A year in pictures – Day 85

Mothering SundayMothering Sunday is always tough. A day of mixed emotions. On one hand I miss my Mum so much. On the other hand I am super grateful for the two lovely children that I have. I know so many people who still long to have children and I remember well what the pain of waiting feels like. I am grateful that I now, at least in part, get to experience Mother’s Day as a joyful day rather than a sad day.

Today has been a good day. I had church this morning and sang in worship group which I really enjoyed and then we went out for lunch with my sister and her family, Dad and my cousin Stef and her lovely fiance.

This photo was taken a few weeks ago but I love it. The children gave me a lovely gift of bulbs and a new mug and thermos flask and both had made cards at pre-school and Daddy had also got one. The Little Miss made me laugh a lot though by continually wishing me Happy Birthday. It was very sweet.

Little GardenerIt is time to get out into the garden.

I have planted up loads of potato bags and some plants from my Dad .

Fortunately I have a little helper to assist with the watering.

Amazon PantryFood shopping is so expensive over here and I have decided to see how much cheaper it is to stop at Amazon Pantry.

This was my first order. Very exciting. Let’s see how long it takes for us to use this lot up!

Emergency suppliesOur poor lovely childminder was off sick with a bug today and we had to try and cobble together some childcare.

Thank goodness my lovely sister and cousin were able to help us out.

This week has been pretty ropey at work and it made me smile so much to find a bottle of wine stashed in The Little Miss’ rucksack with the note ‘thought you might need this later on’. Legend.

Spring flowersI adore spring flowers.

They are so bright and cheerful and make me feel instantly happier.

These are especially beautiful and have taken pride of place on my kitchen table.

Best friendsWe are lucky to have tolerant, gentle pussy cats.

Eric, whilst very patient, would only put up with being alternately stroked and kissed for so long!

Beach weather

Today I cooked a really good roast dinner (even if I do so say myself) and my sister and niece and cousin came for lunch.

Despite the grey and the cold we headed off to the beach and met up with friends.

It doesn’t matter how grey it is a bit of jumping in the sea makes everything seem more fun!

Distinctly Average

I love a good quiz and tonight I went along to one to raise money for This is Epic.

Here are my team members. Our team name was Distinctly Average and to be honest that summed us up. It was great fun though.

Beach life

Another lovely day and another nice walk on the beach with my sister and my dog.

So much gratitude for all we have here, the beach and family and most of all time together.
