It's pretty amazing to have a day when us Mum's are celebrated, what a compliment!
I love being a mum it's the hardest thing and the best thing! Kids are amazing! little sponges that soak up the world, the cute things they come out with and the naughty things they do that force us to hold in our sniggers and give our best mum look!
I remember the days of handmade Mother's Day cards with scribbly crayon pictures and the haphazard cupcake made by my girl (and probably prodded and poked by 30 classmates!) I remember my daughter scuttling into the room with her hands behind her back, flowers peeking over her shoulder while I tried to guess what suprise she was hiding. Good times ❤
For me being a mum is about many things, like inwardly giggling at the 'blame it on the doll' naughtiness, nursing a scraped knee/shoulder/shin (always something!) taking deep breaths whilst scrubbing at lipstick circles (the exact height of my daughter) from my dining room wall! Tears at the school plays, the picnics, the best hugs ever...the list is honestly endless!
Some think occasion days are commercialised but I like them, there's definitely room in this world for treats. My Mother's days are grown up nowadays and tend to involve eating! I had a great day having lunch in the sun with the husband while my daughter worked (I sent her pictures of our drinks glistening in the sunshine so she knew we were thinking of her) 😉and then dinner and cocktails once my daughter had finished work. 😁
We may have taken our mother/daughter bonding a little too far when I met her from work and realised we were both sporting the same top! (the joys of her working in a clothes shop!) and of course we then bumped into anyone and everyone who kindly pointed it out!
I thought my look of despair was bad enough but my daughter can't even bring herself to be seen!
Lunch in the sun was at The Boathouse
Dinner was at Cafe Riva
We enjoyed girly cocktails at the Fizzy Tarte
