    Hi Guys

    I posted earlier this week, it is Mothering Sunday today. As well as the fantastic HiLo table and cutting mat that DH and DD bought for me, here is the haul of goodies that they gave me this morning..... there is a pair of silver and mother of pearl earing too, but I was wearing them when I took the picture.

    I am a very lucky girl and I adore them both!

    Hugs

    That's what I was about to say, Sue, 'cause I'm a Mum or Mummy, too.
    Very nice for you Caroline!

    You got some very nice things. Is that like Mother's Day here or do celebrate both holidays?

    The UK only has one Mothering Sunday, it is indeed the equivalent of the US Mothers Day.

    Hi Guys,

    Yes... Mothering Sunday and Mothers Day are indeed the same thing... I think Mothering Sunday is just a slightly old fashioned term for it....but then I am a bit of an old fashioned gal!

    I know that you have your Mothers Day in May so we expect to see all the goodies that you get too.

    But I have to say that the best gift of all is when your children say "I love you" and you can see that love reflected in their eyes...... makes it all worth while!

    Hugs
