With all my kids now in high school, this year was the first year in fifteen years where I didn't receive a Mother's Day Stall present :(
Oh how I missed the mug with chocolates all done up in cellophane, the cheap soap wrapped in a hankie and the rose scented candles! Capri reminded me of the time she gave me the vegetable printed tea towel - she was oh so proud and her brothers teased her something shocking for giving me a tea towel!
I miss those little gems! And that vegetable printed teatowel is still in use in the Archer kitchen!
My Mother's Day started the night before when my dad surprised me, my mum and sister with a bunch of flowers each! I don't know that dad has EVER given me flowers! So that was novel.
And my morning started with a cuppa in bed, made by Ken deliberately using a Mothers Day Stall mug from several years ago.
and lots of lovely presents..
Including slippers, Music From the Circle Girls CD, Olivia Newton John's lovely cook book LivWise, Instant Lottery tickets, Daryl Lea licorice and a cute "I love you Mum" heart from Capri who especially chose it so I would feel like I WAS getting something from the Mother's Day Stall!!
And then Brandt presented me some more flowers plus more Instant Lottery Tickets (Scratchies) and I won a combined amount of $27 and a free ticket!
We also went to my parent's place for lunch and I had a very nice Mother's Day indeed! I'll be back with photos of our new carpet (finally!) and some family photos from Mother's Day as well!
