Mother's Day Flowers

Oooops I had a little complaint from Danny last night.  He said he was disappointed that I don't post on my blog as often as I used to. 
So I thought - ok I'd better try and get back into it properly.  

Anyway, we had Mother's day on Sunday.  My lovely girls all got me beautiful flowers (and a few chocolates). 
 Have I said that I LOVE flowers!!!  
I think my girls know that, lol. 

Laura sent me a pot of azaleas, it got delivered by post and was a lovely unexpected surprise. They are beautiful too.


Emma got me these beautiful tulips - such a pretty colour.

And I love the texture and pattern on the petals - so pretty!!!

Karen bought these gorgeous liliesThey are sitting on my kitchen windowsill bright and yellow. 
Yellow flowers always make me smile. They make me think of the sun!!!


Karen and Emma were both working all day on Sunday which was a shame as I would have loved to spend the day with them.  

I was also thinking that this time next year our Laura will be mummy to a little boy and wondering if she would be getting a lovely mother's day present.  
Well she text me to say that she got a lovely card from her 'bump'.  Now that is either one clever little guy or maybe I think Kevin had something to do with it. 
  
On a slightly different note - Laura calls her wee expected one 'bubbs', when I was pregnant I called my girls 'my chums in the tum'.  Funny the names we have when we are pregnant isn't it?

Anyway, last night I went out with my sis-in-law to an amateur dramatic production of 'Fiddler on the Roof', and you know what it was really really good. I was so impressed  and it was a very enjoyable evening. 

Best of all today is Friday - my favourite day of the week, it means that tomorrow it is the start of the weekend. Two days of doing what I want and not having to go to work yay!!!
PS I've just nipped back - I realised there is a bit of green in these pictures and can link up to Fiona's Green Day 
I haven't link up to Fiona's blog for a while as I have had no green pictures.
You should go and visit there are lots of lovely pictures and Fiona has a lovely blog

Have a nice weekend everyone :))

Husbands are funny about the blogs, aren't they? Mine likes to know if there have been comments, especially if I change some aspect of it.

Have a lovely weekend,

Lovely to have to look forward to.

Happy St. Patrick's Day Ellie,

Thanks for linking up.

Hope it isn't snowing there,

Wish it would come and go!!

Take care

I really like all your flowers. I didn't realize it was Mother's Day over there, as we have it the second Sunday in May.

My azaleas are in bloom, too. :)
Happy Mother's Day to you.
