Once again I have been spoilt by the present gods, and I was given the most lovely mother's day. The beautiful teacup above was given to me early yesterday morning by Miss L, apparently carefully chosen by herself too. I say early, because I had signed myself up for doing the 4km Mother's Day Classic (what was I thinking), and had to brave the very fresh morning to
wheezerun around the botanic gardens. Returning home to a shower and time alone to peruse the Sunday paper - something that doesn't happen very often these days. After a short nap, I was woken to the scrumptious aromas of lunch!
Lamb shanks - my favourite c/o Jamie Oliver, and wonderfully prepared by R, accompanied by a bottle of smooth red. Bliss.
I definitely felt that I am a very lucky mother/wife after this delightful day, but talk about raising the bar. I am going to have to do some thing magical for father's day this year!!
As for the present gods, well I will just briefly mention this bag, this perfume and these yarns, that R bought back from his trip. There was also some surprise Victoria's Secret gifts, but I'm a bit shy, so no pic's!!
In amongst all this present receiving I have managed some crafting. Penelope now has a proper bed, mattress, quilt and matching pillow. I think she looks very comfortable. Well worth all that hand stitching.
P.s. This month's whiplash is mini quilt's too, so onto the next endeavour....
