Last weekend was Mother’s Day and it was a really relaxing day. In fact the whole weekend was relaxing. Mother’s Day started with breakfast in bed, Croissant’s and fruit juice. E decided to have the same breakfast and had it in bed with me which was lovely. It was so nice having breakfast in bed.
Once I climbed out of bed I was given some lovely presents. Emily had made a fab card at school and one at Rainbows. There was even a little box with a chocolate in that E had made at Rainbows. I love home-made things as always so personal.
I was also given some beautiful flowers, a Terry’s chocolate orange, which didn’t last long! And some stationary. Anyone that knows me will know that I have a thing about stationary, even more so since I started writing. I was spoilt.
The rest of the day was sent playing and getting crafty. I was kindly sent a fab Hama Beads set for Mother’s Day so we decided to get it out and have some fun. I have never used Hama beads before therefore I was looking forward to having a go.
How addictive are Hama beads. We all enjoyed making different things. Even J got in on the action and attempted to make something. I loved attempting to make the love heart out of the set and I was surprised that I actually made it.
I really did have a lot of fun and it was so nice to do something with the children. They both enjoyed themselves too and I think we will be making more creations next weekend.
M went out and managed to find some meat for a roast dinner. Since the snow the local supermarket have hardly had any fresh items, even a week or so later.
Whilst M prepared the roast, I really was having a relaxing Mother’s day. I had the fun of playing with the children, which was fun apart for the occasional squabbles.
I spent ages making a pretty awesome track, even if I say so myself. By the time I finally finished it J was ready to pull it to pieces and play something else. Lesson learned, just make a small one!
Later on we had a delivery turn up. Part of J’s Christmas present. He had a duplicate present at Christmas so we had a refund for the item and have only just decided what to get him.
A car rug with plenty of road. We just know he would love it and sure enough he does. Both the children played with it none stop. Everyday since I have been on the floor having high-speed car chases. It was great to see them both using their imagination.
The day was finished off with a lovely Roast Pork dinner, which was so tasty. It was time for some chill time before the bedtime routine commenced. I had a lovely day, despite the children having their moment’s. As soon as they were in bed I demolished the Terry’s Chocolate Orange. It was so nice to spend some quality time with the children and not have to worry about cooking and cleaning. I have to be say my favourite part of the day was playing with the Hama beads and breakfast in bed.
I hope you all had a great mother’s day.
