Saturday, which was the first half, made it a crazy party kind of a weekend. A Hey, Little E! how grand to be six! weekend. A drive to the seaside-ing, small friend meeting, sit at the side and watching, coffee drinking, candle blowing, cake eating, back to Little E's for some present opening, late home again kind of a weekend. And there's very little which could top that.
But Sunday, which was the second half, had a very good try. Sunday made it a lovely relaxing, stay at home for Mothers Day weekend. A flower smelling, chocolates choosing, new Pilates top loving, card opening, phone answering (him to me), phone calling (me to Mum), special chicken dinner enjoying, pavlova scoffing kind of a weekend. Hard to beat.
Me On Monday?
Well, when they led me to the kitchen table on Sunday morning they asked me to remember that bit in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation: that bit in which Clarke goes to hide the presents and ends up discovering an old Mothers Day gift he had completely forgotten about. Then they asked me to close my eyes and hold out my hands..
..for a special Christmas tower of Jaffa Cakes. Which had been forgotten about. Really. Sell By dates? I laugh in the face of Sell By dates. Especially where Jaffa Cakes are concerned.
Have a great week!
Last week Miriam, Rinda, Starnitesky, Doris, Fiona, Rachel B, Susanne, Ladkyis, Krafty Karen, Deb, Eileen T and Alison all gave us a wave and invited us to share what they'd been up to. Go on, give 'em a wave back. Or give us a wave with a "Monday" of your own? Especially if it has Jaffa Cakes.
