Happy Mother's Day (for yesterday)

Happy belated Mother's Day!

I had a relaxing day yesterday. I received a beautiful poem and card from my beautiful boy, Master Owlet. There is just something so special about receiving a card which he obviously had taken so much care to write neatly and draw a picture of me. I will treasure it forever. He also bought me some lovely things from the mother's day stall at school - a thong magnet for the fridge (the shoe kind!), a bar of soap, some gorgeous earrings and a little LED torch which says 'supermum' on the side. Classic!

From both of the kids, I was given the forest friends pj set from Peter Alexander - with owls on them of course (thanks Mr Pip!). 

Today I was a little late to work as I had a special morning tea at Miss Owlet's kindergarten. All the mums were treated to hand massages, nail painting and cucumbers on our eyes ('How long do we leave it on for?' 3 minutes mum ... 3 seconds later they were whipped off!).


Miss Owlet made me a beautiful bracelet with straws and beads which I'm wearing to work today.

Concentrating so hard!
We spent some time playing, building block houses for little people and did some paintings together. It was a wonderful opportunity to share her favourite things to do at 'school' and I'm so glad that I took the time to go and enjoy it with her.  

What is your favourite thing about mother's day - is it the special cuddles, the breakfast in bed, the handmade creations, the presents or just the celebration of being a mum?
