Happy Monday lovelies.

Have you all have had a lovely weekend?

I hope all you Mum’s out there had a great, relaxing day yesterday for Mother’s Day?

Did you get spoilt?

My eldest two Son’s are both living away so it was a quiet relaxing day at home with my youngest two and a nice cooked dinner of my choice, once the Husband was home from work.

My Daughter bless her, realised the night before Mother’s Day that my eldest two Son’s cards haven’t arrived. She found out last years cards out of her craft box and put them in a big envelope for me to open Sunday morning.

I excitedly open my cards and did not have a clue they were from the year before.

I did wonder why they were all in one envelope and did think that one looked like last years but never thought why!?

My eldest Son phoned me to apologise for not getting over and he would bring my presents over as soon as he could.

“No worries, thanks for the card” I replied.

What, “I thought I had just explained why I didn’t give you a card!” I was trying to get home but been really busy at work. He said.

He was thinking I was being sarcastic.

But, you did get me a card, I opened it this morning!?

Then penny then dropped!! Whoops! 

All day I was thinking how lovely it was of my Daughter to do this, to make me happy. Which it did make me very happy, knowing what a thoughtful young girl she really is.

    When I lived at home my job was to call my brothers from my parents room on Mother's Day and my Mom's birthday, hang up so my brothers could call back and look like heroes. Mom remarked a few years ago that it was odd how as they got older they stopped calling her. As in when I moved out and no longer was there to call them, they stopped calling.Your daughter is a sweetie.

    • 13 March 2018 / 09:52

      Aww, this is so sweet. One of my Son's never called. Too busy enjoying himself 🙂

    Oh bless your daughter, that is genius. Maybe she should just have told your lads what she had done! I had a roast dinner for 7 cooked my our middle son (which is impressive as he doesn't cook much), a cake from our daughter and a text message at 10 to midnight saying he'd talk to me tomorrow from the youngest whose now away at uni!

      Thanks Julie 🙂 Aww, that sounds amazing. I bet it was a great day.
