Although some would say I am technically not a mother yet, V decided mums-to-be deserve special treatment too today - I was surprised with breakfast in bed, and a new ghd (the old one sort of blew up).
We took my gorgeous mum out for High Tea at Ravensthorpe House for Mothers Day - cue many amazing little sandwiches, cakes and scones. The rosewater macarons were sublime.
Have been having a lot of fun playing around with the nursery already, washing some gorgeous baby clothes that have been gifted to us by my generous sister, and some amazing pieces from my mum from when we were little ones. Need to clear the spare bed from the room and get the change table set up, but it's shaping up nicely.
Hope the weekend was good to you all - and all the mums were thoroughly spoilt xoxo
Have been having a huuuuge berry phase lately. And yoghurt. Mmmmm blueberries, best.
Amazingly gorgeous bunch of flowers arrived on my desk this morning, with quite possibly the loveliest note - may have shed a teeny wee sneaky tear. And blamed it on preggo hormones, naturellement.
Some of my favorite bloggers have been undergoing inspiring wardrobe purges/ clearouts, which I have been following avidly. (To wit: A Minute Away From Snowing and Autumn Castle). Because I am a follower, I have jumped on the culling bandwagon and have been pulling masses of clothes out my over-stuffed wardrobe and eagerly listing and selling them on eBay. Wondering whether there would be any interest in me sharing a link? Provided I am able to figure it out technologically speaking.
Speaking of jumping on the bandwagon - after reading the rave reviews about those Chobani yoghurt thingies, I decided to give them a go. The blood orange one sounded intriguing - sadly however I found it so sweet as to be inedible! Did I simply pick a bad flavour? Any suggestions?
Treated myself to a day of annual leave last Friday, stretching out a nice little four-day weekend for myself. Indulgent, yes. But so lovely. To follow hereforth, word vomit and extreme photobombage...
Thursday involved the dawn parade with my parents, then sitting down at the beach with a coffee watching the sun come up. And biscuits. Reminiscing about my late grandfathers. Peaceful, and a bit sad.
Friday, Mum and I headed into the weekly produce markets and shopped up a veritable storm. I treated myself to a relaxing sojourn at a cafe round the road, with several coffees and the paper on my iPad.
Saturday, best breakfast evah! Courtesy of said produce markets (and ZOMG-best blackberry jam). Went to see my Mum perform in her choir, love! Draped the bump in stripes. Drank more coffee.
Sunday, enjoyed breakfast with the family at BarLissimo. What a beautiful sunny day it's been! Dinner indulgence of ricotta-stuffed zucchini flower pasta. Made a batch of scones for dessert but forgot to photograph them, oops.
Hope the weekend was good to you all! Did any of you take some time off and enjoy a four-day weekend? Next week is going to be tough going at work I tell you now! I anticipate far more caffeine than is good for one person being consumed.
