    Hubby and the kids surprised me tonight with some gifts. I was totally shocked. I got 10 tea towels (totally needed) and 4 pairs of bed socks. The socks brought so many laughs. Ds3 decided he had to wear the white and grey striped ones and I had to wear the purple ones. He is just wearing a spiderman shirt (no nappy) and thigh high striped socks. He dancing and singing. He looks live he would fit right in at any rave.

    God I love these kids.

    I'd have loved a special Mother's Day for my first Mother's Day!! With a mushy card message. That's the stuff that gets me!
    I did get a (short) sleep in and then DH brought DS in with my card (which was actually a bloody birthday card, not even a Mother's Day card. He paid zero attention buying it. Fail). And then he brought me in a coffee and we hung out in bed. I would have loved some pictures of us all in bed together or at all through the day on my first Mother's Day. Or even a proper Mother's Day card!! He then realised I was disappointed and bought me a generic mum mug.
    We had a nice day out with another family, but nothing really special or personal that tells me I'm appreciated. A nice card with a mushy message would have made all the difference.

    DH made me a beautiful dinner of really yummy fish, with lemon butter sauce. Then Lemon Meringue pie from the cheesecake shop for desert.

    and Dom Perignon to wash it all down.

    I was hoping for a lovely coffee with a big snuggle in bed with everyone (DH, DD and the dog), a card and me not doing any cooking/laundry/ lunches for the day.

    Sadly DH had surgery yesterday because of his appendix so DD and I spent the night at a hotel near the hospital (2.5hrs away from home).

    This morning DD & I walked around the shops, lots of up and down the corridors in the hospital, more time at the shops and then finally headed home.

    An overtired 1 year old and hospitals do not mix.

    DH has said I can have Mother's Day in lieu once he is better.

    Thankfully he is KatiesMum

    He is home resting now which is good. DH also doesn't do well in hospital LOL.

    I did get a lovely pressie made by DD which made my night - when DH remembered where he put it.

    I am making myself nutella cheesecake today for yesterday hehe

    I am so glad that so many of you lovely mums had a good day.

    Mine was bitterly disappointing. DH can kiss Father's Day goodbye. That's all I feel up to saying.

    I didn't have a mind blowing Mothers Day but I did still have a lovely day all up and still got lots of hugs and kisses from DH and DS.

    I got a huge bunch of gorgeous flowers from them on the Saturday. On the Sunday DH woke me up early because we needed to drive into town to give my mum her gift before she worked all day. We then went out for breakky. Headed to MILs after that to give her her gift. DS and I then potted some plants while DH mowed the yard. DS and I then walked our HUGE yard picking up toys that our dog had carted throughout etc. We sat down for a movie and some lunch as I was feeling a little ill for some reason. BIL then came and got DS to take him yabbying with his step son so I tidied the house a little. When they came back I told him to leave step son here for a play and pick him up later so the two had a blast.

    It was actually just a lovely day pottering around with DS and at times DH.

    I'm glad so many of you had really nice mothers days.

    I got my Adriano Zumbo book - so everyone be prepared for the photos of the massive macaron tower I will be making!

    I also got a beautiful card DD made. DP helped her and that card looks perfect. I love it. DD scribbled inside it and I'll keep it forever.

    DP and I got up together and made a mega breakfast of pancakes with choc chips, maple bacon, ice cream, toast, hash browns, eggs! DP made DD pancakes shaped like things and we just had the best time cooking and eating together.

    Here's what I would like! The reality version that I got is in the 'Dissapointing Mothers Day' thread.

    Sleep in. DH has got DD and himself breakfast and tidied it up. Sit on couch while DH gets me breakfast. DH has bought me a card and written something nice on it (DD is only 23 months so can't quite do this yet)
    Then - DH has planned a nice family outing somewhere for the morning.
    While DD is napping in the afternoon, DH has booked me in for a massage somewhere.
    DH plans dinner for all 3 of us, cooks it and cleans it up.
    He then tidies the house before we go to bed, while I watch TV or have a bath.

    Or I could win tattslotto. My chances are probably better!
