This year mother’s day was a rather subdued and quiet affair for me. Neither of my girls were around to pamper me and I also had to go to work. My sunday morning started with a hot cup of masala tea with my daughter followed by breakfast.
There was still time left to enjoy another cup of masala tea and round of hot buttery toast before venturing out to work on a cold and icy day.
Most of my followers know that I love kitchenware and cookware so I was really pleased to find that my girls had bought me three very cute little ceramic bowls in different pattern in blue, some delicious shortbread cookies and some flowers. The best bit was the lovely homemade Mother's Day card that the girls made.
We had no plans for eating out but when I returned home from work, there was a delicious aroma that had filled the kitchen. Hubby was preparing a lovely mother's day dinner so I was banished from the kitchen while my daughter and him added the finishing touches on the meal. I really enjoyed my day despite the fact that I did not get to spend the whole day with the family, but I guess quality time is more important than quantity.
My surprises were not over, I was also presented with a lovely homemade chocolate cake served with creamy rich and decadent scoops of my favorite Haagen Dazs Cookies and Cream and Pralines and Cream ice cream.
Obviously after such an indulgent dessert we had to eat something healthy while we all enjoyed a family movie nite. The bowl of sweet juicy strawberries were simply delicious to munch on despite being out of season.
I always believe that the act of caring is what makes a day special not expensive presents or elaborate outings. My day was perfect and the added bonus was I didn't even have to do the washing up!!!!!
How was your Mother's Day???
