I am lucky on both sides of the coin today as I have a wonderful mother (who wasn't home when I tried calling her but let it be on the record that I did) and my two darling daughters. I am not one of those people who likes to go out on Mother's Day. It is not my thing in any way, shape or form. I only ask for some basic things on Mother's Day.
Firstly - homemade cards. Does it for me every time. I prefer them to all the Hallmark cards in the world -
My second request is purely self indulgent and only happens on Mother's Day or my birthday in this house and I instigate it. But, that being said, John pulls out all the stops and produces once he knows he is under the gun. And that is breakfast in bed.

... was just the icing on the cake.
Oh no, I tell a lie. The bears were not the icing on the cake. Because this is - literally.
Yes, that is blue icing. Yes, they are sitting on the kitchen counter, were still in their pyjamas and probably licked their fingers numerous times. Isn't it great?!
To everyone out there who is a mother - have a very Happy Mother's Day - whether you are officially celebrating in your country or not.
