Mother's Day At The House

Straight to the blog.... these gorgeous gifts from my boys.... enjoy!

...from youngest...interesting comment about my feet... he always says to me "I love the sound of your walking Mum".

 
...and this beautifully wrapped present, from youngest, revealed another hand-made card, as my instructions were: 'no purchased presents allowed - only hand-made'.

 

That's me, cheering him on at school sports day.



Like something out of 'Little House On The Prairie'...
"your loving son", where does he get his vocabulary from?

 

Hubby got in on the act too! His comment about hospital refers to the difficult decision I have to make this morning - 'do I go to hospital (I am so crook with this damn cough that I can hardly breathe) or do I go to the 'Boutique Markets' with my lads and meet up with all the girls there? I'm leaning towards the markets...I'm rather stoic when it comes to my chronically tragic lungs. 
Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely Mums out there.
A-M xx

  11. I have just read Home Beautiful and was really inspired by your beautiful home and now this blog.

    I am a Melbourne Mum of two and am about to embark on the renovation / extension journey myself. I have just started a blog about my design ideas and the process, also looking at ways to make the house sustainable - GeorgyGdesign.blogspot.com

    Anyway will now take the time to become a follower and read through your older posts. Would love it if you can give me ideas as I go along with my renovation.

    Thanks
    Georgy
