usually starts early.
the kids are so excited to give me their presents they can barely wait till the sun rises.
blurry-eyed, i summon up all the cheer i can muster
(i am NOT a morning person)
and we all open my gifts and read their hand-made cards
my eyes welled up
they had written such beautiful words
brimming with so much heartfelt love
that the room was almost aglow with it
they scamper off to make me a cup of tea in my favourite
and a slice of delicious, buttery pannetone...
the day is full of promise
|paul has been charged with the task of making |
beetroot gnocchi with kale pesto for our lunch
|the beetroot gnocchi with kale pesto was a ripper|
|lily flipping out her wobbly and perfectly luscious lemon pannacotta|
|all the girls..my impossibly youthful mum, who|
lives to dote on us all.
she is truly inspiring and selfless
i hope to be much like her someday.
i love you mum.
