Ode to Mothers (Especially Mine)

It is Mothers Day today and I am feeling like the worst daughter in the world.

Because of the timing of this holiday I hardly ever get to spend it with my mum anymore – you see her birthday is on the 10th of March and so (that being last weekend) since being at university and living the other side of the country, it isn’t so easy to just pop home anymore – especially two weekends in a row (if only money did grow on trees!).

Last weekend it was really lovely to be home and spend time with the family.  Mum and I had a great weekend doing girly things (mostly cake related) and we went to the Squires Kitchen exhibition on her actual birthday.  It was aces! (and yes we probably spent too much money!)

Here is the birthday cake I made her

Plain Sponge with Lemon Butter Cream and Homemade Strawberry Jam Filling

And also there were chocolate cuppies involved!

{please excuse the hand – I have old lady hands – but I was about to eat it and thought you might want to see! recipes to come soon}

This time of year is really brilliant for my mum to have a birthday.  This is because, not only are there loads of mum-themed gifts around but also its spring time and the brilliant colours and flowers of spring are my mum’s fave too! Win Win!

So why you ask am I feeling like a bad daughter?

Maybe it my own guilt about things in general but mostly because I forgot to post her card until yesterday 😦 boo me!

So in an attempt to make up for it a bit,

Here is just a few of the reasons why my mum is so very awesome:

  • She taught me to cook/bake
  • She does jager bombs with us
  • She always knows when im upset and just what to say
  • She is the nicest person I know
  • She is adorable when she swears
  • She plays ring of fire with us
  • She has a huge heart
  • She is never mean (even if someone deserves it)
  • She is the person you can always count on no matter what

While the list is practically infinite this will suffice for today!

This is my Wonderful Mum and I

(I am the Bungle from rainbow – I was fundraising!)

Take some time today to tell your mum just how much you love her and how brilliant she is

Mum you are a superstar, my inspiration and the best mum a daughter could ever ask for

  1. To my beautful talented daughter – I love you so much – this was sooooo much better than a card
    🙂 and we did get to spend time together last weekend. I know if you had been home I would have had tea brought to me in bed (that’s if I hadn’t beaten you down to the kitchen first !!) a wonderful dinner cooked for me and just told to relax and enjoy the day.

    The sun shone, and the flowers that were delivered yesterday are georgeous – thank you. We have next year when all the hard work of studying is over to celebrate mothers day.
