Happy Mothers Day to all you mummies out there. This year I made an extra effort to make this day special for my mum. She was up out early this morning so no chance of breakfast in bed, instead my dad, youngest sister and I prepared a lovely lunch for when she got home. The table was laden with pink and purple flowers in jars and vases, a bottle of bubbly, an enormous Toblerone (mum's favourite), a golden platter of homemade blueberry muffins I'd made the night before, a plate of delicious macaroons from M&S (I saw them on Megan's blog and knew I had to hunt them down!) and a handmade card made by my youngest sister, with me being the "artistic director".
Mum arrived home shivering from the cold and the almost-snow. She was really surprised by the spread we'd set up, and after a lovely lunch of soup and rolls, we dinned on the sugary treats and champagne. My grandparents also came to visit, so we had a sleepy Sunday sitting by the fire and chatting. We had a lovely and relaxing day and I'm sure a few of us may have nodded off, why is it so tiring doing nothing?
