My Mother's Day

This is my Mother's Day post, the day after Mother's Day why a day late well yesterday being Mother's Day I was busy doing nothing much and the usual Sunday stuff as well and by the time I had time to write a post I didn't feel like it so here it is Monday morning and I am starting this while Leo has breakfast.

Anyway my Mother's Day was bloody awesome it kicked off with Natasha waking me up to give me a present, yes don't faint anyone Natasha gave me a Mother's Day present. A really lovely long in length and long sleeve jacket that is oh so warm, I love it and it was such a surprise that I felt happy for the rest of the day.

Next up Jessica turns up just after I got back from my morning walk to give me her presents, she bought me some kitchen stuff and a watch pendant in the shape of an owl which I oh so love. I will wear it a lot I reckon.

Than it was time to head on over to the Eastern Tiger for lunch, which was really nice plenty of prawns and oysters for those who like such food and all mums got a rose and a free drink there were 7 mums at our table. Dad told mum after they left that he really liked lunch and would like to see us do more family functions out there instead of at home as it means no work for mum.

Dad even said he would like to go out there for Christmas lunch but mum shot that down fast no bloody way she wants to do that, not for Christmas other days yes but not Christmas.

Kathy kept telling me that I didn't have to pay for her to come out with us but since I usually end up paying for Natasha I decided this time I would pay for Kathy instead and told her it doesn't always have to be about Natasha, she is just as important to me and I am sure Natasha would understand, if she knew.

Tim gave me a comfy seat for my computer chair to give me lift and comfort this is something I really wanted and in fact I was the one to go and find it and buy it for myself but that is ok better to do that and get what I want/need then something I don't want or need.

My sister Sue spent Mother's Day in Queensland with Kirsty but according to mum she is feeling homesick and was missing her mum yesterday, she will be flying home tomorrow. Which means Kelli will be back here either this afternoon or tomorrow I can't remember when she said and I was only talking to her about it an hour

Speaking of Sue, my sweetheart Kelli gave me this, it is a block to go on the wall about how the love of an aunty and a booklet of vouchers for thinks like choc chip biscuits or a massage from Kelli which I loved also.

All in all yesterday was one of the best Mother's Day I have had in years
