Mother's Day 2015






Photo by Master J

Happy Mother's Day! Today I took our youngest six children to the beach to enjoy time together in the wonderful outdoors. We were having a great time exploring when our second eldest, Master J, turned up as a Mother's Day surprise! He had driven over three hours from Uni to surprise me! Wow, I had no idea he was coming - what a joy to have him drop in for a few hours!

We later had my mother in law over for afternoon tea at our home. It was a beautiful day and the children certainly made sure I felt very much appreciated! I hope your day was special too.

It was a wonderful day in so many ways. In the end it was only myself and our youngest who didn’t know. Very well kept secret - I had no idea!
