Ingredients for a great Mothers day

 Breakfast in bed with my nearest and dearest.

Handmade cards(love them above all) and the new Katie Melua CD (sticking with our CD, DVD or book rule for these type of celebrations). Am lovign it by BTW - stunningly relaxing and truly beautiful.
 A walk in the neighbourhood while C proudly takes puppy B on her leash.

Feeding our street's chickens 
 A pretty little birthday girl
Lovely dry Cap Classique
Good friends and company, ribs and chips galore.

And yummy home made birthday cake for desert rounded off with some of the best coffee in town.

Thanks to my family who went out of their way to make the day special for me.
BTW - it is mid may and it was so nice and warm that Hunter and the Princess had a swim at our friends (granted, the pool is heated). Today feels like winter - just like that the seasons have changed.

PS I am way behind on both blogging and reading - life and work's been very busy. Hope your day was great - wil get to your blog soon.

    1. But remember I listen to Classic FM on my car radio. I grew up wiht classics and jazz so I guess it is inborn

    2. I LOVE Katie Melua and saw in her in concert a few years ago at Kirstenbosch. It was DEFINITELY one of my all-time favourite concert experiences. She has TREMENDOUS talent. I also listen to FMR in the car - not sure if you can pick it up, it's all classical.
