Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there, especially my own Mum (I know you read this lol) as I've forgotten as usual to post your card - I'll post it first thing tomorrow Mum, promise :-)

This morning I opened my pressies from my gorgeous children :-) I got a fantastic picture frame, decorated by LMS, who is the least creative person I know! I put her in a flat spin when I told her I wanted something creative created by her for Mother's Day lol. And the picture frame has instructions that it is for a photograph of my FOUR children together - I can't wait to take that photo :-) I also got a lovely new handbag from Drama Teen and Little Prince and cards from all of them :-) Thank you so much you three, you are the best :-)

And to all my friends who are still waiting for their child, you are in my thoughts as today must be a hard day for you.

UPDATE: LMS had just rung to wish me Happy Mother's Day and explained about the picture frame lol. It started off plain white, and she painted it yellow and tried to paint all the children's names round the edge. That apparently went horrible wrong, so she painted the whole thing black to cover it up!! Then she painted multi coloured splodges all over it to brighten it up. I love it LMS and will treasure it forever :-) Its just like when you were in Primary School lol

Hi Kristine,
Happy English Mother's Day to you too :-)
I just can't wait to put a photo of all four of them in the frame :-) Just the thought is making me well up :-)

I feel mildly patronised :P

I'm glad you liked it LOL And next year I refuse to be creative, or ever again LOL I'm not even slightly offended by the comment that I'm the least creative person ever, because it's just so true!!! :)

Hope you're having a great day mum *hugs*

PS I think you should post a picture of my creative creation, especially as "black with coloured splodges on" sounds awful but the reality isn't TOOO bad :P

I'm not patronising, just being honest and you know it :-)

Lots of love
