Mothering Sunday

Yesterday was the UK version of Mother’s Day.  I think technically it’s not about mothers but a time when people went back to their “mother” church. I think I read that somewhere many moons ago so don’t go repeating what I just said… it’s probably all wrong.  Anyhoo it’s also a time to honor mothers.  Being a mother you’d think I’d get a little something special… breakfast in bed… coffee…nope! No coffee in bed with a card and a lie-in for me! We all got up as usual, went to church and then swim lessons for Squidge.  After swimming we headed to Chinatown and had a nice walk around and lunch.  We also stopped off at Wong Wong Bakery for some yummy custard buns- nom nom nom!!   It turned out to be a fantastic day, I love nothing better than walking around this fantastic city especially if it ends w/ Chinese food!

One of these days I’m going to get a good photo of the gates!

She’s getting pretty good with the chopsticks.  She actually managed to eat a little bit but then decided it was all too much trouble.  Soon after I took this photo she put down the chopsticks and just started eating with her fingers!

This is what I get when I tell  him to smile. Still I love that goofy smirk of his- thanks for a great mother’s day.

Hope all of you UK mama’s out there had a good one too!
