Mothers Day Magic
My mothers day was pretty magical this year. My kids have reached what appears to be the best ages for producing copious amounts of home made cards and goodies. They started with these flowers from our local flower market, never before have I seen these two-tone gerberas that Roboboy chose for me.
They followed up with a positive bounty of home made goodness. There were cards,
(it seems I have been upgraded from "best little mama in the world")
breakfast in bed ( the handmade variety), followed up by a real buttery croissant and cup of tea,
artwork from school,
and even some time playing with watercolours together on the day.
My mum and I even popped out to a gorgeous art exhibition at the Botanical gardens, this is the card mum bought me from the artist Nadine Sawyer,
and a lovely much wanted gift from Legoman and the kids, handmade by Betty Jo at Lino Forest. I couldn't choose between the sewing machine and the budgie brooch, how lucky that she was having a 2 for 1 Mothers Day sale. She makes these intricate brooches from salvaged linoleum.
All in all, probably the most colourful, love filled Mother's Day I have ever had. (This would be Liongirl's painting from kindy of our new house and Roboboy and I worked on that gerbera painting together).
