Today I was treated to breakfast in bed. I received flowers, tea and chocolates, lots of cuddles, and the mini french press for coffee that I’ve been coveting for a while. Then I lay in bed with my book, my laptop (so I could write my post for my Mum) and a cup of tea for an utterly indulgent extra couple of hours. I had to get up in the end because the amazing smells that were drifting through the house as Adam cooked up an Anglo-Saxon feast for lunch were making my tummy rumble.
We sat on the front deck for lunch with the sun filtering down through the tree branches and the occasional leaf falling into our plates.
Afterwards I took my camera into our front garden to capture the little bits of autumn colour we do get. Our tibouchina trees are in bloom with masses of purple flowers.
I hope all you wonderful mums out there had a fantastic Mother’s Day. I’ve been thinking of those for whom Mother’s Day is a difficult time, I hope for you that there was kindness and love in your day from the people around you and possibly chocolate too.

Happy Mother's Day! Great shots of the flowers….but all that food….Looks DELISH!!
What a great day you must have had. Of course it's well-deserved! Sorry we didn't get together with you guys while we were there – we really wanted to keep it small and low-key because it's likely the only holiday we'll get this year. We are still hoping that we're able to make it up to your Xmas party this year though. Shift roster permitting, of course. 🙂
Feast and feast of flowers.
