A Very Lovely Mother’s Day

Yesterday we celebrated Mother’s Day in the UK. I hadn’t originally planned anything special; since my husband was at work all weekend and we only have one car between us. My daughter is only 2, so I couldn’t exactly take a day off. As it was, we had a lovely day out with my sister and her partner. We visited a local craft and antique centre called Dagfields. It is a wonderful cornucopia of crafts, antiques and delicious food, and it also houses my favourite local second-hand bookshop, Booklore.

I was delighted because I wasn’t expecting it. Having only recently enrolled her at pre-school, I take great pleasure in seeing the paintings and creations she produces after her sessions. Here is her Mother’s Day gift for me, what do you think?

Oh, and my husband didn’t get out of it totally. Last week when I visited a spa I had a foot massage as my Mother’s Day gift. He also surprised me last night by returning home from work and brandishing a box of Cadbury’s Milk Tray chocolates. He knows how to keep his pregnant wife happy!
