Happy Mother’s Day! It’s been a lovely day in our household. I’ve had both types of sleep in – the one where you wake up and realise everyone has gone, and the one where you sip tea and read your iPad in bed. What a treat!
I was delivered breakfast in bed – an egglet on ciabatta with lashings of smoked salmon and a cup of tea. Just in case you’re wondering, an egglet is a Williams family invention, inspired by a teppanyaki omelette!
I was showered with gifts – Boyo made me the most beautiful card with, count them, 47 lovehearts. The Mother’s Day Stall came up trumps this year – a pretty journal, a Worlds Best Mum cup (Apostrophe Man strikes again) and tealight candle holders. I also received silicone egg poachers (apparently perfect for making mini puddings too – hello baby!), a mobile phone charger seat, Adriano Zumbo chocolates and lots of time to lounge in bed!
Eventually, I got rousted out of bed. I swear I was actually in the process of getting up!
Our plan today is a shopping trip to buy Boyo some new PJs, and then we’re off to lunch at our favourite pub, the Three Weeds in Rozelle. The best beer battered fish and chips ever, and did I mention the wattle toffee daiquiris? Come to mama!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas, to all the mamas-to-be, to all the future mamas, especially those stuck in the seventh circle of assisted fertility hell. Special thoughts to all the mamas who have lost babies, and to all those who have lost their mamas. I get that it has become a commercial monster, but if you ignore that and concentrate on thinking about how special mamas are in your life, then it loses all the trappings. But don’t forget our breakfast in bed and chocolates! The handmade cards just make our day too! x
