Mothers Day Treats

Hello everyone, and to all of my readers who are Mums, a very Happy Mothers Day!

I have received some lovely cards and flowers from my 4 children...

Such lovely colours, really cheerful...

...and also received a bouquet of these from DH...

here are both bunches together, really brightening up my fireplace (I do love flowers)

I also received this lovely sampler box of Yankee Candle votives in my favourite scents from my lot, yes, they are Christmas scents but these are my favourite from the range, I love the cinnamon, vanilla and spicy fragrances so much)

Apparently something else is due to arrive from Amazon tomorrow, so the fun will be spread over an extra day!  They have really spoiled me I have to say.

I popped round to visit my Darling Mum this morning, she is coming along to our house later for dinner.  Dearest Daughter is making a cake for us both for dessert, with caramel flavours and a filling of Lotus Biscuit Cream (have you tried those biscuits, they are often served along with a coffee in cafes, hence in this house we call them "complimentary biscuits".  They are so yummy, full of caramel flavour).

I didn't have a lie-in this morning as we were all up early to watch the Malaysian Grand Prix - sadly our favourite driver had a pretty poor day, due to someone running into the back of his car (cue lots of booing and hissing from the Moonstruck crew) but still a lot of fun to watch.

Well, off to have another cuppa and perhaps a bit of crochet- I could really get used to this being spoiled lark!



  1. What lovely flowers and I love yankee candles, enjoy the rest of your day.

  2. Happy Mother's Day to you, Helen! It sounds like your children treated you very well. The flowers are beautiful and the candles will be lovely. I like the spicy, warm scents myself. Have a wonderful day.

  3. Happy Mother's Day to you, Helen. And thanks for visiting my blog again!
    Finnish Mothers are celebrated in March! So waiting...

  4. Happy Mother's Day, Helen! You must be a wonderful mom to get flowers from all your children. Have a nice time with your mom and family for dessert. And I hope your flowers last a long time! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
