Mother's Day

I hope all those mothers out there in blog land enjoyed their day. 
My weekend started of with a few tears on Saturday as this is my third Mother's Day with out my mum and I was feeling the loss all over again. My mother and I were very close and did everything together. Dad said she would make any excuse to get over to my house. We shopped, went on over night trips , did markets , went for tea, anywhere that took our fancy we went to. I read not long ago that your mum is your first love and your first enemy. A funny story about that , I think I must of been around 5 and I had been naughty and mum made me go to bed and I was not alowed to watch young talent time ( my favourite show).
Well the evil child I was took a hair clip from my hair bit of the plastic end bit so it was sharp metal and engraved into the antique bed head MUM IS A BUM. 
Well was I in trouble . To this day I'm constantly reminded of it as only 2 weeks ago we sold that bed and dad went to visit the lady who was restoring it and she said oh yes we had a bit of trouble sanding out the mum is a bum engraved in it. Hence he rang me to tell me. 
This is my mum she wasn't really a bum lol. The things kids say when they don't get their own way.

This is my Mother's Day
We had breakfast at McDonald's 
We went to the mill market ( oh how I love vintage things)
India drew this picture for me she knows how I love elephants. 
The day finished of with Teneale shouting us Thai fusion for tea. Love Thai food.
Not much work got done this weekend but hopefully soon . It's allways nice to get some time out. 


  1. Have you been to Thailand? I can imagine you riding an elephant and being very zen.

    1. No I havnt I would love to visit but I wonder about their training of elephants

  2. I'm sorry your Mother's Day weekend started with tears, losing a parent is so very hard to deal with. She sounds like she was a great Mum and you sounded just a little bit naughty. I'm still having a chuckle over the engraved bed.
