I had a good mother's day with some lovely presents - smellies and a lovely pretty keyring from my daughter, and a gorgeous soft teddy bear with "Best Gran Ever" bracelet round his arm from my darling grandson.
My daughter took me to lunch a couple of days beforehand because she had forgotten to book anywhere, so last Thursday we went to one of my favourite lunch venues. My grandson had had a pupil assessment meeting that morning, he had glowing reports from his teachers so it was a combined early Mother's day and "Well Done Mr Teen" lunch.
Most of yesterday was spent sitting in the garden with family enjoying lovely warm weather. I can't sit for long though before thinking, "that needs pruning", or "that bit needs tidying" so up I get up and reach for the secateurs. I'm my own worst enemy!
I've been eating way too many hot cross buns, I love them.
On the same day as our lunch I had a check up at the dentist while my daughter was at school with my grandson. My dentist was pleased but made, in her words, "one minor observation" two molar teeth, one at each side of my mouth, or to be more precise, the gums around the molar teeth, are slightly inflamed, due to me not cleaning thoroughly up to the gum area. Both are crowned and I'm not getting into the tiny gap between the crown and gum. So following instructions I have been more diligent, actually ruthless to the extent whereby they are hurting ever so slightly, but my dentist did say not to worry if they bleed a bit, it will take a few days for the inflammation to subside, mmm sounds like a line from a comedy film!
A parcel of goodies is on its way to my daughter and her partner in Australia. Some Easter eggs, Lindt bunnies, a huge bar of Cadbury's milk chocolate, star mix, soft drumsticks and some marshmallows. I think they are all available over there now but are quite expensive, so I send a few each year, I enjoy sending them, and my daughter loves receiving them.
Today's weather is warm and sunny so I am going to sit in the garden. I wonder how long I can last before spotting something that needs tidying or pruning! :-)
