Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mums out there
Mia cooked pancakes for me this morning and they were sooo fluffy
and Ella gave me some Frangipani hand cream from the mother;s day stall, Mia gave me a recipe journal from the Mother;s day stall, DH gave me potted purple dailias
and a beautiful card to my wife on mother;'s day..
I also received some exclusive expensive Max Brenner chocs from DH wow if you haven't had the opportunity to try them do yourself a favour - beware they are expensive but worth it mmmmmmmmmmmm
And the girls gave me the Julie Goodwin cookbook which I have been drooling over as I sit on the couch with this ankle. only 4 more days off my foot then ican gradually put some weight onto it - wow it has been a very long 15 days housebound

whoooooo i am excited

I am so excited that Lou Nelson is our Guest DT over at Bonsscraps
She has just put her first layout in the gallery a few minutes ago
and it rocks!! She used the boy kit from Bons and it looks sensational


Outside my loungeroom window today I see my beautiful old roses - they are putting their smiling faces up so I can see them - deep crimson velvety roses mmmmm
just wish I could go and smell them .... old roses make me smile and these beautiful ladies bloom nearly all year round.

I am grateful for Natalie, Narelle,Fiona, Jill, Jenny,Dee Dee for helping me in my hour of need (or in this case my 14days of need)
I am thinking how I am going to take the walker into the bedroom and get some scrapping stuff out as i am feeling a little creative... only way I can think of doing it is crawl - note to self: wait until you can walk .....
I am reading Long Walk to Freedom by nelson Mandela...
I am reading lots and lots of creative blogs....

I am grateful for my beautiful girls who seem to be growing up too quickly..

Ella went on an excursion yesterday to the Art Gallery, and a Radio Station
When I asked how her excursion was her reply was"absolutely brilliant Mum - you know the painting of the lady looking to the ground feeling sad? Well the lady who was talking to us about the art said we need to look for what the painting is trying to tell us.. I was asking very important questions mum the lady told me - you know I loved that painting and it had a message ...
the message was for the lady in the painting to look up to heaven and be happy........Ella, did the lady who was explaining to the painting tell you that was the message of the painting - no mum I worked it out by myself..
Bless her creative caring heart..

more gratitude

To Jill and Doug for bringing over a delish dinner for Ella and myself last night.
I went back to the Dr today and guess what ?? ANother 7 days off the foot
tendon and lig. damage and if I were a footballer I would have been sidelined for at least 6 weeks....

Hugs to my beautiful friend N who took me to the Dr, got my medication, made me cups of tea, and gave me lots of love - this lady who has a chronically ill son, fractured her ankle 6 months ago and she is still in pain has been so lovely to me while I try to recover, I am so gratful to you N thank you darling friend.

More gratitude to Fiona and Amy who, both came over today and cleaned my house, so now as I lay on the couch with foot up I see a beautiful house you are my beautiful angel friends thank you soooo much...

Natalie you are another friend (a very new special friend) who is an angel, tonight Nat has taken Ella home from school giving her dinner (good luck with that one Nat as she is the fussiest eater on the planet) and a sleepover so I can rest

I am truly blessed
thank you so much
