My special Mothers day

The pretty bouquet of  flowers from my son

Mothers day was spent with my wonderful family. We often dine at Masu a Japanese Restaurant in the City, and that is where we went and enjoyed a delicious lunch.
The food set up on the buffet table looked amazing and it was choosing what dish you would put on your plate and if you had room for another little try of something divine.

At the end they brought out this large platter of dessert and fruit, which I must say was delectable.

I feel so thankful to have such beautiful children and they make me very proud. I was showered with lovely cards, gifts, a cup and saucer with the sweet quote ' There is always time for tea', notepad,   flowers, and chocolates so was very spoilt

May is full of celebrations here, with Mothers Day and two birthdays, so it is going to be a busy fun month

Happy new week, dear friends

  16. Oh Carolyn, I finally got to see a sweet picture of you. It sounds like you had a very nice Mother's Day, and the Japanese restaurant sounds great. I went to an Italian restaurant, which is my favorite food. This bouquet of flowers from your son is so pretty, love the colors. The cup "There is always time for tea" sounds delightful......and so true. :)
