Happy Mother's Day

I've really enjoyed my Mother's Day today and have been thoroughly spoilt. As you can see, I've been given two gorgeous cards as well as lots of chocolate, Wuthering Heights dvd and some measuring cups. I always find it confusing converting cups to grams. If I'm honest I still can't get used to grams, I still work in ounces, but now I have no excuse to tackle all those recipes which are written in cups, I've been wanting some of these for ages.
Inside my card from Eleanor there was a little piece of paper with a poem made up by her and she promptly produced a little box for me to open. Inside was this gorgeous silver brooch.

After breakfast we decided to go to Ilkley, a town on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. We had a lovely walk along the river and then a mooch around the shops.

I thought I would show you a little gift which I got from Eleanor for Mother's Day a few years ago which she made at Brownies. I thought it was so lovely at the time and have kept it ever since.

It's Mum's Survival Kit, it contains everything a mum needs to survive.

I hope you've all had a lovely Mother's Day too.
