Happy Mother's Day!

I know I should have posted this on Sunday or yesterday at least but I was too lazy to upload the pictures from my camera as they weren't alot. Anyways in the UK we celebrate Mother's Day on the 3rd of April, I guess most countries have their own dates for Mother's Day, I know in Indonesia they celebrate it on the 22nd of December but hey, who cares on the dates as long as they have a special day to celebrate Mother's Day? I know my own mother deserves a special day for her who has taken care of me and my four siblings since we were born as well as their children now and then.

I went to hubby's parents on Sunday to give my mother in law a bouquet of flowers and a mother's day card, I'm shamed to say that I thought to give her an embroidered pillow that I've been making since months ago but still not yet finished and I didnt have time to buy her any gift, so i guess the pillow will have to be given on later dates once it's finished :)

We didn't stay long at her house coz it seems like she's had the flu, I hope she'll get better soon and we might have to do a weekly shopping for her if she's not up to it.

I've been trying to read a novel that i bought last year but seems like my mind is elsewhere, I used to be really hooked up in reading, especially from my fave authors Julia Quinn, Johanna Lindsey and Christine Feehan to name a few but I guess right now my mind is occupied on doing craft projects :)

I love the tea mug and has several more like it with different pattern, i bought it at Beales and it's from Guildcrest Collection. I can't remember how much was it but it was under a fiver :)

and Nope, those books have not been read by me yet, still brand new and bought by hubby for me and I really should try and start reading again *sigh*. Anyways, Happy Tea Time Tuesday and Happy Belated Mother's Day! :)

PS: I entered a giveaway at The White Chair
