Ending the week on a High Note...

Happy Mothers Day to all the mums and mums-to-be ( I know a few of those at the moment)

Becoming a mother was the best thing I have ever done in my life. I wake up with excitement everyday knowing Im going to see their little faces. Most mornings I get a huge smile back at me, other days I get crying for milk or whining which means someone needs a cuddle - its all good!

I had a wonderful Mothers Day after an exhausting week of looking after two sick boys and a rundown me.
Big thanks to my Mother and Mother in law for dropping everything to come and help out during the week and giving me the chance to get a little rest too - they are blessings in my life! The chicken soup was yummy too!

We went out for Mothers Day lunch - we met up with my parents and my sister and her family at a restaurant called 'Italy on the Bay'. What a gorgeous view of Brighton beach!
The food was very average but the company was great and we all had a good time! all the mum's got free champagne too - very nice!
In the late afternoon we caught up with Andrew's parents for coffee and cake.

I was pleasantly suprised when my hubby and boys handed me a wrapped gift to find they got me the cookbook I wanted, 'Apples for Jam' by Tessa Kiros Hoorah!!!
My husband does read my blog after all heehee!
Bravo Tessa! Its a gorgeous book - I love it to bits!


  1. happy mama's day, Ana! is the recipe from the book you received?

  2. Thanks Kat!
    No, its just a recipe a friend gave me and I had some extra Oranges from my parents tree so made some muffins for Saturday brunch - pretty good though! I call them my Vitamin C muffins!

  3. After having my husband phone me twice from the bookshop and saying he couldn't find it, and then suggesting he try "Julie & Julia", I ended up with a tool box! Not as bad as it sounds though, it's to put all my sewing bits in. So, am very eager to hear how the recipes go. And I love the muffin one - am going to try it out. Seeing as the banana muffins are a luxury these days. Happy Belated Mothers Day to you too Anastasia.
