Monday post 20/03/23: Mothers’ Day treats

Yesterday was Mothers’ Day in the UK and I had a lovely time, thanks to my three “chaps”. Elder Son had been planning a spectacular afternoon tea (that I had in the evening, like last year) and also surprised me with a present. Both sons also gave me beautiful cards and Younger Son sent his brother a contribution towards the costs. Lovely Husband also supported the day as he always does.

As I am still recovering my “normal” strength, I spent the day in bed, but I am hoping to be able to get up more this week and take some gentle exercise. I also have a delivery to look forward to – what could it be?

Anyway, here is a photo of the truly amazing afternoon tea. Please note that it was large enough for three people, especially the cakes! ES never does things by halves…

See what I mean? Definitely enough for at least three people! Yummy cakes! Elder Son can be such a sweetheart ❤️❤️❤️.

These are the spectacular earrings – I think he is also a lover of extreme bling! Takes after his Mum…

I am not sure if I am glamorous enough to be able to wear them, with my grey hair and wrinkles. What do you think?

I will be back on Wednesday with the usual Reading Roundup post. Until then…

Love and best wishes,

    Happy belated Mother’s Day, Anne! Your family did a wonderful job in making the day special for you. The earrings are quite beautiful and yes, bling! I think you can pull it off. The dark blue earrings will look especially nice with your Jaguar Quetzal and Le Jardin de la Maharani. And many others, I’m sure. Sorry but I am terrible at remembering the cw of all of your beautiful scarves.

    Best wishes for a lovely weekend.

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment, Cynthia! Yes, I had a really good day. Your suggestions for the earrings are spot on, but there is something I will have to admit. These earrings are very large and heavy (my son loves bling!) and I am not sure that my poor ears can cope with them. It’s a shame as they are rather lovely. Well, I will try and see if I can manage them for a little while so that he sees me wearing them. Love and best wishes, Anne XXX
