Mothering Sunday

Just wanted to say thank you for previous comments. Much appreciated and so encouraging.

It is Mothering Sunday today in the UK. Hope mums everywhere have had a lovely day. My son from Yorkshire and family traveled down to see us. ( We should have been up there and I should have been on a Sugar Craft course on Saturday- it was not to be - God had other plans)
Last night we went out early for tea with my sons and their families and Sarah's Mum came too. I had to go in a wheel chair. The children thought it was fun. Harry thinks I should get a motorised scooter and he can race me. I pray that does not happen though. Sadly Matthew had to take Sam back to our house as he felt unwell. We were at Pizza Express so he was able to take his tea home and eat it. Sam went to sleep when he got back at 6 p.m. and so was awake at 2.30 this morning feeling better and chirpy. We had a lovely dinner.
This morning there were cards and presents and breakfast in bed for my D.I.L. Carolynn and me- served by the boys- young and old :-)
After breakfast my sons and families all went to Church. I cannot get ready very quickly at the moment so stayed at home. They arrived back with scrumptious homemade cake to have with coffee. Then Sarah, Jonathan and the girls went off to see Sarah's Mum. Matthew, Carolynn, the boys and Grandma and Grandpa had some lunch and then they went back to Yorkshire :-(
Despite the pain and discomfort it was a lovely weekend with my family - the sort I like best.

My lovely presents
Beautiful crds and presents. The handwash and handcream that is out of the packet is Molton and Brown and smells divine. There is also some Cath Kidson as well. Love it. 

Below a close up of the book mark - love the words. 

Below is a present to myself . Postie brought it on Saturday. I will reveal all in next post. :-) 

Knee permitting I will hopefully be back soon. x 


  1. Happy Mum's Day to you as well and glad I stopped by!
    A big hello from the Pacific NW coast,

  2. Sounds like you were well and truly spoilt by the family Anne. Beautiful flowers and gifts. I love Molten Brown too, Heavenly Gingerlily is my favourite. Hope you hear from the hospital soon. Hugs Rita xxx

  3. It looks like you're making the best of things and enjoying your family. They sure did spoil you, you must be a super duper mom! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. Sounds like you had a lovely day Anne, and it was well deserved!
    I can't wait to see what's in the parcel!!


  5. Hi Anne, sounds like you had a lovely Mother's Day... I'm a little worried about what happened that you are on a wheel chair. I missed a couple of your posts... I have been so tired I follow asleep before I can read my favorite blogs... Hope you are doing well or feeling better now.


I love receiving comments and promise I will read them all.


Hello. I knew last week ( again) I'd have very little time to visit so didn't pop on. We went to our eldest Son's in Yorkshire o...
