Happy Mothers Day!!

Hope all the mothers are having a great day!!
Just got back from a lovely lunch with my parents....the boys are now having a nap then we're off to my inlaws for roast dinner!

Here is my mum. Love her to bits although she drives me crazy gentle soft spoken mother here - she's strong, loud and demanding, if you upset her she'll go on and on for days, she's a perfectionist, an excellent seamstress and homemaker although not too traditional (my dad does ALOT!) but I wouldnt have it any other way! I look upto her and love her for who she is....hey when Im 50 she'll be 68! how cool is that....Two days ago she rolled off her fitness ball and hurt her hip....thats all we heard about at lunch today sister and I couldnt stop smirking! Love you mum!!

" A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the kind of car I drove....but the world may be a different because I was important in the life of a child"

    Oh my goodness your mum is stunning, and please don't tell me she's turning 68 (she looks much younger than that)!

    What a lovely tribute to your mum on Mother's day, hope she enjoyed herself. Same to you too!x

  4. happy mother's day to you, anastasia! what a lovely day you are having.
    i love what you say about your mom, mine is coming to visit us on wednesday, staying for a monoth and a half! i feel the same about her, i love her and she drives me crazy.
    {thanks for tagging me, i will start thinking about those 7 things}.

  5. Cruststation - hehee
    she'll be 68 when I turn 50
    so she is 18yrs older than me....she'll be 55 this year!

  6. To think when you were little you mum was all grown up and would have seemed to have the knowledge of the world to you. Yet now your and adult and her being only 18 years older, it must seem so weird that actually she's not that much older than you.

    The woodcutter and I have 13 year age difference (he's the elder.) Now there's then also only 13 years age difference between him and my mother ! - love Julia x

  7. Happy Mothers Day,to you my dear !!!

  8. Your mom is beautiful!
    I hope you both have enjoyed a beautiful Mother's Day today!

  9. Hope you had a lovely Mothers Day Anastasia...

  10. Hullo dear, I'm sorry it's been so long since I stopped by, you're a peach for dropping by to check on me :) Your mum sounds a lot like mine...I am so excited I will finally see her in just a few days! Oh, and I loved your list, I was a Helen Christensen fan's kinda funny, there is a girl here on Germany's next top model who is like a mini Helena. But I can't stand here because she is a little b#*%&. Ah, well, I guess there's only one Helena ;)

  11. So sweet, and your mum is gorgeous! Love that quote at the end, how true

  12. What a glam Mum! She fits right in here. You are very lucky to have each other.

  13. You have such an amazing selection of pictures.

  15. Yes I can see your mum to be a very strong will and energetic person. She looks wonderful!
