for Meaghan's year 5 and 6 teacher who was perfect for improving Meaghan's confidence and preparing her for high school. fabulous teacher and I will be sorry when she leaves at the end of the year.

Just a reminder to go check out Butterfly Crafts challenge for May as the prize (sponsored by Nikki Sivils,) is enormous, lots of yummy stuff.

Off to ring my mother now, she's had a long week as Dad has been fighting an arm infection and ended up having the infection chopped out. Hopefully will be a better week this week. xx

Mothers Day is such a mixed bag isn't it, but glad you did OK. Ruby decided at 5.00 on Saturday night they had to go shopping for mothers Day - of course it had nothing to do with the fact I had just said there was no ice cream in the house and we weren't going to be making a special trip to the shops for it!! hehe.
PS loving your new profile phote. Great glasses!
