Happy Mother's Day

Well I've had  lovely Mother's day today.  
I've got three of the best daughters a mum could ever want! 

I decided today (being Mother's Day) I was going to do something that I wanted to do so first off I went to see my mum with a card and a potted lilly. Then when I came back home Imade a big pot of soup and some delicious (even if I do say so myself) choc chip cookies. 
For dinner I  made a roast chicken dinner, which everyone seemed to enjoy. You really just can't beat roast chicken on a Sunday evening :))

The clocks changed to British Summer time last night so we lost an hour's sleep but gained an extra hour of daylight this evening which is always good. 

Our Laura and wee Riley came for a visit on Friday evening and left again on Saturday morning.  It was so lovely to see them and we will be going through to them in a couple of weeks for Riley's 1st birthday.

 Cookies - do you fancy one?  They were really tasty :))


 Lovely flowers I got for Mother's day!

Can you believe tomorrow is April 1st - I can't, this year is just flying by so quickly!

Along with the brighter evenings our weather has had a turn for the better and I'm really looking forward to Spring and Summer.

I had a fairly stressful week last week but now all is well and after my relaxing weekend I'm ready for the new week ahead.

Hope it's a good one for everyone :))

It's Spring!!!

Yes that's right - it's the first day of Spring today. 

Well I woke up to heavy rain and fairly strong wind.  As the day progressed however the sky cleared the rain stopped and the sun even came out for a short while.  So hopefully that will be the end of the wettest winter I have ever known.  

I hope the weather is improving  for everyone!!

I haven't blogged for AGES and I haven't even visited anyone's blog for AGES.  I apologise for that I don't have an excuse or reason other than I must have lost my mojo!!  
I haven't been out to take any pics mainly because the weather has been soooo miserable.  But, now that Spring has sprung - and the weather should be getting better - I am hoping to get out and about more.  

Anyway to that effect I bought myself some lovely daffodils recently to add a splash of lovely yellow colour, and I took a few shots of them.







Don't you think daffodils are beautiful?

So, what have I been up to in all this time?

First of all we have been planning our holiday this year.  We are going to be off to Portugal for a wedding!  One of Danny's cousins is getting wed and that is where they live. 
How exciting is that? 
It's not till the tail end of the year so a wee bit of a wait but it's definitely something to look forward to!

Our wee Riley will  turn one next month, where on earth has that time gone?!  He is crawling now and so pleased with himself :))  He is getting so big and utterly adorable :)

We have an apple tree in our garden and have been really lucky since we got it with the apples it has produced. We went out and bought two more apple trees, hey before you know it I'll have my own wee orchard, lol.

Anyway I'm off for now, I'll be around to visit blogs tomorrow to see what everyone has been up to :))
