So it is Sunday and another moment for a Random Moment of Delight, this week #13 woohoo!
However, I think today was not so random as it was Mother’s Day 🙂
I must confess I shed a few tears this morning, just thinking about my own mother and thought uh oh this morning is having a bit of a rocky start. For me it always takes me a while to ‘settle’ back from those moments and until then I am sometimes (yup putting hands up here), sometimes, not the greatest or nicest of people to be around.
But, hey I got there and at 6.55am, yes I remember the moment exactly. It was when my youngest barged in to my bedroom without knocking, at that time of the morning gives anyone a shock.
However his cheery little voice brightened me up no end as he said “Happy Mother’s Day Mummy” hand hiding something behind his back. It didn’t take long before he presented me with his handmade card which was of an Egyptian Mummy. This consisted of string very lovingly or painstakingly woven around a figurine shape and then a poem inside, woohoo, lovely and I have put the poem beneath the picture of the card for any of you hard of sight like me!
I will note the ‘computer’ mention did have me giggling.
My mum cooks like the best cook ever
On the computer, amazing, that’s my mum
Ha, ha she’s as funny as a clown
Every day she is kind
that’s my mum
I was then presented with another card, from my eldest, shop bought but with the loveliest of words on, all of which I gleefully ticked as being right and then a ‘family card’. My eldest presented me with a croissant half chocolate and jam and the day was seemingly making a bright recovery chased up with a lovely bunch of flowers.
My eldest then disappeared for a while and whipped up a hand made card, I think the competitive side came out spotting that his younger brother had rivaled him on the ‘crafty’ stakes and now I have four Mother’s Day cards. Anyone would think I had given birth to a tribe!
We threw in a quick hair cut from mummy to youngest son, his cool looking Lenny Kravitz dreadlocks now gone and smart looking boy much to please his Grandma Glo who has since seen him on facebook and given a thumbs up!
The day then proceeded as two wicked little friends joined me in the garden, care of Mother’s Day Gifts!
They will no doubt keep me occupied in chatter and evil little schemes whilst I garden when and if the sunshine comes out. I have been hankering after these creatures for a while.
Lunch time then approached!
I was taken to one of the local mummy’s at school’s restaurant, named after her son. We hadn’t tried it before as she had moved premises and seemingly the general ambience of the place, ie it was pretty smart + 2 lively children made me somewhat nervous but oh for the blessings of tablets and no not medicated ones before I get accused of drugging my children just to go out for lunch.
So we all ate, everyone behaved reasonably well. I had chicken melanese and a glass of rose as shown.
Then we trundled full bellied down to some tiered gardens nearby, really stunning I summarily however flopped on the grass whilst the kids whizzed about on a scooter. I did however manage to take a photo of a simply stunning magnolia tree.
So a wonderful Mother’s Day had by me, how was yours?
Plus I wanted to say to everyone, all my readers…..
Happy Mother’s Day!
Remember we all have a mother if not our birth mother, we have Mother Nature 🙂
