Mothers Day began early for me
when Steve surprised me with flowers on Saturday night.
Lucky me! More flowers.
(And more floristry practice for Steve,
arranging them in a suitable vase or jug,
he's getting quite good at it now ;-)
I had hoped to manage to go to church in the morning,
but it was not to be.
We all enjoyed a sleep-in and after a late breakfast
I was given these lovely presents.
including some fun jewellery from Steve,
that I picked out on our holiday at Green Point,
this sweet ceramic bird from Emily also came home from the lakeside.
Emily also gave me some very cute fabric.
Laura gave me a notepaper cube
and some nutty treats.
Steve also gave me Downton season 4,
just what the doctor ordered for this next week of rest.
Steve moulded cookie dough into hearts for morning tea.
(Such a romantic).
Dinner was delicious, once again provided by Steve
who is of course doing all the cooking these days.
After lunch we played Cluedo and then went for a short walk
(just around the block).
It was lovely to do that again.
Steve made cupcakes for afternoon tea.
I am so thankful to my wonderful Steve,
who has taken such good care of me the last two weeks,
giving up so much time to manage everything,
and still made the effort to make
my Mothers Day a special day.
