What happened on Mother’s Day? (Monday 27th March)

I wrote a list of 5 things I wanted on Mother’s Day: So…what do I want for Mother’s Day? .

Did I get my wish?

Well, no actually.

But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing as I had a lovely day.

  • First of all I didn’t have a lie in. The clocks changed so I stayed in bed until 7.30 but my body felt it was 6.30. We all got up together, the kids were desperate for me to see the presents and cards. Chris thought they might actually explode with anticipation! They then realised there wasn’t a card from Zach so made their own: Matthew’s had a bottle of wine on the front and Anya’s had maths.
  • I didn’t have pizza. I had some leftover rice that needed using up so I had that with some rather unappealing curry from a packet πŸ™ I’m saving the pizza until later in the week when I REALLY need a treat.
  • No nap. I decided to stop feeding Zach to sleep during his day naps so no nap for me either. I did have the joy of listening to him scream for 45 minutes before getting him out of his cot so we could visit my mum.
  • Actually the kids were pretty fab. We had great fun in the garden, we found a frog, we ate the cake that Chris surprised me with. I don’t think I raised my voice once. The only problem was Zach not sleeping πŸ™
  • No diamond earrings but then I didn’t really want them if you read my post πŸ™‚ Instead I got a Harry Potter Hogwarts Express 3D puzzle, wine, chocolates and a cake with purple icing.

I can’t figure out how to get the photos on here so please check them out on Instagram or FacebookΒ sorry I’m a techno numpty πŸ™‚

My mum got the card I showed you inΒ Let’s DITCH Mother’s DayΒ and some books that she pointed out. We also Skyped my nan to wish her a happy Mother’s Day and let the kids entertain her for a bit πŸ™‚

I hope you all had a lovely day even if it didn’t turn out quite how you imagined!


  1. I am with you on that lost hour, it seemed a bit mean depriving us mum’s of an hour on our special day. Glad you had a fab day regardless #MMBC x

  2. Last Mother’s Day I ended up crying so I was just so pleased to have not cried from the arghhhhhs of being a mum on Mother’s Day this year…it was golden in comparison. Maybe it changes when they get older?

  3. My two acted up all day and the husband left for a sales conference in Canada so I didn’t have the best day. We’re going to do it again (minus the grumping!) next Sunday! #AnythingGoes

  4. it sounds like you had a perfect day to me. a day with your loved ones, but that damned hour screwed me too! Still desperately trying to cope with the lack of sleep..
    Thank you for linking up to #TriumphantTales again lovely x

  5. It still sounds like you had a lovely day! We are still trying to get into a new routine since the clock change, it’s thrown us out completely!

  6. Sounds like a nice day. What lovely children! (BTW, in my reply to your comment on the Pound Cake, I suggested a combination of wheat-free flours. I’ve developed quite a lot of GF recipes and have a GF category on my Recipes index page.) Sorry you got cheated out of that hour! I hate the time change twice a year. Wish they’d just pick a time, *any* time, and go with it all year!

  7. Any kind of day that includes a cake with purple icing sounds like a winner to me! Great idea to save the pizza as a belated treat for later in the week too. A nice little pick me up for when you need it. Thanks for sharing with #DreamTeam x

  8. How rude of them to take that precious hour away from us on Mothers Day. It was like ‘here have a day all about you, but for an hour less than any other day of the year!’ I’m glad you had a great day all the same. Thank you for linking up to #TriumphantTales, please do come back again tomorrow!
