Sunday was Mother’s Day, so being the good daughter I am, I headed off home to celebrate my mum being the best mum in the world.
We thought we’d keep it nice and easy this year and instead of treking off out to a restaurant, we decided to stay at home, but us kiddiewinks would sort out lunch and fun activities.
So my sister and I headed over to the supermaket on our way home and bought a large amount of very naughty, high carb, but highly tasty food. Pizzas, quiche, cornish pasties, chicken dippers, crisps, dips and more.
We sat in the conservatory as it was such nice weather. Whilst we waited for my brother, we decided to pop open a bottle of Bucks Fizz, but it was a right tough old cork, so we had to wait for my big strong brother to come and open it for us.
My brother eventually arrived and we got stuck into the joy of gift giving! My Mum was very lucky and got some Edinburgh Elderflower gin (she loves Elderflower, loves gin and is from Edinburgh – perfect!). A personalised Home Is Where The Heart Is slate wall hanger, some chocolate ginger biscuits, a nice big potted floral arrangement, and an Earl Grey tea and infuser set.
If you are struggling for ideas for Mother’s Day, then bookmark these Pinterest boards for next year! They’re jam-packed full of great ideas for all kinds of mothers out there (both bought and handmade ideas):
We then got stuck into lunch, followed by a game of Trivial Pursuit. Working on teams based on sofas (my sister and Mum, me and Dad, then my brother on his own). We let my Mum win of course (although she’s a bit of a genius so won completely on her own accord, with my sister’s much valued help too! My brother almost pipped them to the post though. And my Dad and me….? Well let’s just say it’s not about the winning, but the taking part!
Now I’m not a mother myself yet, but when I am, this is the kind of Mother’s Day I’d like to have (the London Mum is a very lucky lady!).
