Belated Mother's Day

Here in Australia we celebrated Mother's Day 2 days ago -  May 13th. I have never been enthused for this day...........probably a legacy left to me by my late Mother who always said "Mother's Day should be everyday. Please don't buy me anything...just a bunch of flowers"
But this year was different. Life is passing us by and with baby Beau around it all seems different - sorry Mum! Larry always makes sure I have chrysanthemums so I set to and decided the family would get together for a picnic. Now I am not one to cook but I went all out and had fun finding recipes - the links are below each one and they were all easy!

BUT the weather was cold and drizzling - so we had to have it inside but with paper plates!

 Emily's very first Mother's day
 A Mother's day kiss from Auntie Sophie
 Such a special Mother's day
 Flowers from Sophie
Mother and baby Ant - a gift from Emily and Brett confirming my continued obsession with the TV series Minuscule (I have the whole series of over 60 episodes...have a peek.....(I love it!!)

And to top it all off we had sweet indulgences baked by Brett and Sophie.....

 A Mother's day to remember..........

Back to Morris and Quilting next time (lots of show and tell)
Take care wherever you are X


  1. We too, did a picnic...but not with such fancy plates... paper or no... those plates are great!
