Happy Mother’s Day, to all the mothers around the world. I had a really special day and I hope all my friends and family who are Mothers did too.
I had a lovely weekend actually. I am including Saturday’s breakfast as it was the healthiest thing I managed all weekend. I had a green smoothie, with hemp protein, Hazelnut milk, chia seeds, spinach, mixed berries, cocoa nibs and Acaii berry powder.
The rest of Saturday was descended in to a cake fest, bread fest and boozy 3 course dinner with lovely local friends.
We then went to my sister Abi’s for lunch where I started with a gin and tonic plus crisps, humous and falafel.
Love the tulips my neices and nephew bought their Mummy.
My brother-in-law, Jim is a fabulous cook. He doesn’t cut corners and everything tastes delicious. Today we had slow roasted pork with roast potatoes, roast carrots, roast parsnips, spring greens and broccoli. It was just wonderful even more so because I didn’t cook or even help prepare any of it.
As if all that were not enough, my niece Charlotte had made some delicious caramel cupcakes.
I was totally stuffed. Thank you to Jim for cooking such a feast and for looking after us so well. I had a fabulous afternoon, eating and drinking far too much, chatting and laughing with Abi and doing no chores at all. I have worked so hard and been so busy lately, a day off was just what I needed. Thank you – big hugs.
At home I lit the orange and neroli candle my little cherub bought me today. I thought again, about my Mother and how she never knew the special young man who is her Grandson that she never had the privilege to know. And he never had the pleasure to know her either.
My Mother only met one of her Grandchildren, my lovely Lara. Here we are taking Lara to Lyme Regis for the first time.
She was so thrilled to be a Grandma. Such a shame it couldn’t be for longer.
