Happy Mother's Day



I've had the most wonderful day, being spoiled by my boys.



Harry purchased this beautiful book for me from the school 'Mother's Day' shop. It is filled with fantastic art by various famous artists, I plan to use it as an altered book and fill it with sketches of my 'babies' ...all grown up but MY babies all the same!




I also received this gorgeous basket of flowers. Jake presented me with them last night because he had to play rugby first thing this morning. Among the array of beauty is a green lily, I have never seen before, with the most wonderful texture.
The whole basket is a sheer artistic delight from the sensual swirls of the roses to the delicate, sweet scent of the Freesias and the bonus is that I will be able to make use of it long after the flowers have faded.

Great presents! I had forgotten that Mother's Day isn't the same date in the UK as in the US. We still have to wait until May.

Another cherished keepsake! Oh, how lovely to be pampered and appreciated! How even sweeter to be so loved! :)

I also forgot the UK celebrates Mothers Day a different time from the US. I'm glad your family took time to spoil you.

Lucky you! Though I'm sure it isn't really luck at all, rather a reflection of what a great mother you are. Roll on Father's Day!!
