MOTHERS DAY WEEKEND

 
 

I started the weekend feeling a bit sad about my two grandmothers not being here for me to tell them how much I loved them, they were such an important part of my childhood and made me the person I am today.

  
My two daughters have made this weekend one of the best I have had, I got to go out Saturday evening with Jodie.  We had drinks in Follies and then went over to The Tipsey Pigeon for a cocktail and the most wonderful food that I have had in a very long time.  We had a section of duck, lamb, pork, crab, chunky fries, delphinoise potatoes and a selection of fresh bread.  The sauces that were added to these dishes made them so different and my taste buds felt like they were exploding with all the tastes.  The champagne cocktail was the best I have ever had and went down so well, leaving your mouth all fresh.

   
 Dessert was the gypsie tart, I have loved this dessert since school and this was on the finest crunchy pastry base I have ever had.  Jodie had the chocolate pudding which looked just as good.  

   
 The conversation flowed and the time went very quickly, it always does when you are having fun.  I cannot remember the last time I went out in the evening so it was a welcome change and I enjoyed getting dressed up and having some fun.

   
 Jodie gave me a pink Pandora bracelet with three charms, it is so beautiful and I have wanted one for ages.  I think the little bag of the world is great and will be popping that in my handbag as you have to pay for bags in shops now here.
  
Sunday, the sun was shining even though the wind was a bit cold.  I went into town and met Billie and Jade, we did a bit of shopping and we all got something so that was good.  We went into Starbucks and had a lovely coffee, I tried something different and had a caramel Machiatto; I will definitely be having this again as it was delicious.

   
 Billie gave me three charms for my bracelet she got me last year, I love the pussy cat one.  Also chocolates that I have opened already, very nice.  The mum cushion will go nice on my bed or the sofa as it is pink.

I have been very spoilt, but had a super weekend with my two girls.  I love them both so much and it was really nice to spend a bit of quality time with each of them as they both lead very full lives.

  1. I understand missing those you love, may beautiful memories surround you. This was indeed a lovely post. That drink really looked good and I think I just gained ten pounds looking at the food, grin. Your gifts and cards are lovely. Blessings.
