The Joy of Mother's Day

Time spent together, sharing a delicious meal and great conversation . . . and don't forget those lovely pressies.

My beautiful children spoiled me. From Elizabeth a great 'small' purple backpack and a new key holder - ours is full, with extra sets of keys now that we have more drivers in the house.
 Sarah spoilt me with this stunning red scarf - I have been admiring them in the store for ages, and from Matthew well he really went overboard. He bought me these stunning earrings. I think that I am loved.
 Mum invited us down to the cottage for a yummy roast lunch.  She is such a great cook and her specialty has always been great roast dinners. Today's fare was lamb, potatoes (cooked to perfection), veges and an added treat Yorkshire puddings. Yum!  There goes the waistline.
 Matching colour schemes, despite neither of us knowing what the other was wearing, just shows how close we are.  Andre Rieu's new album, some scrap-booking pages and of course what is Mother's Day without chocolates.
 My plate of food, looking so good.  I filled up on the yummy bits, with a few added veges for health.
I have been a daughter for nearly 50 years and a mother for 23 - what bliss!
