Happy Mother’s Day

Down here in New Zealand we celebrate Mothers Day on the 2nd Sunday of May.  Although I believe that Mother’s Day has different dates overseas.  My daughter posted me parcel which arrived just in time for me to pack it in the caravan for our weekend away at Carterton.  And what did she send me?  A beautiful card, and a packet of Spring bulbs – how lovely, they will soon get planted in a pot outside.  I just love the scent of freesias.

From my daughter
While away with our caravan club friends, there was a special Morning Tea today in honour of all the Mums amongst our members.  All the men had to do was prepare and bring over tea or coffee as their spouses preferred. 

Here comes Robin with  the coffee

And our Rally organizers for the weekend, Diane and Barry, prepared a scrumptious Morning Tea, although I suspect that Diane did most of the cooking.  The table was beautifully set, and we all tucked in to our home made morning tea.

Lots of home made goodies

So Happy Mother’s Day to all, wherever you may live.  Hope your Sunday was a great one.

Hi to you both, and happy day to you Jenny.We had a quiet day at home, friends visited, phone rang, emails came, and I managed to finish one block. Freesias, the perfume tells us before we see those delicate flowers just where they are.
