....the highs and lows on Mother's Day.......

...it was good that I was able to get a nice photo of Mum to use in the collage I put together for her for Mother's Day before the day itself... because on Mother's Day she was in the bathroom getting dressed when she bent down and bumped her face near her left eye on the hand basin....... and got a big black eye.......

Poor Mum......
.... understandably... she was not a happy camper.........   BUT....  she is determined to go to Bingo on Monday.... I hope she wins something ... that will make her feel a bit better....

The weather is getting a crisp winter feel about it  and the trees are beautiful in their Autumn colours...




My  Kyton is sleeping later in the mornings now.....








Some of the lovely flowers that were in the arrangements Mum got last weekend...







I'll leave you with a cake my 15yo Grand Daughter made for her mum. My daughter was so excited she brought it to my place to show me.......she was so proud of her daughter....
....a lovely bunch of cupcake Roses......how special..... Mum and I were given one each ... we loved it...
the flowers are from my daughter's garden.....






 Bye for now.......

Hugs and Blessings ..

...Mother's Day Wishes....

.... a little post full of loving wishes for all the Mums out there in Blogland.......


...my sister Trish brought Mum these gorgeous lilac blooms from her Garden .. 2 weeks ago...
I managed to keep these ones alive... just... and here they are today, the day before Mother's Day, in the soft Autumn sunlight in my Kitchen





They still look beautiful ....... a little wilty ... but that gives them a soft look.... and I love the look of the fallen petals on the bench top....

Thanks Trish... Mum smiles every day to see them still 'going'..... xxx

SO... Happy Mother's Day to all....
May your day be filled with smiling faces and lots of Hugs and Blessings.....

A little break in my routine.....


My sister Gwen stayed for 2 weeks with us and she gave Mum this lovely Orchid for an early Mother's Day gift...Mum loves it...

My sister Trish came and spent a weekend with us as well. Trish brought some beautiful flowers from her garden....



 
It was nice to see Mum happy being able to see all her children within a 24 hour period ........ I put together a collage of us all for  her.







The day before Gwen left to go home I was taking some photos outside and fell and broke a bone in my foot....... I have to wear this boot for 6 weeks.....and rest with my leg up as much as possible...


Hubby is doing the cooking and looking after Mum and I very well I'm glad to say....






Hugs and Blessings
