Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day, one and all, to all those wonderful women out there.  Hope you had a lovely day.


My daughter Nicky had sent a parcel earlier in the week, so I put it away until this morning  to open it. Wonder what’s inside?


Inside was a selection of Nicky’s hand made soap, and a Mother’s Day Card.   Looks like she thinks I’ve done a great job as a Mum, as she has turned out “awesome”!

From Nicky

On Saturday evening we went out to a Mother’s Day Dinner with a group from Pink Ladies, (Breast Cancer Support Group).  About 20 of us dined at Pipi Point Restaurant at Waitarere Beach where we had tables set up for us decorated with pretty pink tablecloths.  We all found a seat and settled down.  It’s not surprising that this restaurant specializes in fish meals.  I enjoyed a Fish Basket which included tasty seafood wontons, very yummy, and Robin had Fish of the Day.

The food was great, and very large portions indeed.  I noticed several taking a doggy bag home as they couldn’t finish the meal.  There was plenty of chatter going on around the large table, and once again, it was amazing to find out from a couple of our table partners that we have friends in common.  And Robin discovered that he and another man who looked vaguely familiar worked at Post Office Headquarters together many years ago.  New Zealand certainly is a small place.

Your daughter has a fun sense of humor: the card is a hoot!

Wyoming (a rural US state) is much like that, as it is difficult to go anywhere without finding a connection to someone you know.

Happy Mother's Day!
