Here in the UK it's Mothering Sunday. As always in the midst of their busy lives my children have remembered me.
I was shopping with Rhiannon yesterday. She bought me a beautiful Sophie Conran candle with the most wonderful scent. Whilst paying she had a conversation with the assistant who mentioned that when the candle is finished the bowl can be used for cooking. They mused that it would be particularly suitable for a soufflé. If it is indeed used for a soufflé it will be a first for this mother!! Rhi and Stuart will have invited us for a meal this evening, which I know will be delicious.
Tom sent me some lovely tulips and card courtesy of Moonpig. They were delivered yesterday and the arrangement large enough for me to take some down to my Mothers grave which is about 200m away, in our village churchyard.
The weather is warm and sunny, I'm baking a chocolate cake and Tim is busy watching the Malaysian Grand Prix.
Happiness, contentment and certainly counting my blessings...
UPDATE 1: Perhaps everything in my Mothering Sunday garden isn't so rosy; instead of baking a cake it would be more accurately described as BURNING a chocolate cake. Still a covering of frosting can hide a multitude of sins! Sorry, Jean! You can find Jean at -bakinginfranglais.blogspot.co.uk
2: I love my iPad, but the blogger app is very clumsy to edit or insert links and resize pics? It won't even let me publish and then go to blogger to edit later. I think I'll revert to using windows live writer which allows me do everything I want to do, easily! There doesn't seem to be an app for live writer. Why not? There's app for almost everything else!
