I have been given the most beautiful bunch of tulips today. Apparently S wanted to give me some colourful flowers and these certainly fit that description, they really are stunning.
Along with the flowers S gave me the 'mum' chocolates.
T spent a couple of hours in town on his own yesterday choosing me a heart shaped box of strawberry champagne truffles and an oh so pretty Paperchase notebook because it looks like it could be a CK pattern and he knows I like making lists.
My sister was bringing mum over for lunch today so in preparation I baked a chocolate cake and inspired by this picture in the latest Co-op magazine I topped off my cake
with bunting made from cutting up a floral page from an old CK magazine.
I received high praise indeed from T who declared this cake with added grated apple (although he doesn't know about the apple) as delicious.
Along with the cushion I found during half term I gave my mum some tete-a-tete daffodils planted up in daffodil patterned mug which I found last year at a fete. The words on the front say 'A mother's love makes all things bright and beautiful.' A perfect gift for my daffodil loving mum.
