Happy Mothers Day 09
The kids brought in some presents purchased with care from the school Mothers Day Stall (I'd primed them that soap and chocolate were the best options, in a bid to ward off crappy china figurines. Not to mention my two worst presents that somehow people used to give me ALL THE TIME: candles and/or foot lotion. Not that these things are terrible in themselves and I don't want to sound ungrateful or anything [but you know I was really], just I have a fear of candle-initiated housefires and I never use foot lotion. Foot massages: yes, foot lotion: no, no, no.) Plus there was a cup of tea in bed, followed by a sleep-in and let's not forget TWO cards each from the kids, two in English, two in Italiano. Molto buono.
And Fixit just arrived with some very lovely flowers.
NB. All photos featuring the children are now classified as "private" on Flickr and can only be seen by my Contacts (that is, if you click through to Flickr for a better look at them). If I know you or your blog I am happy to be friends with you on Flickr . Joining is free and easy, and you can store up to 200 photos there.
