To all the mothers out there, I hope you had a lovely day yesterday.
I slept in…bliss. With my daughter and puppy in tow (husband was off surfing), I walked to our local café along country lanes in the autumn sunshine. My husband met up with us for breakfast. After brekkie, I treated myself to a mother’s day special – a little chocolate cupcake. No calories on Mother’s Day!

The café has a lovely vegetable and herb garden, which inspired us. So my daughter and I walked home and planted a herb garden. I then her gave encouragement while she made a papier mâché
mushroom for her school art project. Later we snuggled up on the couch, with the fire burning and watched rom coms while my husband went to band practice.
In the evening my daughter cooked us an amazing dinner (flavoured with the newly planted herbs) and we all watched Jane the Virgin in our PJs on Netflix while the rain pattered on our tin roof. A low-key day. A lovely day. A perfect day.
How about you? Did you have a great day yesterday?
Jen, that sounds like a wonderful day! So glad it was perfect for you. My mother and I went out for breakfast and then a touch of shopping (as you do)...and then I spent the afternoon watching the Pride and Prejudice movie. Happy sighs.ReplyDelete
Such happy sighs, Michelle. Love, love Pride and Prejudice - both the movie and the BBC production.Delete
Me too! I mean no movie can live up to 6 hours of BBC goodness, but when one needs a quick hit of Austen then the movies can definitely provide it. :-)Delete
Jen, what a lovely day! It does sound blissful. I love cosy home days with family. We spent the day visiting my mother and my mother in law but it started with home made corn fritters cooked perfectly just for me! I didn't have to cook all day.ReplyDelete
Annie, your comment did show up here in the end! You day sounds simply lovely.Delete
Sounds like a fabulous day Jennifer, I spent the day with 2 of my daughters and 2 of the grandkids enjoying a BBQ it was lots of funReplyDelete
Sounds perfect, Helen.Delete
